2023-05-25 | merida

In addition to its tourist attractions within the city, tourists staying at the historical center hotels in Merida can also visit various places in this beautiful space, which are just a few minutes away. Therefore, it is pertinent to comment on some of them so that people can enjoy these paradisiacal sites before ending their visit.

First of all, this city is known for its incredible streets surrounded by white buildings or colonial architecture, which are ideal for visiting if it is the first time you stay in the historical center hotels in Merida. It is also recommended that you tour the different museums, where you will find history, ancient relics, and other objects that will surprise you on your trip.

Uxmal

The ancient city of Uxmal is from the Maya, where you will find beautiful architecture surrounded by some pyramids, named Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. So, if you decide to travel to Mérida, you must also know its essential surroundings, full of history and green spaces, there you will connect with the ancestors of the place through stories and palace buildings.

Once you are in Uxmal, you can visit the Pyramid of the Soothsayer, the Nun's Quadrangle, the Governor's Palace, the ball game, the Great Pyramid, and the House of the Pigeons; in general, they are very particular architectures and show a sophisticated part of the Mayan culture, where you will discover several secrets and the reason for the names of each of the spaces, related to legends or stories that will leave you surprised.

Emerald Coast

People staying at hotels in Mérida can set aside a day to enjoy the spaces found in Costa Esmeralda, north of the city; the name of this place is due to the color of the sea because it resembles a greenish hue, similar to the precious stone. If you want to have a pleasant time at the beach, we recommend you start your trip in the morning to take advantage of each one of the attractions.

The attractions of Costa Esmeralda are the beaches of Puerto Progreso, San Crisanto mangroves, Chicxulub, Uaymintún, and the sighting of flamingos, Dzilam Bravo, and its pink lagoons, among other places that you can enjoy during the tour. You don't necessarily have to go to the last site. You can choose any of those mentioned and only visit those specific ones.

Cenotes

Its name comes from the Maya, which means "cavern with water" they were considered sacred spaces because it was believed that the god of rain inhabited the place, which is why purification ceremonies were performed. Now, they are natural wells with fresh and crystalline waters; some are several meters deep and allow the passage of aquatic life.

If you are staying at the boutique hotels in Merida and consider yourself a nature lover, we recommend you visit the various cenotes near the city, where you can enter and relax if you wish; some people even venture into them for them scuba diving.

Chichén Itzá

After it was selected as one of the seven wonders of the world, the number of local and foreign tourists, who visit the Mayan architecture to be dazzled and take several souvenir pictures, increased considerably. Therefore, take advantage of the opportunity to visit the beautiful pyramid and discover different historical stories surrounding the place.

Caves

The caves are generated in a process similar to the cenotes, caused by the filtration of rainwater that naturally dissolves the rocks over the years; the main difference is that they remain dry or with very little liquid due to their water table. So these caves or caverns originate below the earth's ground, being incredible places to visit and excursion.

In addition, you may find people who carry out exhibitions or various activities inside the caves so that you will find a renewed and different experience during the tour. These sites are highly recommended for individuals with an adventurous spirit and nature lovers.

Remember that at the end of the day, you can rest in the comfortable hotels in Merida's historic center, where you will get a refreshing sleep, so you can continue visiting the other destinations that catch your attention.
