The ideal itinerary to get to know Mérida on a weekend

Experience the enchantment of the White City in just two days.

2022-04-06 | merida

Sometimes when we plan a trip to a city like Mérida, we usually look to spend at least a week, but it cannot be easy to find a whole week in the calendar to get to know the white city, so we suggest you get away for a weekend. This article will help you make an itinerary to see as much as possible during your stay in hotels in Mérida for only two days.

What to do in Mérida on a Friday afternoon?

Ideally, arriving on Friday afternoon would help you get the most out of your trip. This way, you can come at a good time to check into the hotels in Mérida. After dropping your bags in your room, it is time to start sightseeing.

We recommend that you begin your trip in the first square of Mérida, where you can breathe all the essence of Yucatán; you will perceive the aroma of fresh marquesitas besides listening to the unmistakable Yucatecan accent.

In this area, you will find the Plaza Grande, a place dominated by birds that harmonize with their singing and flapping. Watching the sunset with birds flying is always a unique experience only possible in this plaza. You can also stroll through the park and sit and watch the locals enjoying the beginning of the weekend.

If you arrive late at night, don't miss the chance to walk around downtown Mérida, it is entirely different to see the city at night than during the day; they are unique experiences alike, this way you can take advantage of the short time you have in the city to absorb all its beauty. For this reason, we recommend looking for hotels in the historical center of Mérida, because it will be easier to walk around at night.

Nightlife in Mérida.

The good thing about arriving on a Friday is the possibility of making the most of the nightlife. All around the city, there are good nightclubs to visit. But, if you are more laid-back, there are popular bars in the northern part of the city.

Mérida has something for everyone, from places where you can dance to the best Latin music to nightclubs with DJs playing electronic music and the most popular songs.

If your trip to the white city is to enjoy the nightlife, we suggest you look for hotels in Mérida close to the nightclubs you want to visit so that you can move around more easily.

What to do in Mérida on a Saturday?

To make the most of your short stay, we recommend you wake up early, so you can have a leisurely breakfast and start planning the attractions you will visit during the day. Likewise, you should attend the Great Museum of the Mayan World, especially if you are passionate about Mesoamerican culture.

Visiting the Great Museum of the Mayan World is an enriching experience; the moment you walk through its doors, you will feel part of the world of one of these great ancient civilizations, their culture, history, religion, art, and lifestyle.

Likewise, there are several museums to visit, and getting lost in the streets of the white city is an excellent plan to enjoy your stay in Mérida hotels to the fullest.

What will you eat during your stay in Mérida?

Yucatecan cuisine is a delight not to be missed. Be sure to visit the restaurants where they have the typical dishes of Yucatán; among them, the most famous are panuchos, salbutes, papadzules, black filling, cochinita, stuffed cheese, vaporcitos, and lime soup.

One of the best places to eat is always in the markets, so we recommend you visit the Lucas de Gálvez Market, known for its variety of delicious Yucatecan snacks with homemade flavor.

What to do on a Sunday in Mérida?

Sunday is ideal for a Yucatecan brunch, so we recommend visiting Hacienda Xcanatún, an old henequen hacienda restored and converted into a museum and restaurant. So not only will you be able to say goodbye to Yucatecan gastronomy in style, but you will also be able to see bicentennial trees and walk through its magical gardens.

Book a room at Hotel Künük.

If you enjoy colonial architecture, the best way to experience it is by staying at one of the boutique hotels in Mérida, like Hotel Künük. Make a reservation with us by calling (999) 924 0208.
