2022-05-18 | merida

There are likely several concerns related to the activities to do during your stay in the boutique hotels in Mérida, especially if it is the first time you have visited this beautiful city and you do not know anything about the attractions that are located in the center of the place and its surroundings. In this article, we provide relevant information about what you can do and see so that you can enjoy your trip to the fullest.

Mérida is commonly known as La Ciudad Blanca (The White City) due to the different buildings surrounding the site, primarily painted in this characteristic color. However, lively and attractive shades are also evident. It is a pleasant place where various traditions that come from ancient times are presented so that visitors know a little about the events or representative customs.

It is recommended that visitors take a walk through the center of the site, enjoying innovative environments in which colonial architecture predominates, being one of the reasons why some tourists call it a Roman city. Walking through the streets, you can witness historic buildings, important museums, and cultural activities, which are mostly dynamic and striking.

Main square

When staying in the historical center hotels in Mérida, you can quickly go to the Plaza Grande, where you will see some representative monuments of the place and the different buildings with ancient architecture; each of these constructions has a story to tell, allowing anyone to identify with the culture, customs, and milestones that marked the city.

Suppose this is the first time you visit Mérida. In that case, this is one of the first stops you should make because there you will learn about the history of the site, its architecture, main church, and Montejo's house museum, among other buildings that will give you a glimpse of antiquity, verifying how the city center was developed and how each of the historical events took place.

Visit the rest of the museums

Those individuals who are interested in history and know that museums are a primary source of knowledge should immediately visit the white city and enjoy the variety of historical spaces that this beautiful place has, in which you can discover landmarks related to the colonial era and various customs or artifacts of the Maya ancestors. Before leaving Mérida, we advise you to take one vacation day and tour each site.

Go shopping

In Mérida, you can buy a variety of handicrafts that will serve as decoration for your home, or you can buy them as a gift for your loved ones, as a sign that you thought of them during your stay in the beautiful white city. Some artistic creations you will find while walking the streets are hats, jewelry, baskets, embroidery, ceramics, and wooden figures, among others.

Likewise, you can visit different markets that sell exotic or traditional foods of the region, which you can add to your preparations or take with you to eat on other occasions. We recommend you try the spices, fruits, or foods you find attractive for their smell or texture to delight yourself with the flavors and experience new sensations.

The dishes are composed of Mayan ingredients such as corn, chili, tomato, pumpkin, or beans, mixed with pork, orange, or garlic from Europe and the Middle East, with which exquisite meals are prepared; among them, panuchos, salbutes, lime soup, cochinita pibil, black filling or cheese stuffed.

On the other hand, if you like to learn more about the region's traditional dishes, you can visit the Museum of Yucatecan Gastronomy, where you will learn about the origins and influences of the preparations on display. Remember that each of these spaces is close to the boutique hotels in Mérida.
