Merida is the business and cultural center of the Yucatan peninsula. Known as the “White City” possibly due to its cleanliness, white painted buildings, and the use of white limestone in the construction of its buildings, Merida continues to honor its Mayan past while growing into a modern thriving tourist destination.
World class culture and Mayan ruins are only a small part of why people love Merida. The food in the Yucatan is in a class all its own. Not typical “Mexican Food”, the food is inspired by traditional Mayan meals and culture. A culinary city, Merida is filled with restaurants showcasing traditional Yucatecan cuisine and fusion dishes mixing old and new. Merida is also home to some of the best street food around and huge local markets. It is impossible to leave Merida hungry.
