We went to the market here on a Sunday and bought some Mayan made items. There is a lot of the same things being sold by lots of people, so think about what you want there. It was hot out but we found a place to buy some water nearby and lots of great food all around this area. Very fun and friendly place to go!

Plaza Grande is a must see in Merida. Located at the downtown or “historical center of Merida”. Always is crowded and Lot of shows like typical dances for instances can be seen there. I always like to visit the Plaza when a I visit Merida.

This is a gathering spot for Merideños of all ages to chat, stroll, and enjoy each others' company, and the site on weekends of lots of artisan stalls (geared toward a tourist clientele). Our visit coincided with the Vaquería Festival, with lots of music and dance accompanied by a running jokey dialogue from the designated emcee. The plaza is fronted by the cathedral, the Casa de Montejo (one of the oldest buildings in the city, dating from the mid-16th century), restaurants, ice cream stores, and the like. Quite a pleasant place to spend a bit of time when touring the city.

The plaza is nice and some of the surrounding buildings, but the cathedral is a MUST. Unfortunately it os only ilumintated by night on Saturdays.

The town square was really neat. We didn't have much time to sight see or shop here, but it was a quaint little square. All the old houses and buildings were beautiful. Learning about Merida's history was really cool too!
