Main Square (Plaza Grande) Tours

star-5
52 Reviews
Main Square (Plaza Grande)
The Plaza Grande (Main Square) has been the center of Merida since the cathedral was finished in the late 1500s. It’s a pleasant place to sit and watch the locals and visitors in action, with families enjoying a bag of popcorn or popsicles from the excellent paleta shop on one side. There are cafes on the edge in the shade for a leisurely drink or bite to eat and several main shopping and dining streets branch off from here.

On one corner you can hire a carriage driver to give you a tour up to Paseo de Montejo and back, but do it at night when there’s less traffic. Explanations will all be in Spanish, but it’s a picturesque trip through the historic district even if you don’t understand a word.

Using the Plaza Grande as your base, you can walk or take a quick taxi ride to almost anywhere of interest to visitors in the center of Merida.
