It's not every day you go on vacation, so why not indulge in some luxury? The Mansión Mérida on the Park (C. 59 # 498 por 58 y 60 Col Centro) and the Hotel Casa Azul (Calle 60, 343, Centro) are a few of the top upmarket properties here. If you're the sort of traveler who would rather spend all their time out exploring, a swanky suite may not be to your taste. Some terrific budget accommodations to consider are the Art Apart Hostel (Calle 60 No. 456A x 53 y 51) and the Hostal La Ermita (CALLE 77 # 528A X 68 Y 70).
Put on your headphones and watch a couple of in-flight flicks. Before you know it, you'll be hitting the runway at Manuel Crescencio Rejon International Airport (MID). It's approximately 3 miles (5 kilometers) to the southwest from the middle of Merida.
While the usual tourist areas in Merida can be nice to see, why not head a little further out and explore completely new sights with a rental car via Travelocity?
Picking up the car keys right at Manuel Crescencio Rejon International Airport means you'll be out of the terminal and behind the wheel in the blink of an eye. Head to Mex Rent A Car and Fox Rental Cars.
Get your rental vehicle in the middle of town and you'll be navigating the busy streets in a flash. A go-to outlet here is Alamo Rent A Car at Ave Colon Y Calle 60, Local 2 Col Centro.
Spend a Sunday morning at Merida Cathedral. While you're here, why not take a minute to sit in the pews and lose yourself in silent prayer. Want some more ideas? Hidalgo Park is a lush haven that's easily accessible from the main downtown area. After a busy morning of exploring, recline in one of its shady spots. And that's not all there is. Choose a comfortable vantage point and watch life roll by at Plaza Grande. If you feel talkative, this time-worn public area is also a great place to strike up a conversation with the locals.
Travel is the best teacher. Not only does it open our eyes to the world and its marvels, it can inspire us to form new friendships and learn from others' experiences. So, are you ready to head off to your next amazing lesson?
