Merida Flights Guide
The capital of Mexico’s Yucatan state is a colonial city settled in the midst of Mayan history. The climate is tropical, the architecture is old, and the culture is excruciatingly tantalizing.
Merida has the largest public plaza in Mesoamerica. It is beautiful, lush, and the birds that cackle constantly are often broken up by vendors who come prepared with balloons to pop. The Merida Cathedral is the oldest in the Americas, and the surrounding buildings on the other sides of the Plaza Grande are survivors of early colonization, including the Casa de Montejo. Paseo Montejo is elsewhere in the city, and it might look familiar for anyone acquainted with Paris’ Champs-Elysees avenue, on which it was based. It is lined by Victorian mansions and the confusing root systems of large shady trees. At the Palacio Canton the Archaeology Museum is housed, which exhibits many artifacts from the Mayan ruins that dot the surrounds. Merida is close to many ruins, including Uxmal to the south, Dzibilchaltun to the north and Chichen Itza to the east. Before leaving on a journey to these ruins, one should be sure to visit the Merida market, where Mexican culture is put on grand display in the form of food stalls and orchata kiosks.
The Manuel Crescencio Rejon International Airport serves the immediate area. Cancun is the bigger airport. Airlines that arrive to Merida include VivaAerobus, Aeromexico, Interjet, MAYair, Neo Air, United and Volaris.
