Dancers in colorful dresses performing at Fiesta Americana


Mérida is known as the "White City" not only for its limestone buildings, but also for its vibrant cultural scene. Throughout the year, the city offers a wide variety of cultural events, from art exhibitions and concerts to film and dance festivals. Every Monday, enjoy the traditional Mexican Night at Parque Santa Lucía, where you will find live music, folk dances, and local crafts.

The city of Mérida celebrates its traditional festivities with fervor. Among the most notable are Hanal Pixán (Day of the Dead), where the streets are filled with colorful altars and offerings for the deceased, and the Mérida Carnival, an explosion of color, music and dance that takes place in February. Don't forget to visit during the city's anniversary in January, where special events and cultural activities take place.

Mérida's gastronomy is a delicious mix of Mayan, Spanish and Caribbean flavors. Iconic dishes such as cochinita pibil, panuchos, and lime soup delight the palates of locals and visitors alike. Don't miss the opportunity to enjoy dinner at one of the many traditional restaurants offering authentic Yucatecan culinary experiences.
