Mérida in Yucatán, Mexico is a beautiful city with diverse historical architecture and culture influenced by the Mayans, Europe, and Asia.
While I lived in Cancun I liked making occasional trips up to Merida. It was such a large and beautiful colonial city. Being there felt like I went back in time in another era. I loved the architecture, the colors, the food, and all the art museums.
When my mom came to visit me in Cancun, I decided to take her up there for a day. I knew she would love it. We went on a cool bus tour around the city and saw more things I hadn’t seen before. We also took out time walking around downtown and did some shopping.
The architecture around downtown is mostly colonial style with very colorful facades.
Around downtown you can see homes, monuments, and buildings in a variety of architectural styles such as European, Mexican, Mayan, and Asian.
