Merida is a great city with many sights and a very good infrastructure. The historic center with its nice bars and restaurants is particularly beautiful. The traces of the ancient mayas can be found everywhere. Public transport is available and it is also very safe on the way home at night.

It is the safest city I have been to. I have never been bored at anything in the city. Awesome public transportation even at nightime. Climate was a little tough for me.
