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's a wonderful city with a very interesting colonial historic district. It is peaceful and I never felt unsafe walking the streets, day or night.
