In this perfect little park right in the middle of everything is a microcosm of the city. Hawkers selling wares, menu wielding guys trying to entice you to come visit their establishments and lots,of folks just resting their tired feet. One could spend hours here!

My Hotel Caribe was on this square. Nice little plaza with vendors selling arts and crafts. I bought my Amber Necklace from Noberto and his wife on this plaza. You can order a meal from the Manson Hotels Kitchen or the Hotel Caribes or the Grand Plaza Hotels who all have tables and chairs for their diners. There are taxis... More

Just out the front door of our hotel. Great place for drinks, food and local flavor with many restaurants, bars and vendors.

A gorgeous setting for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Tables outside hotels and cafe's line two sides and it's nice and shady to escape the heat. Super friendly staff that even called a friend who came to meet me to take me on a tour!

Merida has many nice parks but this one is very large and is surrounding by a bunch of historical buildings. Make it part of your walking tour especially to stop for a refreshment.

A very nice quiet place but just a short distance from the Central Plaza and Santa Lucia Park. A few vendors and artwork but no hustle about it.

As many have noted, this is a peaceful spot surrounded by some lovely hotels with outdoor restaurants and a pub. I Often came here, just a block or two from Plaza Grande, to avoid the masses and chaos there. Be sure to go inside the hotels to check out the architecture; we asked as we entered each (with cameras) and... More

If you are a people watcher - you will love this little park in the center of Merida. The benches are are not that great but if the weather is nice, I could spend a lot of time in this little park just watching all the different people pass by. A great place to 'rest' if you are on vacation... More

Because we stayed here Friday to Sunday there was always something going on in the park. Music, markets wonderful. Our hotel opened onto the park so it was easy to find our way back each time we ventured out.

I love Merida's green spaces -- the neighborhood parks in the historic center are great places to stop and relax between jaunts from one place to another. Hidalgo is very near the main plaza but a bit quieter. It's cool and shady. There are several good places to eat nearby. Shops to explore after you've rested. The surrounding architecture and...
