Every Saturday night the end of Paseo de Montejo is transformed with a stage and viewing area with folding chairs. From what I'm told it is the luck of the draw as to what type of entertainment will be performed but I lucked out and it was a dance show by the students of the Municipal Dance School for the...

Merida is a vibrant town and offers many attractions for tourists, every day there is some sort of event getting you closer to the culture of Yucatan. Noche Mexicana is one of them. Every Saturday great food, dancing and souvenirs; all for free! You don't lose anything even if it turns out not to be your thing.

The singers and dancers are very professional and a delight to experience. The end of Paseo de Montejo was packed and all the chairs taken by soon after 8 p.m. You will enjoy it, depending on the evening you might want to dress warmly.

The food options werent the greatest, they were normal street food, which we were told the options there were great but maybe we went on an off night. If you have nothing else... More

One of the most typical Mexican events you can attend. It's a stage where mariachis from different parts of the country come and sing and traditional dance groups show off their folkloric state dance to a public sitting around the stage. Free entrance! State dances differ every Saturday -when the event is organized. Make sure you get a little before... More

Fairly incomprehensible if you don't understand Spanish (duh) but the performances and vendors are great. Get dessert (churros, marquesitos) or an elote snack (corn on the cob). So fun.

Definitely check this out. Merida has so many music and dance performance nights and each has its own feel and flavor. In this you see a truly wonderful display of a variety of Mexican dance. You'll be able to enjoy local food vendors and a small selection of local craftspeople. A pleasurable evening for sure.
