Merida, the capital of Yucatan, came through the convergence of three major cultures: the Mayan, Spanish and the Lebanese, which, with its architecture, cuisine and people, gave Merida a unique personality. Tradition and modernity go together in this magical city. There is harmony between imposing archeological sites, colonial and modern buildings. Merida is a paradise of quietness. In its colonial buildings, Mayan ruins and art, it has become a place of elegance and contrast due to the quietness of this city and the beauty of its streets. Its cuisine, layered by exquisite food culture, takes over your taste buds.  Plaza Mayor is a popular meeting point for the local people to enjoy popular drinks like champola and sorbet.
