The Top 10 Best Things to Do in Merida
1. Discover Local Yucatan Cuisine
Merida is home to some of the best food in Mexico, and while favorites like tacos and elote (corn) Merida boasts some delicious regional dishes that are a must-try for any foodie.
With roots in Mayan cooking but heavily influenced by Europe, the Caribbean, and other regions throughout Mexico, Yucatan cuisine is unique, delicious, and distinctive from anywhere else in Mexico.
Some of our favorite dishes are:
- Huevos Motuleños: a Yucatan specialty breakfast dish of fried eggs over black beans on a fried tortilla, served with salsa, plantains, chorizo, and queso fresco.
- Queso relleno: a hollowed-out ball of Edam cheese filled with ground pork and smothered in gravy.
- Poc-chuc: a traditional Mayan dish marinated of thinly-sliced pork marinated in sour orange juice and served with pickled onions.
- Cochinita pibil (Yucatán-style barbecued pork): this dish of pulled pork shoulder marinated and braised in achiote paste, orange juice, and lime is perfect for tacos.
2. Stroll the Boutiques at Casa Tho
Casa Tho Concept House is named after the Mayan name for Merida, T’hō, and is the perfect place to stroll around on a lazy afternoon.
This stunning renovated mansion offers a handful of boutique shops selling jewelry, clothing, perfumes, and more.

7. Join the BiciRuta

8. Catch a Game of Pok Ta Pok
Pok Ta Pok is an ancient sport that is re-enacted every week in front of the Cathedral. Every Wednesday, head down to watch players fight it out to the sounds of traditional music.
The players slide along the cobblestones while attempting to score by hitting the ball into the post using just their hips.
There’s no Pok Ta Pok league (the game is re-created for entertainment purposes) but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t a fun and exciting spectacle that you can catch every week while living in Merida.
9. Grab a Drink (or Two, or Three)
Happy hour runs late in Merida, and there’s no shortage of places to grab cervezas, margaritas, micheladas, or palomas. You can even try pox (pronounced poche) which is a regional specialty drink made from corn.
If traditional cantinas aren’t your thing, there’s a growing craft beer scene with new options popping up in the centro all the time.
10. Dance in the Streets During a Weekly Fiesta
There’s something to do every night in Merida! At night the city’s streets and plazas light up and come to life with dances, performances, concerts, and more.
On weekends, several of the main streets are closed to traffic and street performers spill out into the streets.
Featuring regional music and dance, these events are open to the public and are often lined with food trucks and pop-up stalls in case you feel hungry after dancing the night away.
