This park is right outside our hotel door (El Gran). Free WiFi, lots of benches and shade. It's a great place to stop and rest during your walk around town. It's very close to the main plaza but has a much calmer feel. It comes alive Thursday evenings with music and craft vendors.

Very close (one block!) to the main square, but so much more relaxed! Plus some great restaurants close by!

This is a block away from the Cathedral Small very well preserved park in honor to the founder of the republic and first revolutionary who started the Mexican Independence. Good place to rest, have a bite at the restaurants around it or have your shoes shined

This small park is near the gran plaza but less busy. It is a great place to sit, relax and soak up the magic of the city.

We enjoyed sitting and people-watching here, as well as having excellent food and drinks at an outdoor table at the Mansion Merida. Free wi-fi is available in the park, too!

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.
