We visited mid afternoon and it was not bustling with activity. It as peaceful and there is free WiFi in the square. Fun to just sit and relax and watch the people go by.

If you're in Barrio Santiago, the fresh market (Mercado Santiago) is fantastic. You can buy fresh meat, vegetables, fruit and flowers. Some evenings there's live music and dancing in the park as well.

Smaller and with more trees than other parques in Merida, as well as a fountain, Santiago was my favorite, with its pretty church, and immaculate mercado. It is worth the walk.

We stayed a block away from Parque Santiago and it was great to have nearby for a variety of reasons: First, the produce market, which had basics for us. Second, for the great launchers around the market, for having salbutes, panuchos and a jamaica. Third,...More

We visited this spot on our first evening, as it was close to our hotel and my friend has difficulty walking far. It was very crowded with mainly local people, apparently enjoying themselves. We found a very uncomfortable seat, had a frankly horrible meal from...More
