Mérida is the capital of the Yucatan state and the largest city in the area as well. It is one of the safest cities in North America, yes you’ve heard me right (the only safer city in Canada is Quebec city…)! The city has strong Mayan, French, Spanish, British and Lebanese influence that make it culturally rich and very interesting. You will find multiple museums, art galleries, movie theaters, restaurants. Merida has kept a lot of its colonial buildings and walking around town is truly spectacular.
