Two days in Mérida give you ample opportunity to see the best of the city’s art, culture, and cuisine, as well as time to escape to a nearby village or archaeological site. Here’s how to see the best of Mérida in just 48 hours.

Day 1: Morning

Wake up early to explore Mérida on a walking or bike tour, which provide a great introduction for first-time visitors. Staple stops include Zocalo (Central Square), Merida Cathedral, Casa de Montejo, and the Municipal Palace. Alternatively, you can take the opportunity to stroll—or ride in a carriage—down Paseo de Montejo.

Day 1: Afternoon

Pick up some souvenirs and snacks from the Lucas de Galvez Market in the afternoon or get to grips with the city’s street food culture during a food-and-walking tour, market visit, or cooking class. If you’re into history, make time for a visit to the Mayan World Museum.

Day 1: Night

Combine a show at the Peon Theater with traditional Yucatecan fare by opting for a dinner-and-show package. Alternatively, tour the city’s many cantinas during a guided tour of Mérida’s most interesting options. Beer and bar snacks are typically included.

Day 2: Morning

No trip to Merida would be complete without visiting some Mayan ruins. Choose between day trips that visit Chichen Itza, Uxmal, or Dzibilchaltun—if you can’t decide, some excursions include stops at more than one archaeological site.

Day 2: Afternoon

If you’re not interested in archaeology, opt instead for tour of Celestun, a national parks home to a flamboyance of pink flamingos. Or, get more adventurous still with a cenote snorkeling experience.

Day 2: Night

After a busy day, stop by one of the city’s main squares to catch a game of pok ta pok (a traditional Mayan ball game), live dancing, or a musical performance. There’s an open-air concert, production, or show held each night, though the location varies. Then, relax in the Parque Santa Lucia and snack on a marquesita (rolled and stuffed crispy crepe).
