Gay Mérida Mérida Travel Guide Travel Guides > Merida > Gay Mérida Mérida Curation by Yasmina Rodríguez, words by Lauma BreezeYucatan’s White City has been built from the ruins of an ancient Mayan world to become an enigmatic capital with a strong pulse. From the money-drenched mansions and palaces of Paseo Montejo and Plaza Grande to the modest yet boldly-coloured barrios, Merida is emblazoned with some of Mexico’s finest colonial architecture. Mixed with an affinity for Mexicana art and design and an innate ability to show you a good time, this part of the country will soon have you hooked on its excitable atmosphere. Meanwhile, an alternate universe lies just beyond the city limits. One where lush tropical forests rule supreme amongst sapphire blue cenotes and ancient Mayan ruins like Chichen Itza while sleepy beaches lie along nearby shores. Explore the city’s cultural highlights and epic gay scene from the comfort of your very own hacienda with the help of our Merida guide. Feel like getting away?
