Merida Mexico Travel: A Locals’ Guide to the Cultural Capital of the Yucatan!

About Me

Hi there! My name is Shelley and this is my Merida Blog…

I’m a former Miami travel magazine editor who ditched the office for the world! I spent a year as a solo female traveler in Mexico (check out my other site, Travel Mexico Solo) before ultimately settling down in Merida in July 2019.

I started this website to help travelers like you plan the most epic Merida trip.

Known as the Safest City in Mexico and the Culture Capital of the Yucatan Peninsula, Merida provides a totally different experience to nearby Cancun and Tulum. Visitors seeking amazing food, beautiful nature and rich Mayan culture will fall in love with Merida — just like I did!

For the discerning traveler, who wants to live, eat and breathe the real Mexico, Merida is the perfect place for you.
