Merida, the capital of the state of Yucatan, totally lived up to the hype I’d heard — namely, that it was such a lovely and remarkable colonial town. I had a chance to visit in June, 2011. Merida is not only a fun-loving city of over a million Yucatecans who love to eat and dance in the streets, it is also one of the best bases for exploring the Yucatan Peninsula’s Mundo Maya, with day trips galore to archeological sites, caves, and haciendas. Enjoy these shots.
