Mérida's Fair

What luck! I found myself in Mérida during the annual fair (held just outside of town), so went there with Wes, an English dude from my hostel. Honestly it wasn't really that different from K-Days, the Ex or the Stampede. Well, there were subtleties. For starters, the rides had more rust. ...

A Couple of Days in Merida

Nov 18 It´s Wednesday and we find ourselves on a hot, stuffy 2nd class bus working our way to Merida- the capital of the the Yucatan. Merida has a sizable population of 700,000 and is full of historical buildings painted in pretty pastels. As our bus arrived into the city, we were able to take...

Independence Day in Merida

We came to Merida Early in the morning at about 5 o'clock not having any idea where to go or what to do, so the first thing we did was stay at the bus station for about 1 hour (that i spent sleeping). then Steffi woke me up so we could meet up with a German couple that she had seen getting of a...

Unos dias por Yucatan

Le llaman "la ciudad blanca", todo casas bajitas y bien blancas. Por la mañana he ido a unos cenotes (cavernas con agua), formados por erupciones de lava hace mas de 5 millones años que con la erosion se abren y se descubren. Estos que he visitado estan en Cuzamá, un pueblito a 30 kms de Merida....

Last day in Merida

Today was Em´s B-day. It was a pretty low key day. We had planned on going to Progresso but found out from these travellers we had met at our hotel from Chile that is wasn´t worth the trip. We took their advice. They gave us an alternate plan to go check out the Cenotes (big holes created by...

My Birthday Dinner

Em took me to a nice little restaurant a couple hours after the tour. There was a live band and a nice atmosphere with a table looking out onto the street. The food was great but to much for us to finish. We basically had a huge plate of meat with different sauces some onion and lettuce which...

What a long travel day

Today is a travel day to Merida. Only about 350 km from Cancun but by bus it took a long time. We ended up getting a later start than we had hoped for but figured we would still get to Merida before sunset. We were able to catch the 12:00pm bus from Cancun. The sales guy had asked if we want...

Winter in the tropics

Luz en Yucatan on Calle 55, in between Calle 60 and Calle 62. From the outside there isn´t much to see--just a little plaque mounted on an adobe wall reading "Luz en Yucatan."
