Merida ruins

by jblodge

What is the best way to get from Merida to Chichen Itza? Are there private individuals one can hire?
What is the best way to get from the airport into town?

The best way to get from the airport to town is take a taxi. There's a service right as you exit the airport. You purchase a ticket, and the drivers are there waiting.

I think the best way to go to Chichen Itza from Merida is to rent a car. There are several car rental places down on Calle 60 a couple of blocks south of the main zocalo. An economy car with insurance will run you about $400MX ($38US) a day. There are several buses or tours guides you can take, but then your on their schedule and not your own.

Feliz viaje,

I would take the public bus. It stops right outside the ruins, and if you travel with luggage you can store it at the entrance.

You can also opt to take a tour from Merida to Chichen Itza - no driving hassles and the chance to see more, such as the Cenote Ik Kil - . Check out our article on tours from Merida at

There are many ways to get to Chichen from Merida. If you'd like a tour once you get to the ruins, (otherwise how do you know what you're looking at?) It's a better deal to take an organized trip from Merida to Chichen. I've done this tour before and it was great, it includes transportation, lunch and a guided tour of the ruins in English. If you get to Chichen and book a tour in English it's going to cost you around $65USD, plus your entrance fee of $15, and lunch/snacks, bus fare, etc. If you're traveling alone or in a group of 2 or 3 its cheaper to do a pre arranged tour. This one is $50USD and includes everything I mentioned above.

Travel Tips for Mérida


by nepalgoods

The Spaniard Francisco de Montejo founded Merida on January 6, 1542. When the Spaniards arrived, Merida was a large Mayan city known as T'ho, situated on what is now the Main Plaza. It was conquered by the Spaniards, who dismantled all the pyramids and used the huge stones as the foundation for the Cathedral of San Idelfonso (1556-1599), the oldest cathedral on the American continent.

Ruins at Oxkintok, day trip from Merida

by poortrekkers

After the hordes at Chichen Itza, and Uxmal, it was delightful to wander around these ruins WITHOUT ANOTHER SOUL AROUND! We could climb many of the pyramids and appreciate the great views they gave us of the Mayan "alps". Oxkintok is smaller and very manageable site with a lot to see. However, it is lacking the detail and intricacies of the carving that you see at the Puuc Route ruin site. This was an easy day trip from Merida.

Taxis in Mérida are pricey. However, there are several new companies that are using meters. You can identify them by the taximetro sign on the roof of the car. If you stay at a hotel, there will most likely be a list of prices. If you not go on a metered taxi, make sure you agree on the price before you get in the car ... good luck! Tip: the less gringo you look, the better ;-)

Palacio de Gobierno

by stamporama

Aside from the Macay art gallery, you could also visit the governor's palace and view the giant murals on display on the walls of both floors plus the main hall facing the zocalo. The murals depict a few scenes of the Spanish conquest of the Yucatan and the subjugation of the Mayans. There is even one mural that shows how a Mayan rebel leader was tortured with branding irons before he was killed.

Admission is FREE.

San Ildefonso Cathedral

by karenincalifornia

The beautiful San Ildefonso Cathedral is the centerpiece of Merida. This magnificent cathedral is located on the east side of the Plaza Grande. Building of the church began in 1561 on the site of a Mayan temple and was completed during the 16th century. Some of the stones used in building the church were from the Mayan temple and contained Mayan carvings.

The interior is magnificent in its size, if astere. Medieval and Moorish influences are see throughout.
