    A carriage ride through the historic downtown district and along the Paseo de Montejo give the visitor a different perspective of the city. The men at the reins frequently are skilled narrators of different stories of their town, making the tour an unforgettable experience.

    A bus tour of the city provides visitors with information about Mérida's most important sites outside the center of town, such as the Paseo de Montejo, a boulevard lined by old mansions reminiscent of the French architecture popular at the turn of the century; catholic temples dating to the Colonial Era; and other historical buildings located throughout the city.
    Tours are given in both Spanish and English, and leave from the Santa Lucia Park (Corner of 55th and 60th St.)

    BUSES AND TAXI - NO RENTAL CARS

    Comfortable 1st Class Bus

    After researching this topic ahead of time and reading what others had to say about it , we decided to skip renting a car, which is expensive in Mexico because of the costly insurance. We started our trip in Cancun, which has buses running along the island & into town every 5 minutes. Upon leaving Cancun, we took a 1st class bus to Chichen Itza, which is half way to Merida. The bus was very comfortable, the trip took 2 hours and cost about $9.00 US. After spending the night and most of the next day at C. Itza, we took a taxi to Merida for $50.00 US.

    In the city of Merida we could walk most places.
    Driving would be a little stressful considering how fast the traffic moves and all the one way streets. When we got tired, we caught a cab.

    The day we went to Progreso, we simply went to Calle 60 and began walking until we saw a bus coming along with Progreso on the front windshield. We put out our arm & the driver stopped for us. The cost was only about $1.40 US.

    When it was time to go back to Cancun to get our flight home, we took Aerocaribe Airlines for $130.00 per person & were in Cancun in 40 minutes. Even with spending on the flight to Cancun, we still saved several hundred dollars over renting a car for the same period of time.
    And we saved on the stress of driving in a foreign country, getting lost, finding parking, etc. We were pleased with our choices.
