3/7/2010
Overall rating: 8

Yucatán, Mexico has an area of 38,402 sq km and a population of about 1,818,900. Its capital is Mérida.

Yucatan shares its boundaries with the Mexican states of Quintana Roo and Campeche and is bounded by the Gulf of Mexico to the north. The topography is dominated by its coastline along with a vast landscape of savannah-land.

Apart from a number of Spaniards and Creoles, the population of the state of Yucatán consists mainly of Maya Indians and Mestizos (mixed indigenous and foreign ancestry).

Merida 10
Hotel Zamna, Santiago. Centro. Great little Hotel. Fantastic Breakfasts and each month they do a great theme night with a wonderful Dinner for $150 pesos. Los Vegas on Calle 63 for great Mexican food at good prices. $125 pesos Bus tour around Merida. a must do. Entertainment on every night free in Merida. Sunday there is a huge market in the main square where you can also buy some great crafts from all over the state. Local buses are cheap and safe.

Merida 8
Merida is an enjoyable, educational, energetic and safe place to visit and live. It can be very hot the last part of April, all of May and the beginning of June before the rainy season begins. "Rainy season" is a little less hot, temperature-wise, and the rains usually pass quickly. Merida is one of the safest cities in Mexico. The Mayan influence is everywhere, which makes the area special.
