As the capital of Yucatan, Merida has preserved a colonial charm over the years for its visitors. The city has also upheld some great old traditions, which have become an excellent source of attraction for international visitors. This historical town was established in 1542 by the Spanish conquistadors, who left a lot of history in the town. The city of Merida is known for being Yucatan’s commercial and cultural hub. The charm of this city relies on its vintage appeal, the mix of colonial and modern architecture, the richness of its historical places, and the culture make Merida a must to visit.
