My family visited the Plaza Grande many times while in Merida. There was always something happening there. It really comes alive at night when performances are being held. And of course there are lots of restaurants and tourist shops in the area.

The plaza is beautiful, lots of shopping, typical guayaberas and blouses.. take Mexican pesos, several businesses don't accept dollars. Merida is cheaper than progreso, Yucatán. Beautiful city, lots of history.. I highly recommend to visit Merida.
