We took a carriage ride (calesa) from the Plaza Grande down the Paseo de Montejo and back. It took about 45 minutes and was 350 pesos for four people including tip. (Tip: negotiate the time, route and price before you get in.) Mixed feelings about the experience. The carriage driver didn't speak English but gave us a verbal tour anyway,... More

Do this you will not be disappointed. An easy stroll under the shade of ancient trees to see people and grand homes of the ruling elite during the henniquine hey day. If you are in Merida on Sunday, it is bike, skateboard and walk in the street day. Fun for all ages. Paz.

Paseo de Montejo was inspired by the grand avenue in France, albeit on a minor scale. Build with the money from the thriving sisal trade, many of the "green gold" barons built splendid mansions along it. Though many were demolished in the sixties to make way for "modernity", many survivrd and are well worth the visit, Quinta Montes Molina for... More

We went twice. It is a nice place to walk around in the evenings. There are usually some kids dancing and other things to see. Been I. México 25 years and found it interesting. It is very different for the north and central parts of the country.

Upscale and trendy area of the city. The "well to do" live in this area. Beautiful buildings, more French than Spanish influence I think.

It is always a challenge to find somewhere to run while on vacation especially in a foreign country. This road is close enough to the historical city center that you can run from there. Most of the sidewalks are so narrow but not the Paseo. Lots of beautiful mansions to run by. Negatives are you must watch your footing as... More

A very pleasant avenue with some grand old colonial houses and a wide boulevard style street. Always an opportunity to sit and watch the world go by in one of the many bars along the way.
