This area is a must, has magnificent building which are well kept. Shows the rich side of Merida as well as the historic park. Better if wlaked and can be done with a tour. I will highly recommend the Gua-Gua tour for it and more of Merida.

You can take a very nice walk through this avenue, take a sorbete (ice-cream) and have a very nice talk in a very relax atmosphere. It is worth the visit

Walking down Paseo de Montejo is always a treat. The Starbucks near the corner with Colon is always busy. Lots of expats but most stay to themselves. Another popular expat hangout is Hennessey's bar. A bit pricey but the beer is always really cold. A feast for the eyes of lovers of architecture.

Try La Trattoria for Italian Food ! Outstanding ! Great Pasta and Pizza as well. Many different sauces available for your pasta dishes. My favorte one was the salsa al diabola. ( Spicy red sauce ) I am sure you'll love your visit at this place.

Beautiful avenue, certainly worthwhile to visit at night when there is a lot of led light around the trees (in december). On both sides of this avenue beautiful palaces and mansions are built. It contains important monuments like the Monumento a la Patria, carved by the Colombian artist Rómulo Rozo, a little bit further the statue of the poet Gusto... More

This is the main road through the city. It goes from one end to the other. You will see beautiful mansions, both restored and waiting to be restored. Very interesting

But dead during the day. A grand avenue which comes alive at night. Sidewalk Cafés bars and a bunch of up scale restaurants

The walk was very boring, there are a couple of nice mansions but nothing that desserves a 30min walk bellow the sun, at the beginning of the street are the 2 nicest mentions, I would no do again nor do I recommend to waste time walking around the street. We have not tried any restaurant or breakfast around there that... More
