There is loads to do in the park - but may favorite is to people watch! I've actually seen a 'grandmother' sit down a young couple (maybe 15 or 16) in the courting chairs and chaperone the visit. What a lovely tradition! On Thursday there...More

Nice, relatively quiet park near the center of town. There are several restaurants around the square and it doesn’t have too many street vendors. The are some big trees offering shade with lots of seating including the classic Yucatecan white two-seaters that face each other.

Love this park in the heart of Merida's Centro. Something always going on here, music, dance, art, etc. Of course I had to be in Merida on Thursday to enjoy the Serenata Yucateca which I love and met some very nice people watching it too.

I have been to this plaza many times, for many reasons, at different hours, it is always nice. Sunday morning live music and shopping, Thursday evening “serenata”, any day dining... You must go and see for yourself.
