If you're in Barrio Santiago, the fresh market (Mercado Santiago) is fantastic. You can buy fresh meat, vegetables, fruit and flowers. Some evenings there's live music and dancing in the park as well.

We visited this park to get some fresh fruit and I noticed the Church was open so I went inside to see it and it was amazing!

This is a beautiful park to people watch, eat from lots of small shops and listen to great local bands.

We stayed a block away from Parque Santiago and it was great to have nearby for a variety of reasons: First, the produce market, which had basics for us. Second, for the great launchers around the market, for having salbutes, panuchos and a jamaica. Third,...More

We visited this spot on our first evening, as it was close to our hotel and my friend has difficulty walking far. It was very crowded with mainly local people, apparently enjoying themselves. We found a very uncomfortable seat, had a frankly horrible meal from...More

Santiago is at the heart of Merida: the market may be small, but you can find most fresh foods there, and some of the loncherias (food joints) are really very good, for example La Lupita (second row) which is open for breakfast and lunch only....More
