The colonial era architecture combined with the rich Mayan heritage give Merida a distinction all its own. In fact, the Cathedral of San Ildefonso was founded with massive stones taken directly from the Mayan pyramids. Despite all this, Merida is about more than just looking back in time. It’s a driveable distance from Cancun, and only 20 minutes from the beach. A simple day trip can bring you the best of both worlds, old and new.
