We provide a local map of Merida and you’ll be able to find many resources in many of the magazines that you’ll find at the house.
Probably one of the best ways to get a quick overview of Merida is to jump on the Turibus. Turibus is similar to the buses used in London, Madrid, New York and Mexico City. These buses are a great way to see Merida in an hour-ish. Or, you can use it to visit five designated stops around the city on your own time/schedule. It’s more of a “get on and get off” option where you can get off at the designated stops, visit the area for almost as long as you want, then simply get back on and continue the route.
You can catch the Turibus at the North part of town. The tour guide or host/hostess on the bus will mention 33 different sights, complete with explanations and details. These sites include famous homes and buildings, parks, churches, government buildings and shopping areas. They will also give you a useful coupon booklet, and are available to answer any questions that you may have about Mérida.
The trip ends back where it started at the hotels Hyatt, Holiday Inn and Fiesta Americana. The cost for one ticket is $100 pesos Monday to Friday and $115 pesos on the weekend and holidays. There is also a 2-day and 3-day price. For more information call (999) 946 2424 or visit www.turibus.com.mx
Another Turbus runs out of Santa Lucia Park at the Southwest corner of Calle 60 and Calle 55. The bus leaves at 10:00am, 1:00pm, 4:00pm and 7:00pm daily and the tour lasts about 1.5 hours at a cost of approximately $75 Pesos per person or approximately $6 US dollars.
