Mérida is one of Mexico’s most beautiful and charming destinations—a city large enough to offer all the amenities of a large urban center but small enough to be friendly and welcoming to visitors. It is known for its excellent universities and hospitals, its proximity to beaches and impressive ruins, its extraordinary cuisine, and its splendid fusion of colonial Hispanic and Mayan cultures. The people of the Yucatán Peninsula pride themselves on maintaining a unique identity, distinct from any other in Mexico or Latin America. Mérida is widely acknowledged to be one of the safest cities in the country and is home not only to a Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint mission but to a beautiful temple, conveniently located downtown.
