Merida-style Dining and Drinking
While in Merida, why not get a feel of the city's culinary pulse at the Lucas de Galvez Market Merida. Pick fresh tacos, pork, cheese and grilled fish to eat at your house rental. There's often live music, craft beer and complimentary snacks (botanas) at the local cantinas.
Must-try snacks in Merida include salbutes (a fried tortilla with delectable toppings), the citrusy Sopa de Lima soup, and the unusual Pavo en Relleno Negro turkey preparation soaked in a thick, black sauce.
For drinks, settle for mezcal, Mexico's supreme agave liquor. Other recommendations include paloma (a tequila-based cocktail), and the ubiquitous cerveza - a classic Mexican libation made from beer, salsa and tomato juice. A good idea is to stock up at a store and unwind at your house rental.
The year kicks off with Merida Fest, a week-long fiesta of music, dance, art, fireworks and high spirits. Carnival de Merida takes place in February/March and is held at the ambient X'matkuil Fairgrounds. Witness Latin American tradition, floats, dancers and revelers at their best! Vacation rentals and house rentals should be booked in advance.
November is a splendid time to witness the Mayan Dia de Muertos (Day of the Dead). Get out your finest masks and melt in with the crowds as they take to the streets. Merida lights up like a fairyland during Christmas, and Plaza Grande (the main square) is visited for its nativity scene, festive lighting and carol singing. Again, you'll need to book house rentals in advance.
