Romantic Merida

Published Date Author: , December 29th, 2012

People come to Merida for the historic architecture, the museums, galleries, and Mayan ruins sites. But Merida is also a very romantic destination. There are so many great ways to show your partner how you feel while visiting Merida. Here are a few suggestions.
1) Drive him to Celestun where you can lounge in a boat and while away the afternoon staring in awe at thousands of pink flamingoes. Then walk the backcountry boardwalk and discover new birds and aquatic animals while discovering new things about each other.
2) Rent bikes and ride from downtown Valladolid to the twin cenotes. Swim in both and then enjoy a leisurely lunch before your return ride as the sun sets behind you.
3) Walk up Paseo Montejo, the “Champs Elysees” of Merida. Sit in one of the many “lovers” chairs placed on the boulevard, then enjoy ice cream from one of the local stores.
4) Go on a “Frida” hunt. Try to find artwork by and about Frida Kahlo. There is even a restaurant dedicated to the great Mexican artist named, naturally, Frida’s.
5) Indulge her in her love of good food. Take her to one of the many “Cocina Economicas” in the city where you both will enjoy the best Yucateca food prepared by women who know their way around a kitchen.
6) Bring out the animal in him by taking him to the zoo. Actually, there are two in Merida, each with their own special appeal.
7) Go shopping and buy each other new wardrobes. From local shops selling handmade linen clothing to local malls offering more traditional wares, Merida has it all sewed up in the clothing line.
8) Buy each other Guayabera shirts, the “Mexican Wedding Shirt”, and then sit in a local café planning your wedding.
9) Carnaval
