What people are saying about Mérida

Gabriel met me at my hotel. The van was comfortable. After picking up a few other guests, we drove about an hour to the cenotes. We visited three cenotes in total, walking from one to another. One was completely enclosed, one partially enclosed, and the final one open. Afterwards, we ate a meal at the restaurant on-site. There were vegetarian options.

Eduardo, our guide, was knowledgeable and helpful. I would have preferred to leave downtown a bot earlier to enjoy swimming in the cenotes before the crowds. Riding the truck was a fun experience, and the food was tasty. Habanero salsa is a must.
