Where you’ll be

Centro, Yucatán, Mexico

Here are a few of our favorite addresses in town:

Restaurants and bars

Mercado 60: lively street-food market-inspired hotspot featuring a host of food stalls dishing up everything from pizza to ramen noodles to Oaxacan tortillas, all in a fun open-air setting with live music (Closed Mondays)
Calle 60, #461, Centro

Dadaumpa: casual rustic Italian joint serving homemade pastas, pizza and salads
Calle 55 #522, between 64 & 66, Centro

Escargot Rustico: cafe and bakery in Santiago known for its French-style breads, baguettes, paninis and Chiapas coffee
Calle 68, between 57 & 59, Centro

La Chaya Maya: considered the best traditional Yucatecan food in the city. There's also a new location, opposite Santa Lucia square, on Calle 57.
Calle 62 x 57, Centro

Oliva Enoteca: fantastic upscale Italian bistro with stylish ambience, serving home-made pasta and a great wine list.
Calle 47, at the corner of Calle 54, Centro

Bistro Cultural: French bistro open all day serving decent coffee, excellent pastries and lunch dishes like quiches. Calle 66, between 43 & 45

La Tratto: Popular Italian pizzeria from the Trotter family, who run several bistros around town.
Santa Lucia Park, Centro, Calle 60 at 55

Apoala: Also in Santa Lucia Park, this is an upscale restaurant serving Oaxacan and Yucatecan dishes - beautiful food and atmosphere and the wine list is good.

Roses y Xocolate: Hot pink design hotel on Paseo Montejo with an excellent and very sophisticated restaurant - not cheap but worth it for a big night out.
Paseo de Montejo 480, at Calle 41

La Negrita: Buzzy new-age cantina that attracts an artsy hipster crowd. Loud and fun with great cocktails and yummy botanas (bar snacks.)
Calle 49, near 62

Panchos: Fun restaurant and bar in Centro, just near the main square, serving Mexican and international dishes in a romantic garden setting. Drop by for happy hour – every day from 6-8pm for two-for-one margaritas!
Calle 59, between 60 & 62

Hennessy’s: A pub owned by two Irish expats, good for Irish comfort food (we recommend the fish and chips and the Thai-style chicken curry) and fun atmosphere on weekends, when there’s often live music.
Paseo Montejo, #486A, between 41 and 43.

Casa Lecanda: This beautiful hotel is a lovely place for cocktails, with a leafy courtyard and noteworthy architecture and design. It's recommended that guests call before visiting though as they sometimes have private events or are full with in-house guests.
Calle 47, between 54 and 56

Pola: excellent handmade ice-creams and gelatos, with new flavors each week
Calle 55, between 62 & 64

Pita: fresh, authentic Middle Eastern food, right near Santa Lucia square
Calle 55, #496 between 58 & 60, Centro

Also be sure to sample street food-style local dishes at the budget food stalls outside the markets (located in most of the major squares, including Santiago and Santa Ana) – look for the plastic chairs and hand-painted signs. Try local favorites like panuchos, salbutes and cochinita pibil (roasted pork).

The Mérida English Language Library

Located just around the corner, this library and meeting place is a real touchstone for expat locals, who go to borrow movies, socialize and of course browse books and other resources on Maya and Yucatan culture. The library also runs house and garden tours, along with writers’ workshops and cross-cultural conversation nights.
Calle 53, between 66 and 68.

Santiago Square

A few blocks south of the house you’ll find Santiago square, with its beautiful church, leafy open spaces and covered market. The market is open every day in the mornings and is a great place to get your fresh fruits and vegetables. Prices are reasonable and the quality is always high. There’s also a supermarket opposite the square called Super Aki where you can stock up on canned goods and basic items: the fresh produce section is pretty sub-par, but it’s the closest place for non-perishable supermarket items and alcohol, with a small selection of wine, beer and spirits. On Tuesdays nights, the square hosts an open-air traditional dance night with a big band, which can be a lot of fun to observe or take part in!

Biking on Sundays

Every Sunday, from 8am until noon, the city closes off the entirety of Calle 60 and Paseo Montejo to traffic, and everyone gets out on their bicycles to cruise around without the hindrance of buses and cars. You can rent bikes by the hour from the southern end of Paseo Montejo – you’ll see all the bikes out the front once you pass the big roundabout.
