“La Negrita is one of the most popular bars in town for its ambience; you truly feel the Latin vibes oozing from every aspect of this place. Great music, cheap drinks and the ocassional sighting of national and international artists. A local once told me, "if you didn't go to La Negrita, you didn't go to Mérida." It gets busy in the evenings so consider arriving early. Closes at 10pm every day.”
