We'll discover this authentic Mexican city, with its market and cemetery


We'll discover the highlights of Merida one of Mexico's oldest cities but we will also see the areas of Merida that are not very touristic such as the main market of the city and one of the oldest cemeteries of Mexico. Mexican gastronomy was the first protected-by-UNESCO gastronomy in the world (in the world there are only 5 gastronomical traditions that are protected by UNESCO) so as part of discovering the city we will try its gastronomical tradition in one of its typical "taquerias" (street-food-type small restaurants which sell corn tortillas with different kinds of fillings), there we will be able to try and eat as many tacos as you want!
