  • Bar San Juan

    Bar San Juan

    Location:  Calles 67A and 64, Merida We had fought the crowd to see the Hanal Pixanactivities and were in desperate need of a drink and a restroom.  Bar San Juan’s tall doors had intrigued me the day prior, so in we went.  Inside the old building, the 20 foot ceilings had exterior wooden beams picketing […]

    Location: Calle 68 #470  corner of Calle 55, Merida Hours: 8:30-2:00 LA68, Casa de Cultura Elena Poniatowska, was around the corner from our hotel, Ko’ox Art 57.  One night Leroy ran out to grab some beer for us from CerveFrió Cervellama Kukulkan and decided to check it out.  He walked in and looked around but […]

  • Los Trompos Restaurant

    Location:  Corner of Calle 59 and Calle 60, Merida, by Hidalgo Park Hours: 18:00-24:00 Upon entering Los Trompos Restaurant you are quick to notice its modernity.  It is definitely a chain restaurant, like a Mexican Applebee or Chili’s.  It was packed when we arrived, so we took the only table available next to the cashier’s […]

  • La Chaya Maya Restaurant

    I had read the reviews on Trip Advisor of the often loved La Chaya Maya in Merida before we left.  I also deciphered that it was definitely, regardless of authenticity, a tourist spot because it was one of the very few restaurants noted on all the Merida maps.  We had initially decided there were enough […]

  • Tacos “El Guero” Comida Corrida

    We were hungry by the time the flight had landed. By the time we got through customs, got transported to the rental car agency, picked up our rental car, found a bank to exchange money, got gas and stopped at a 7-11 for a drink we were starving.  We were searching for the closest, fastest […]

  • Taqueria Viki

    We left Valladolid on Valentine’s Day, which they do not celebrate or at least it was not made very public if they did or perhaps it was foreshadowed by Carnival.   On our way out on MX295, following the route of the churches, just at the edge of Valladolid we discovered a divine roadside stand, Taqueria Viky.  The […]

  • Las Campanas Restaurant

    Las Campanas (The Bells) Restaurant sits across from el zocolo in el centro, it is in the center of all the action which is quite visible from some of the tables.  Despite its “touristy” spot its food, ambience and clientele are far from it.  Las Campanas (The Bells) offers a variety of local Maya cuisine […]
