Getting to know Merida

Since the Spanish conquest, Mérida has been the cultural capital of the Yucatan peninsula. At times provincial, at times cosmopolitan, it is a town steeped in colonial history, with narrow streets, broad central plazas and the region’s best museums. It is known as La Ciudad Blanca, the white city, and boasts the oldest cathedral on the American mainland, built between 1562 and 1598.

Our All-inclusive Visit

Victory guests will spend two days in Mérida, allowing them to explore the historical sights, museums and parks at a relaxed pace. While staying in Mérida, we will take day trips to a famous Hacienda, several archeological sites, and hear presentations on Mexican history and art.

More about Merida…

Though originally settled by the Maya, the site of Mérida was abandoned by the time the Spanish arrived in 1540. It was here that Francisco de Montejo el Sobrino fought back a joint assault by Mayan chiefs in the bloodiest battle of the conquest of the Yucatan. Mérida was subsequently named the capital of the new Spanish colony.
