Your flight will arrive at Manuel Crescencio Rej�n International Airport, which is located just south of downtown.

Founded in 1542, Merida is a fascinating blend of traditional Mayan, Spanish, and British influences. The Mayapan Mayan ruins give you a glimpse into the ancient culture that once thrived near where Merida stands today, while the Merida Cathedral, Palacio Municipal, and Plaza de Armas show off the architecture and culture of the colonial era. Modern history is also on display, particularly at the MACAY, the city�s contemporary art museum. Average highs in Merida stay in the 80s and 90s all year, so outdoor activities are always popular. Merida is at its most crowded during the November-to-January period, so it is better to visit between September and October when prices are lower. Merida experiences lower levels of humidity during this time as well. Hurricane season runs from June through November, so keep an eye on weather reports if you plan your vacation during these months.
Whether you plan to stay in Merida for a while or simply use it as a jumping-off point for a cross-country Mexican adventure, rely on Orbitz.com to get great rates on hotel accommodations, vacation packages, and flights to Merida.
