Angel Rodriguez and Amy Jones of Life in Merida

You are about to embark on an adventure filled time learning all about the magical city of Mérida. There’s so much to see, do, and experience here – there’s truly something for everyone. 

After spending countless hours speaking to locals, expats, travelers, and business owners and scouring Facebook groups, I started compiling all the information on this website, writing guides, and making videos. My husband, Angel Rodriguez, has lived in Mérida since 1993. He’s an exceptional resource to obtain and verify information; chatting with other locals and other expats and learning all he can about the magical city we live in. As a waiter at La Tratto in Santa Lucia Park for many years, he had the great opportunity to receive feedback from a variety of people. When I wasn’t sure about something, Angel would take the driver’s seat to research more thoroughly. His wisdom, dedication, and persistence is much appreciated. If you know him or have the chance to get to know him, you’ll quickly understand what I’m talking about. His contribution and participation in Life in Mérida™  is evident in the information you’ll find here. If there’s a topic we haven’t covered, send us a message!
