All About Mérida

After spending countless hours speaking to locals, expats, travelers, business owners and scouring social media, I started compiling all the information on my website, other guides I’ve published and what you’ll find here.

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 this project is evident in the information you’ll find here.

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. I started to provide answers to all kinds of questions, including helpful recommendations. Dedicating countless hours investigating, experiencing, and researching, Angel and I made it our mission to become Ambassadors of Mérida.

As of January 1, 2023, I’ve published 150 articles about Mérida on my website and others. I’ve also been interviewed numerous times and am an expert resource for U.S. companies researching moving their businesses here. I encourage you to be curious, to explore, and to keep your mind open to anything that can happen along your journey.

With your complimentary consultation call, I will suggest things to do, see, research, and explore during this tour. Without a doubt, one of the most enchanting things about this magical city is the neighborhoods. Each has their own unique personality. Each neighborhood has a distinctive feeling, flavor, and flair. We will tour Centro and then customize your tour based on your needs/wants.
