VIDEO – To flush or not to flush toilet paper in Mérida . . . THAT is the question. The short answer is NO. However, you will find a few locations around the city where you can flush. But, that’s the exception not the rule. Watch this video to learn more.

 

When I told my friends and family I was moving to Mexico, they asked me, “Uh, aren’t there some places where you can’t flush toilet paper? Is Mérida one of those places?” Not skipping a beat, I answered with, “Yes, it’s one of THOSE places and, of course, it won’t bother me.” Really, it’s just something you get used to – one of the many changes of moving to a foreign country.

Naturally, there are ways to make the process, well . . . how do I say, less messy? And, it’s really not as bad as you imagine. Like I mentioned before, there are a few places where you can flush toilet paper in Mérida – just look for the signs. Costco is one of the locations.
However, please do not assume because it is a new, newish, or remodeled place, you can flush. How will you know? There are signs posted stating whether you can flush or not OR there are large trash cans available. Large trash cans indicate that flushing is not allowed.
Good luck!
