How hot is it in Mérida?

Sharing is caring!

VIDEO – Even though the temperature and humidity are the same as locations such as Dallas, Houston, Missippi, and New Orleans, the sun feels much hotter here. How hot is it in Mérida? It is a SCORCHER and one of the reasons that keep , the heat is more intense.

Watch this short video to learn more.


When I was stateside, I compared the temperature, humidity, heat index, and more to learn the differences of a climate. Notably, I didn’t have a frame of reference until I arrived in Mérida to know the difference. Of course, in Centro, it is hotter with all the concrete and limited airflow. And, while there are ways to beat the heat, you’ll learn more tips and tricks once you are here.

If you’ve read any of my other articles on Life in Mérida, you know that one of the things I hate most is the heat (the other thing is mosquitoes).  I didn’t understand why it felt so much hotter here. Once I started doing some research (thank you, Google), I finally realized it is because Mérida is close to the Tropic of Cancer.

So, what exactly does that mean? The sun is more intense. The concrete in Centro contributes to the heat. There are ways to stay cool including a pool. This, for me, is a MUST!

Hola, I’m Amy!

My love affair with Mexico began when I worked in the Riviera Maya in 2006. The culture, sense of community, and slower pace was magic. It’s also where I learned about Mérida. When people talk about Mérida, their faces light up like it’s Christmas… it has THAT kind of effect.

After visiting Mérida for the first time in September of 2019, it had the same effect on me. Within 3 months, I sold everything and took a leap of faith to start a new life. The magic of Mérida continues to feed my soul. I finally know what true happiness feels like. Now, I’m intent on sharing what I’ve learned so that you know what it takes to start a new life in Mérida.
