We also offer our unique Living Essentials Package during your experience to help you with daily necessities & things that can help during your stay.
You will feel confident & secure knowing you have these systems in place to help you when you return to Mérida:
ALTERNATIVE TRANSPORTATION PLATFORMS
In addition to Uber, there are 2 popular transportation platforms: DiDi & InDriver.
DiDi is similar to Uber while InDriver needs more explanation. Drivers get to “bid” on your rate & you get to choose your driver.
We show you how both of these platforms work, local tips & tricks & how to make the most of your transportation while here.
Rappi is a delivery service that delivers anything & everything, literally! From groceries to ice to wine or beer to documents & more, you’ll find Rappi is a new necessity in your life.
We show you how to set up the app & use Rappi to your advantage.
You’ll receive a short questionaire so our realtor can show you a few houses or apartments within your parameters.
FARMACIAS DEL AHORRO
Farmacias del Ahorro is one of the best pharmacies in Mérida.
They have an app where you can check prices & availability of medications.
They also offer free delivery service (order on the app & have delivered to your house).
We show you how to set up the app & use a variety of searches.
Oxxo is the Mexican equivalent of 7-11. Oxxo is a great convenience store where you’ll find basic necessities at the same price as in the grocery store (not marked up dramatically like the U.S.).
Oxxo also accepts payment for Amazon, utilities, cell phone minutes, bank transfers & more.
We show you how to use Oxxo for a variety of payment types.
Communication is another challenging thing, at times. You’ll find that WhatsApp is the most common form of communication. Generally, locals in Mérida do not use email. Therefore, if you send an email to a local here, you need to call to make sure they received the email.
Facebook Messenger is probably the next most popular form of communication. We show you how to set up & use WhatsApp & advise on how to communicate with people, restaurants, shops & more.
