In any tropical climate, mosquitoes can run rampant. Notably, the weather in Mérida contributes to the mosquito population especially during the rainy season in September. Now, I have to confess. There are two things I hate most in this world: 1) mosquitoes AND 2) heat!

But, the magic of Mérida is so strong that I’ve learned ways to cope with both of these annoyances. When asking other Facebook groups, “What is the best mosquito repellent in Mérida?”, you’ll get a variety of answers. You may also need something for small children or babies, as mosquitoes do not discriminate.

I highly recommend keeping a few choices with you at all times. I do find that in the evenings the mosquitoes become worse around dusk. We also have no-seeums which are super pesky. Then during other times of the year, we have striped black and white mosquitoes that I refer to as small zebras. They are the worst.

But, don’t worry! You are not alone in defending your tender skin from bites – we are all in this together.

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.

I hope this site gives you inspiration, insight and answers to all things Mérida!
