It’s a chance to reconnect with the culinary gems that make Mérida unique. But for those travelers who have yet to experience our gastronomic wonders, let us extend a warm welcome and a friendly piece of advice: be prepared for a delightful challenge.


However, a word to the wise for our traveling friends: while the Mérida Restaurant Week is a glorious time to explore our town’s dining scene, it’s also a time when reservations become hot commodities. As locals flock to their favorite spots and visitors seek to experience our culinary treasures, you may encounter a tad more hustle and bustle than usual. So, our gentle suggestion is to call ahead and secure your reservation, and keep in mind that some restaurants may be operating beyond capacity.
