Christmas and New Year’s Eve Feast in Mérida in 2021

Mérida is a foodie city. I think we can all agree that this is true. You can believe me when I tell you that Christmas time is no exception. If you’re visiting at this time of year or even if you live here and just don’t feel like cooking for yourself (like me, for instance), Yucatán Today has you covered. Your options, just like every other day of the year, are wide, and varied, just be sure to reserve in advance as you really don’t want to spend Christmas day eating chips and chocolate from Oxxo (unless, of course, you do!).
