I have mixed feelings about this place, BUT it is absolutely gorgeous and despite the negatives, I would go back.
Merida is the capital of Yucatan district and a good point for several day trips in it's close proximity. This is why I decided to use it as a second accommodation in my trip around the Yucatan Peninsula
Did you actually know that pink flamingos are not naturally pink but they become like this based on the food they are eating? Pretty amazing, isn't it?
I am so happy I got to squeeze this into my trip as I loved walking around Uxmal. I can only recommend it if you are in doubt of going or not. Come here early to have the site to yourself. You can hear birds singing, iguanas "waking up" and at times pure silence.
