Merida Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

The capital of the state of Yucatán, Merida is an interesting off-the-beaten-track destination. Notable for its colonial architecture and distinct culture, Merida can also serve as a base for exploring the rest of the Yucatán Peninsula with its beautiful beaches, tropical forests, and ancient sites. These are three of the most interesting attractions in and around Merida:

  • Architecture. Merida is home to a large number of notable colonial buildings, making the architecture one of the highlights of the city. These include the San Ildefonso Cathedral which is the oldest in Mexico, the 16th century Montejo Palace, and the much more recent, but equally eye-pleasing Governor’s Palace. Many of the city’s architectural landmarks can be found in and around the Plaza Grande, the main square of Merida.
  • Museums. Merida’s buildings are not only nice to look at, many of them also host interesting museums. These include the Contemporary Art Museum of Yucatán (or MUSAY), Merida City Gallery, Yucatán Music Museum, Regional Anthropology Museum, and Folk Art Museum. Some of the museums have bilingual exhibitions, and occasionally English guides are available — you should inquire about their availability at the entrance.
  • Chichen Itza. Located only about a 90-minute drive southwest of Merida is Chichen Itza, one of the most famous Mayan sites in Mexico. The site’s highlights include the Pyramid of Kukulcan or El Castillo, the Interior Temple, and the Jaguar Temple. Although not building as magnificent sites as before, the Mayan culture survives in the area and can be explored in the surrounding villages.

Popular one-way rentals

  • Cancun (320 km / 199 mi). The party capital of Mexico is known for its stunning beaches and crazy nightlife, and offers both in abundance. But with a rental car, you can do even more like visiting the nearby tropical jungle or exploring the less-crowded coastal spots outside the city.
  • Playa del Carmen (305 km / 189 mi). Also a beach destination, but with a more relaxed vibe, Playa del Carmen offers the idyllic holiday on the Caribbean. There are plenty of opportunities to dive, snorkel, or just enjoy the sun and sea.
  • Campeche (169 km / 105 mi). Although not as popular as some other Mexican holiday destinations, the city of Campeche has plenty to offer. Travelers love its colorful and well-preserved city center, impressive botanical gardens, and the nearby ruins left by the Mayan civilization.
  • Chetumal (400 km / 248 mi). Located right on the border with neighboring Belize, the city of Chetumal has its fair share of interesting attractions. These include the Museum of Mayan Culture, Fine Arts Cultural Center, diving opportunities in the nearby Caribbean reefs, and a number of well-preserved archaeological sites.

A beautifully city but we'll worth hiring a car to visit some important places like Uxmal and a working Henecan Hacienda.
