Merida has open markets, street festivals and live music and entertainment at different neighbourhood parks every night of the week. On weekends, visitors can try salsa dancing or enjoy their dinner and music right on the streets, where some areas of el centro are blocked off from local traffic. For the romantics, there are horse and buggy rides down the beautiful and historic Paseo Montejo, or for those who choose to enjoy the sights on their own steam, bicycle rentals. Merida has excellent restaurants, theatres, museums, and art galleries, all within walking distance in el centro.
