Zócalo

Zócalo Review

Méridians traditionally refer to this main square as the Plaza de la Independencia, or the Plaza Principal. Whichever name you prefer, it's a good spot to start a tour of the city, watch dance performances, listen to music, or chill in the shade of a laurel tree when the day gets too hot. The plaza was laid out in 1542 on the ruins of T'hó, the Mayan city demolished to make way for Mérida, and is still the focal point around which the most important public buildings cluster. Confidenciales (S-shape benches) invite intimate tête-à-têtes, and lampposts keep the park beautifully illuminated at night.
