Fodor's Expert Review Parque Santa Lucía

Mérida City Park

This park at Calles 60 and 55 is lined with popular, if a bit touristy, restaurants and draws crowds with its Thursday-night music and dance performances (shows start at 9, but come early if you want to sit close to the performers). On Sunday, couples also come to dance to a live band, and enjoy food from carts set up in the plaza and at its restaurants with outdoor seating. The small church opposite the park dates to 1575 and was built as a place of worship for the Maya, who weren't allowed to worship at just any Mérida temple.
