Every Sunday morning, Paseo de Montejo in Merida closes off one side to traffic so that residents and visitors can enjoy rollerblading, biking and dog walking along the tree-lined avenue. It really is a beautiful thing to see with tons of kids, adults and doggies going up and down this street, right by the historic mansions.

On our weekend in Merida, Jorge and I spent Sunday morning at a Starbucks on Paseo de Montejo watching the world go by!

Sunday Morning Coffee on Paseo de Montejo

 

The Holiday Inn where Jorge and I stayed on our trip to Merida is located on the famous Paseo de Montejo, a tree-lined avenue just north of El Centro. Paseo de Montejo has beautiful monuments, great bars and even a McDonalds, but it’s best known for its historic mansions, mostly from the 19th century. I took pics of a few of them to share with you guys:

The Anthropology Museum

A beautiful blue house located 1 block off Paseo de Montejo

I loved the gate on this house, 2 blocks from Paseo de Montejo

Some of the smaller mansions reminded me of wedding cakes!

A pink mansion with the biggest yard I've ever seen, about 2 blocks off Paseo de Montejo

The twin Camara Houses on Paseo de Montejo

We thought it was strange that many of these homes are now owned by Mexican insurance and cell phone companies! So long as they continue to preserve the mansions, that’s ok with me. 🙂
