Why We Recommend Living in Merida

Have you been wondering what living in Merida is like?

We have clients from all over the world who either retire in Mexico or move to Mexico with their young families. And today we will guide you through Merida, where we will show you some great options where you could live in Centro (or downtown), Altabrisa, or the North residential areas.

Merida is the capital city of the state of Yucatán. Located in the southeastern part of Mexico. Here you will find many colonial-era buildings, including the Casa de Montejo and the cathedral.

Mérida is the safest city in Mexico and the second safest city in all of America. With an average of 300 days of sunshine per year and a cost of living that’s 12% lower than the national average, Merida may be the perfect place to live or retire in Mexico.

Everything in centro is within walking distance; shops, restaurants, and bars.

In this video, we share some rental examples, neighborhoods we recommend and more!
