Introduction

Mérida is the capital of the Mexican state of Yucatán and an increasing tourist destination, besides the larger and more well-known seaside resort Cancún. Although this place was exclusively built for tourists, Mérida has a long history. The city was founded in the sixteenth century by Spanish colonists where once used to be a Mayan settlement. Stones from that old settlement were used for the colonial construction.

Population

The city has approximately 750,000 inhabitants.

Location

Mérida is located in the northwest of Yucatán, a state in the far southeast of Mexico. The city lies a few kilometers inland from the Gulf of Mexico in the area of the so-called Chicxulub Crater, the remainder of a meteorite impact which took place about 65 million years ago.

Economy

Textile industry plays an important role in local economy, although the Mexicans are facing more and more competition from Asian countries which can produce cheaper. On the other hand, being America's neighbor, Mexico can transport cheaper to the United States. Furniture is also made in Mérida and there's a factory producing plane parts. More and more (mainly American) retirees discover Méridan as an attractive place of residence, and tourism is also booming.

Airports

Mérida Airport is called Manuel Crescencio Rejón International Airport in full. The airport is situated in the city's southwestern suburbs, at 8 kilometers from the city center. It's easily reachable by rental car via the Carretera Federal 261. The larger Cancún Airport is a 3-hour drive from Mérida.

Public Transport

Four bus companies operate in Mérida. They provide both city transport and connections with other places in Yucatán and the rest of southern Mexico: Unión de Camioneros de Yucatán (UCY), Alianza de de Camioneros de Yucatán (ACY), Rápidos de Mérida and Minis 2000.

Traffic and Parking

Streets in Mérida are numbered. Odd-numbered streets run from east to west and the more south, the higher the number. Even-numbered streets run from north to south with increasing numbers to the east. This makes it easy to orientate yourself. The main square (Zocalo) lies on the junction of streets (calle) 60 and 61. Mérida has sufficient parking facilities; do park at a guarded lot or garage (Estacionamiento Público).

Hotels

Mérida has a large choice of accommodations. In the city center, around the Zocalo, you'll mainly find midrange and budget hotels. More expensive accommodations are concentrated in the northern part of the city.

Frequently asked questions

Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation.
