We are interested in touring Merida. Would you recommend getting a taxi/bus to Merida on our own, or book through cruise ship? We are going on the RCCL Voyager.

Thanks! :-)

By all means on your own. Taxi $25 ea way. Local bus $3.00 RT. Merida is a fantastic spanish colonial city. Pretty sophisticated. Not at all like Cancun, Cozumel or boardertowns. While in Merida, take the carriage ride. $25 for a 50 minute tour out on Paseo Montejo. Upscale area with the prettiest Walmart I've ever seen. Take plenty of film or memory Lots of good photo ops.

It sounds wonderful! And since I live in NW Arkansas, home of Wal-mart, how could I skip that? :-) Thanks for the info!!

Hey:
I'm going to show my red-neck roots...
Will you post some pictures of the WalMart?
We are going in Octubre oops, October and the curiosity is killing me.

I had a flash back to my aunt and uncle showing us pictures when they moved to Petersburg, Alaska. One of the pictures they showed us was of K-Mart. There was a gravel parking lot and the point of the photograph was the 18 bald eagles in the trees behind it!

Thanks,
Chuck

Great tours of the city are offered in the local market at Progresso. Worth the money. Our guide was very good!

The Merida Walmart has an underground parking garage with escalator. The shopping cart wheels lock when you start down the escalator.

We leave July 5 and since my husband is the manager of our local Wal-Mart.....I know what we will be doing!

I am sure we will take plenty of pictures! He is taking a vacation from Wal-Mart to go see a Wal-Mart. Go figure. It will be great though and I will post pics.
