Fodor's Expert Review Parque Santa Lucía

Mérida City Park

The rather plain park at Calles 60 and 55 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. 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.
