WHERE'S MY BAG: MERIDA, MEXICO
The “Where’s My Bag?” series highlights Clark & Mayfield bags in interesting locations around the world. This is a guest post by Michelle C. of IntentionalTravelers.com. Michelle and her husband are "digital nomads," running their business online as they travel. Michelle shares about some of the destinations she's visited with her Clark & Mayfield bag in tow.
Mérida, Mexico is a popular travel destination in the Yucatan peninsula for Mexican vacationers and foreign tourists alike. The city has a rich cultural life, with frequent community events and dining for both budget and luxury travelers. Many tourists use Mérida as a base to visit nearby archeological sites, cenotes (underground rivers), and beaches.
Why We Went
We decided to stay in Mérida for three weeks at the start of the year, thanks to a recommendation from some well-traveled friends. We were impressed with the many cultural events, colorful exterior walls and secret interior courtyards, grand colonial buildings, affordable eateries, and proximity to Mayan ruins.
Although it was "winter," temperatures still reached the high 90's on occasion, but most days were pleasantly warm - a welcome relief from the snow storms taking place back home in the Northwest!
