Put on your headphones and watch a couple of in-flight flicks. Before you know it, you'll be hitting the runway at Manuel Crescencio Rejon International Airport (MID). It's approximately 3 miles (5 kilometers) to the southwest from the middle of Merida.
While the usual tourist areas in Merida can be nice to see, why not head a little further out and explore completely new sights with a rental car via Travelocity?
Picking up the car keys right at Manuel Crescencio Rejon International Airport means you'll be out of the terminal and behind the wheel in the blink of an eye. Head to Mex Rent A Car and Fox Rental Cars.

Looking to explore the local religion? Visit Merida Cathedral to get a feel for where many locals worship.
Want some more options?
Toss a ball around with your kids and enjoy the greenery at Hidalgo Park. You might even like to bring a picnic and make a day of it.
But that's not all there is.
You'll want to see Plaza Grande, a historic public square that attracts both locals and tourists.
