Never has there been a better time to come to Merida. Prices are rock-bottom. We're almost 1,000 miles from the earthquake. The Maya smile has not dimmed but there are only European tourists. Many hotels are down to $10 to $15 a night because of the rapid devaluation. There is no street crime. What else can I say? Come to Merida! I am living here as a retiree and dearly love it.
