Really nice.

Beautiful. All kind of stores and restaurants. The the past meets the present and the future. You can take a nice walk looking at beautiful colonial buildings.

We walked the length of this street and were not impressed. There are wide footpaths and a couple of nice buildings. But otherwise there were no shops or cafes or restaurants to stop at except Starbucks. There were a lot of abandoned buildings and shops so maybe this strip is past its heyday? Or maybe it's more pleasant to drive... More

The Paseo de Montejo boulevard is in my opinion, the most attractive street in Merida. Walking on the well-cared sidewalks was one of the highlights of visiting this city. It is full of French style colonial mansions and fruit trees, which attracts doves, and birds of vibrant colors. I was hoping to review the whole city of Merida but apparently,... More

A lovely avenue with colonial houses with a French style. Lots of shade and really clean street. Some bars with terraces would be wonderful

The Paseo de Montejo is lined with old mansions and government buildings, restaurants and bars, shops and galleries, the archeological museum and various monuments. It is a great place to stroll and enjoy the various sights and activities. And on Sunday morning and one evening a month, it is shut down to normal traffic and open to those on tow... More

The broad boulevard lined with mansions dating from the late 19th century makes for a lovely, leisurely drive. It is worth a visit if you are driving through Merida

This is a beautiful, broad boulevard lined with trees, shops, restaurants, banks and museums. Horse-drawn carts can be seen and heard going up and down the street and there is always something fun to see or do along this long stretch of elegance in Merida.

We had the experience of travelling along the Paseo de Montejo, the central boulevard of Merida, in a horse-drawn carriage - which is really the best way to see and savour the marvellous and wonderful old Spanish-colonial mansions and villas that line the route - interspersed with the odd hotel, shop or bank. How the wealthy silver and sisal merchants... More
