When in Merida we are always hopeful that there will be a symphony scheduled. It is worth visiting the theatre even if there is no performance. Symphonies are very affordable and world renown.

We went with a large group from Belgium to this beautiful theater. It was unfortunately closed. But, like everywhere in Mexico, a number of pesos makes the difference. So we could visit without problems this beautiful theater without any other tourist. Fantastic.
