Parque Centenario Ejército Mexicano

The Parque Centenario del Ejército Mexicano (Centennial Park of the Mexican Army) has something special to offer. However, due to its location, most people will probably never get to see it.

The park is located in an industrial area on the south-western outskirts of Mérida, but it is worth a visit if you are interested in military things and want to see something different.

It is large an open space with an area of about 30,000 square meters and there are several original decommissioned military vehicles like fighter planes, tanks and other armored vehicles. They are each on a pedestal, but you can climb up and in.

In one half of the park there is only military equipment in a large open space, in the other half there is also military equipment, but with some trees, park benches and a playground for children.

The park was opened on December 5, 2013 in honor of the 100th anniversary of the Mexican Army. If you want to come by car, there are plenty of parking spaces around the site.


There is no shade in one half of the park, which you should bear in mind if you want to come here. If the sun is beating down at midday, you'll be fried. However, you should still come during the day, as there is not so much lighting in the evening.

At times the park was not well maintained and there is sometimes garbage in the vehicles. These are things that can change quickly in Mexico and unfortunately you sometimes don't know exactly what to expect until you are there yourself.

Army base

Parque Centenario del Ejército Mexicano is located in the southwest from Mérida near the airport and in front of the army base in Mérida. The Army Base in Merida houses a significant number of military personnel, with an estimated permanent staff of over 1,000 soldiers.

The base accommodates various specialized units, including infantry, artillery, and logistical support teams. The army base has barracks for the troops, administrative offices, training grounds, maintenance workshops and storage facilities for military material and equipment.
