Parque de Santiago

Parque de Santiago is a nice quiet park in the district of the same name. The park is located four blocks from Plaza Grande, on Calle 59 between Calle 70 and Calle 72.

The park in the heart of the Santiago neighborhood is next to the pretty church Parroquia de Santiago Apóstol and the market Mercado de Santiago in the same block. The market is held daily and the stalls offer food, flowers, fruit and vegetables.

Santiago Park is a typical small downtown square with lots of park benches where you can sit and relax and watch the people go by. Nearby are restaurants, bistros, bars and grocerys stores. On weekends there are also vendor stalls.

Santiago is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Mérida. After the city was founded in 1542, it was mainly the indigenous Mayan population that lived there. Accordingly, Santiago Park is one of the oldest parks in Mérida.

There are some shade trees and a nice water fountain in the middle. As with most parks, free Wi-Fi is available and managed by the city. A parking lot and a taxi stand is also available.

Musical Remembrances

There is no better accompaniment to a night out than live music, and Mérida is known for it. You can also enjoy live music and dancing every Tuesday at 8:30 pm at Santiago Park in a light and very friendly atmosphere.

It's called "Musical Remembrances". The Municipal Orchestra plays Latin and American big-band music from the 1940s. The average age of the dancers is probably well over 50, but of course everyone is invited to join in.

You can also come back for your shopping at Mercacdo de Santiago every morning or for breakfast at one of the various cafes on Santiago square.

The neighborhood

The Barrio de Santiago is one of the most beautiful districts in the city center of Mérida. You will find many nice restaurants, bistros, bars and stores. Directly across from the park is a school and on the north side of the block is a Cinemex movie theater.

There is also a small Akí Express supermarket on Calle 72 opposite the park and an Oxxo convenience store right next door. If you are traveling by car, you will find a relatively large number of parking spaces here, especially compared to other places.
