The hotel is also near Paseo de Montejo North, a 19th century boulevard inspired by French designs similar to the Avenue des Champs-Élysées, lined with lush trees and elegant mansions from the period. Ideal for a stroll back in time, the area offers dining, museums and colonial period original architecture blending Mayan ancestral times with Yucatan modern-day living.

Hampton by Hilton Merida offers free daily Hampton's On the House® hot breakfast featuring local fare, a private dining room and a trendy bar for a relaxing beverage.
