The Destination
As the home of Cancun and Playa del Carmen, Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula is known for its spice. But if you really want a taste of Mexico (and by that, we mean cuisine), you'll opt for Mérida—the region's cultural capital and epicenter of all things que delicioso. Part historical enclave and part budding metropolis, Mérida offers the perfect portion of colonial charm mixed with vibrant cosmopolitan flair. Meander down its cobblestone streets peppered with museums, plazas, and, of course, some of the best street food on the planet before hitting the town and its atmospheric night scene.

For those with an appetite for adventure and fine food,

  • "Expatriates have been flocking to the city in recent years—not only retirees but young couples with boundless energy to explore and show off their adopted home... [where] you never have to look far to find a festival, concert,... or art production."
