We came to Merida last winter. Very pleased with the nice weather, the friendly people, the very low cost of living, we bought a house that we are renovating now. The downside of Merida is the noise and air pollution. Shop owners apparently think that playing loud music attracts costumers. Ofcourse the neighbor shop tries to attract the same clients and plays even louder...The local bus companies, of which there are at least 10 different, drive very noisy, stinking old diesel engines.
Regardless of these factors, we love the city and plan to live here for at least 6 month a year.

Local people (Mexican) are not a problem. I am more bothered by other expats and their intolerances and attitudes.

I live In north Florida and am considering retiring in Mexico. Visited Merida twice last year. In April, the temperature was 105° which was a lot hotter than Tallahassee. It was, the merit a resident said, I’m usually hot. The humidity was less than Tallahassee. In September, the temperature was about the same as Tallahassee. I liked that the cost of living is so low that one easily could afford to live in a house with a pool. The people were very friendly. It seemed very safe. It also was

I'm glad to read you enjoyed your visit to Merida. I am curious as to how you found the climate. My research indicates that it is extremely humid, with high temperatures. I would love to move there, but am moving away from South Florida, from which I am a native and love, but it is getting waaay too hot for me! Please advise. Thank you.

We have visited twice and with very pleasant exp (food's a bit simple for us but life's still tolerable if you jnow how to cook well), but the city is a very nice and safe place to settle in, retire or just visiting. Unfortunately we have to fly back to our hime country to care for our parents, but if possible would love to retire here. I'm gonna miss Merida a lot :(
