Expat from Deep South USA on May 23, 2022:
I feel much safer in Merida than in the USA. Locals are friendly. Fresh produce is ample and very affordable. Outside the city center you'll find many wonderful areas to live. Clean and relatively quiet. No pollution. Mexico is a very active country so noise is common. I enjoy the liveliness though. Very walkable and transportation is plentiful and cheap by the US standards. Gentrification is an issue especially in Centro. Shopping local is very affordable and recommended

Wren, locals here in Merida are not Mexican.( Most ) are Yucatecans. Go to Scotland, sit in a pub and tell the locals they are Brit. Yucatecan people are of Maya heritage, no Spanish blood lines

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.
