I don't like the crime rate increased so fast in the last three years... can someone explain why? But from my experience it feels safer than Baltimore where I am from, the people are pleasant. I ran an issue with an AirBnB host when I got here though...

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
