is situated at 1510 kilometres from Mexico City. In spite of this apparently "huge distance", visiting the Capital of the State of Yucatan is a very simple thing to do; so feel encouraged, pack your suitcase and begin your trip by air or by land; you choose:
- By air: Manuel Crescencio Rejón International Airport, located at 15 minutes from downtown Merida, receives daily flights from Mexico City. The flight takes one hour and 45 minutes approximately.
- By land: It is the best way for travellers who are not short of time. The trip along the highway from the City of Mexico is pretty long and lasts approximately 20 hours. The vehicles covering the distance depart from the Poniente Oeste Bus Terminal (TAPO), located on 200 Ignacio Zaragoza Street, Colony 10 de Mayo, Federal District.
