Moving around is not a complicated task in Merida. The City has several means of public transportation (buses, also called camiones - lorries -, collectives and station wagons), which will facilitate your touring around the capital City of Yucatan. The cost of the ride varies depending on the type of service you choose.
Regarding the taxis, the rates depend on several factors, such as the distance to be covered, the starting point of the service, the time of the day, the number of passengers and the cargo. Ask for the price before hoping into the vehicle in order to avoid further inconveniences.
The rides on carriages towed by horses are a picturesque alternative and a tradition that began in the XIX century, when the wealthy locals toured the City on this means of transportation. Nowadays these elegant carriages can be found at 61st Street corner with 58th (nearby the Cathedral) and at Paseo Montejo corner with Colon Avenue (Hotel Zone).
