Mérida is a major destination for serious foodies, with a distinct cuisine heavily influenced by Mayan cooking traditions. Any visit should include tasting some of Yucatán’s famous dishes, including Cochinita Pibil – pork roasted in an underground oven, or Papadzule – a taco filed with hard-boiled egg and drenched in pumpkin seed sauce. Locals gather in the afternoon for “botanas” at Eladio’s, Lucero del Alba and Colonos for the free, hearty snacks that arrive nonstop at your table as long as you keep drinking.
