Spend a summer in one of the most beautiful cities in Mexico! Mérida is one of Mexico’s safest and cleanest cities and provides the perfect setting for your study of Spanish language or Mexican literature. The streets of Mérida are lined with colonial mansions and you can still take a ride in a horse-drawn carriage.
Mérida’s residents, who are proud of their colonial roots and their Mayan heritage, will welcome you warmly as they host you and invite you to enjoy the celebration of their cultural pride. You will participate in a number of cultural excursions to the most important Mayan ruins, the Yucatecan cenotes, and protected wildlife reserves. Mérida is a half hour from the sea and features a tranquil lifestyle with all of the modern-day conveniences.
Its cultural offerings, size, and safe character make Mérida the perfect place to study the Spanish language and Mexican culture, as well as Pre-Hispanic and modern Mayan culture.
