Mérida is one of the “Destinations you must visit in 2019” (Purewow)

Purewow.com is a women’s lifestyle website that features information on fashion, beauty, home, entertainment, wellness, money, tech, food, books, travel and family. They came up with a list of “Destinations to Visit in 2019 Before Everyone Hears About Them”… and guess which Yucatecan city made the list?… yep, good old Mérida

The world is a big, beautiful place. Are you familiar with Garzón? How about Marcoola? Neither are most people—at least, not yet. So to satisfy your wanderlust (and desire to avoid the crowds), we’ve compiled a list of locales that have magically managed to stay off the well-beaten tourist path. Though, we can’t guarantee that’ll be the case for much longer. Our advice? Book ASAP.

Purewow.com  says that: even when Mérida is the capital of the state of Yucatán, from a tourism perspective, it’s been playing second fiddle to the Mexican Caribbean and Gulf beaches for far too long. This inland city is teeming with Spanish colonial churches and Mayan heritage. To the north are the ruins of Dzibilchaltun and Cenote Xlacah.

Other destinations on the list are:

COMPORTA, PORTUGAL
ESSAOUIRA, MOROCCO
MARCOOLA, AUSTRALIA
CAPE KOLKA, LATVIA
XI’AN, CHINA
SEWARD, ALASKA
TBILISI, GEORGIA
ULAANBAATAR, MONGOLIA
GARZÓN, URUGUAY
SAN MIGUEL DE ALLENDE, MEXICO
VALLETTA, MALTA
