Parque Las Heroínas


This recently remodeled plaza, in front of the cable-car station in the heart of Mérida, is a popular local place to hang out in the shade of the trees and in front of the impressive fountains. It really comes to life at night when it's full of young revelers, musical performers and busy bars.
