One cannot feel anything but ennui as you stroll this majestic avenue. It truly has its Antecedents in the grand boulevards of European capitals. Unfortunately there are many that are closed up waiting for rehab money that is not ever coming. The glory days here are long gone for much of the real estate

Walking on this street is going back to the years when Yucatan was a powerful economic state making out their fortune from hemp, the sisal or henequen. These french mansions are telling us all the magnificency of those years, the people who lived there and the nation they wanted to have. Stroll around evening and enjoy the many restaurants, bars...

Photo-worthy along the whole route. Absolutely beautiful colonial buildings. City closes down part of the paseo on Sunday for family bike riding. Plenty of restaurants. Very dog friendly. Immaculately clean.

Amazingly beautiful paseo with a view of the most antique and well preserved houses more than 100 years old.

Shady sidewalks with many "palacetes" (small palaces from early XX century) on Sunday they close two lanes of the Paseo MOntejo to allow bicycles and roller skates to use the venue. Lots of inhabitants of Merida show up to exercise or just to walk around.

if you ever visit Yucatan, you must visit Paseo Montejo. It is very old and colonial, yet very modern with shops, banks, cafes and restaurants. Imagine Starbucks and McDonald's in old colonial building. Must see.

There are.4 big (former) mansions at the S end that are quite spectacular, but the rest seems to just be a shopping street with, amongst all things, a a Walmart! Bicycle rental on Sundays requires the deposit of a Passport or Driver's Licence - neither of which I was prepared to do.
