I'd consider it walking distance. http://goo.gl/maps/mwOzO Make sure you specify the Merida CAME ("KAH-may") station; there are several but CAME is the main one.)

Merida has its own forum too.

The hotel is at 61 and 66 in the center. It is walkable if you don´t have much luggage but I would not want to do it in the Merida heat. If you flag down a metered taxi in front of the terminal, the fare will only be about 25 pesos. (the non metered taxis have a site inside the terminal but this is more costly).

I wouldn't walk it between 10 am and 5 pm. Outside those hours, I'd probably give it a go.

As long as the Fray Diego has a pool, then do a little walking in the heat - you can jump in the pool and it will be a refreshing relief.
