Merida Events: Week of August 24

23 August 2015 Events 0

What is your favorite beach in Yucatan State?

This week probably finds a lot of Meridanos dealing with closing up beach houses and getting kids back in school. We saw on someone's Facebook page that a whole group of foreign exchange students have just arrived from Europe. As you reflect about how your summer went, take our beach poll (above) and let us know which beach YOU prefer... there are so many to choose from!

In Merida, there are not a lot of new and different events this week. And it is supposed to rain. But fear not! The movie selections are quite amazing, and soon Merida will be brimming over with exciting new things to do. In the meantime, relax, come inside and see something fun on a big screen!
