Merida Mexico lies about 20 miles from the western Yucatan Gulf coast and makes an excellent base for exploring the Yucatan’s many Mayan treasures. Known to the indigenous Maya as the city of T’HO, and often called the White City because of the large amount of limestone used to construct its buildings, this charming colonial city is a paradox of two cultures that have influenced its development over the last 500 years.
Being the second edition of Merida’s Triathlon (2016), Merida will be the venue of the “First triathlon of the year”
