Tour description:

The concept of the cantinas is well known around the world and they have a variety of names such as taverns, pubs, canteens and saloons etc. “Las Cantinas” in Mexico are fun and traditional. The locals come here to socialize, enjoy some drinks and snacks and share traditional music with Mérida‘s latest stories.

Make your way (on your own) to the lobby of the Hotel Caribe which is the meeting point for the tour.

Today, you will immerse yourself in the special atmosphere of “Las Cantinas”. You will visit three different locations each with their own history and famous freshly prepared regional snacks which are known as “botanas”. Some of the snacks you may try are panuchos, salbutes, tacos, papadzules, among other stews and typical dishes.
