Escape Your Life in Mérida


4. Insider’s Tip

William Lawson takes visitors on daylong excursions throughout Mérida's surrounding towns.   

If you’re unsure of your bus-navigation skills (or your Spanish), contact William Lawson, a Canadian expat who runs a personal driving service. Having lived in Mérida for over a decade, he’s an expert guide to Yucatán culture and destinations like the Mayan ruins, Celestún, and the surrounding colonial towns (as well as the newest restaurants—he also runs Mérida food blog Casual Restaurant Critic). Rates start at $50 and are tailored to your trip.
