Meetings at This Location

The majestic Fiesta Americana Mérida rises up at the intersection of Mérida's two most important avenues: Colon and Paseo Montejo. The combination of exquisitely elegant Porfirian-style architecture and modern technological ensure a pleasurable stay. An icon of the White City, a meeting point of Mérida's society and an attractive destination for vacation and business travelers alike, Fiesta Americana is doubtless one of the best hotels in Mérida. This convenient location allows you to reach the airport in 25 minutes, and downtown in only seven minutes... learn the colonial heritage of the city, listen to the Yucatecan trova notes, and sample typical dishes.
