Antique Stores in Merida Mexico

This article may contain affiliate links. You can see our disclaimer here.

After learning about the wealth of the henequen industry and history of haciendas in the Yucatan, I began to dream about the famous Mexican pasta tiles, old doorknobs, and various other antiquities floating in and around Merida. And so, browsing antique stores in Merida became a favorite thing to do.

In addition to several antique stores in Merida Centro, there is a flea market every Sunday at 9 am where vendors sell “antiques and things” at Santa Lucia Park. And if you have transportation, I recommend getting out of downtown to explore this list of other antique stores in Merida. Location and hours are subject to change, so verify as you can using the links provided.
