As the capital of Yucatan, Merida is home of the Patria Monument in Paseo de Montejo. Over 60% of its residents are of Mayan ethnicity and it is also known for being very native with many different cultures’ influences. Many people come to reside in this smaller city with a little over 1 million inhabitants.
The city holds a lot of old and very influenced architecture. There are many museums, restaurants, churches, cathedrals, and more to explore. When coming here to reside or even stay a while, consider shipping your vehicle over from the United States. This will prove to be invaluable and will allow you to travel the city’s amazing landmarks.

Methods of Vehicle Shipment.
There are three ways to have a vehicle shipped from the United States over into Mexico. RO/RO shipping, container shipping and air shipping. It is up to you to decide which method is best. These methods are all quite different. Container shipping allows a person to send other belongings as well. RO/RO requires the car to be empty and is the cheapest form of shipping. Air shipping is very expensive.
Be selective in your shipping options. Don’t break your budget and consider whether or not shipping other belongings over is necessary. Also, RO/RO shipping is not permissible at all ports. Make sure that there is one nearby that accepts this method of shipping. You will need to be present at the time the car arrives at port. Ports do not hold vehicles for the owner.
