Delicious fruit popsicles
Many times in Mexico, travel experts suggest that non-locals avoid tap water. This is correct - advice worth following. Many tourists however, avoid all popsicle stands that offer fruit + water popsicles, missing a truly unique opportunity to try some pretty special local fruits when in a town like Merida. There are a number of popsicle stores around the main square in Merida and they all make their wares with bottled water. You can ask for clarification on this point. Don't miss the awesome fruit flavors like tamarindo and mamey. Elote (corn) is also a local favorite. You just might like it...
