Mérida’s government announced that this year’s caravans will also have more floats, as well as special guests including comedians, clowns, and of course the man himself — Santa Claus.

Aside from the Christmas Caravan, several other activities have been scheduled for December, including the Coca-Cola Fantasilandia theme park, a Christmas Village directly behind the Remate on Paseo de Montejo, as well as plays and other activities in Mérida’s city parks.

The Christmas Caravan does not appear to have any routes planned for Centro, but to get out and experience it there are several dates and other locations to do so.
