Life Long Learning – Merida Day Trips 2012

If you cannot join us for the Veracruz & Puebla culture-adventure tour in 2012… maybe you’d like to come along on one of the three local day trips we have planned?

The three feature a variety of attractions and you’ll meet lots of new friends.


Life Long Learning – Mérida is offering three local field trips. The trips are an excellent way to see the attractions surrounding Merida and to meet new friends. All trips include round trip bus transportation, entrance to the sites and a meal. You should wear comfortable clothing and for the February and March trips, bring a swim suit and towel. Also, bring your camera and a note pad and pen!

Payments:  Please note that the price of the workshops are in Mexican pesos. Payment can ONLY be made in this currency, in person at:

Tecnología Turística Total: Calle 57 No. 492 Entre 56 & 58, Centro, Mérida.

Life Long Learning – Merida reserves the right to cancel a workshop if there are not enough participants.  Those who have prepaid will receive a full refund.
