      Hi Eva, Merida is located in the state of Yucatan close to the beach and surrounded with historical treasures and pueblos magicos. Merida offers travelers a diverse amount of tourism options with nearby archeological site Mayapan, the yellow city of Izamal, fresh water cenotes, distinct Yucatecan cuisine, gorgeous haciendas and old world charm. Although I haven’t personally been to San Miguel, I’ve seen that it offers colorful vistas, abundant natural activities and has a large American/Canadian expat artist community. San Miguel is inland. Then Cancun is on the Caribbean side of Mexico, with white sand beaches, bright turquoise waters and many archeological sites to see while Puerto Vallarta is on the Pacific side of Mexico and is very tropical with gorgeous sunsets, nice beaches, fresh seafood and offers a charming centro with a very friendly atmosphere. Just north of Puerto Vallarta is Riviera Nayarit which has the most upscale resorts. Mexico offers 4 and 5 star resorts in all its major tourism destinations, so it’s a matter of preference. Some offer all-inclusive and some are EP plan (European plan, or non all-inclusive). Hope that helps!
