Landmark Tourist Spot
Follow a rustic yet paved mountain path up to Mirador del Sol and you will be awarded with panoramic vistas of the city, neighboring towns, the valley, and the mountains. Walk around, pick a picnic spot, or have a drink at a cafe sitting 1,470 m (4,823 ft) above sea level. Several stops along the way offer opportunities to zipline, horseback ride, and paraglide. If you continue up the road, you will come to the edge of the Sierra Mountains, where the paved path turns into a hiking track.

  • Impossible to go to Merlo and not visit the Mirador del Sol, the place has an impressive view, with stalls selling native things at great prices.

  • There is no doubt that improved the access road and the services in place. There are many stalls to buy handicrafts and regional products. But it is precisely that complaint the landscape. Posts, installed just above the natural balcony looking out over the Valley, do not allow you to fully enjoy the landscape of the town and the towns along the Conlara. And more when one coincides with something large and inevitably noisy contingent. Also, I now notice that he says that the viewpoint is on the road to Villa Carlos Paz. It seems to me that it is a mistake. In short, as station is OK.
