  • A park where to enjoy you have to arrive early, do not accept anything from food, so you have to take money to eat there. Enjoy everything to the maximum. You go very well.

  • A trip to 1925 which allows us to know our past to understand the present... I love general Gomez and the band in the plaza Caracas... Everything is very expensive in the Park... Luckily in this place all the establishments have Pd. Soup in guarico is from another planet... awesome

  • It had been 20 years ago in this park. My spouse or my children knew him and we went because I insisted. Because she is repentant. They didn't show. People had the hassle of attending, although it rained a lot expected to see the show margaritenos and all. We walked almost 4 hours for nothing to do. He has deteriorated much indeed would not return.

  • Venezuela is Awesome! I stopped listening to all the crime stories because here in the US we have more crimes commited in any one city than all of Venezuela combined. I travelled all through the mountains and the cities without any issues. Beautiful country and people.

  • I was brill
  • Go with comfortable clothing and prepared to walk many climbs. There are many places to take photos and people are very attentive. We had lunch in the Zulia, very good food and very attentive the. Waiter, there are point of sale. I recommend go well desayunado for everything you need to walk. Do not allow the passage of food and drinks in the bag you review before you enter.

Where to stay in Merida

An established tourist destination for adventurers and extreme sports enthusiasts, Merida offers ample accommodations for its guests. The town flanks Highway 7, and accommodations spread across the neighborhoods--although the main bulk of options cluster in the eastern end of town. Choose from small, family-run posadas (guesthouses) set in old colonial-era houses, or larger purpose-built hotels. Head up the surrounding hills for outdoor adventure resorts offering a range of activities and tour booking services, as well as rooms overlooking the undulating scenery.
