  • First time I visited this park and I love the simplicity and beauty of know a totally different Venezuela. Each of those who work adhere to his character and are extremely cordial and helpful with each visitor. A beautiful experience that is very much worth living. Recommended 100%

  • Although the Park is new offers a path that causes feelings... have contact with nature and animals, walk and go in rustic. Excellent project of Mr Alexis Montilla. Don't forget to visit it! 5 hours seem few for so nice visit :)

  • It is a vast park full of surprises, with representation of each State in Venezuela, with its resulting and typical aspects, discover each State is an adventure where you laugh and you will be surprised with their characters and you will live a unique experience, it is spectacular to go family because it will result in unforgettable moments that can immortalise a photo with time, even dresses costume how Juan Vicente Gómez. There are places to eat and even for alcoholic beverages. It is ideal to spend a day, a bit away from the center of the city is, parking is separate. From there to the Park transfer vehicle from the Park.

  • 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.

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.
