  • It is a charming site by the imposing of its landscape ideal for photography, full of proud say that Venezuela is, from there you take rides horses and make the route to the Black Lagoon, I recommend them. There is parking is paid a minimum amount for parking, you must take vertimenta adequate because the temperature is very low there is a café if you want to buy a snack, it costs something higher that in the city and not have point of sale. The time is going too fast in the place possibly by how nice that is, location go provided that you go to Merida because it's amazing.
