Los Aleros, Merida

4.5
Wander through Los Aleros, an educational ethno village nestled in a picturesque Andean valley. Designed by Alexis Montilla in 1984, the complex looks like a traditional Andean village in the 1930s, with wooden homes, agricultural land, village stores and services, and staff wearing typical clothes from the time. Learn about the daily life of villagers by inspecting contraptions used in agriculture and housekeeping, and step inside a typical kitchen to see what's cooking. Try on some traditional threads and watch as the villagers entertain themselves, playing folk songs on old instruments. Planning Merida trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

  • Reach the eaves is to travel back in time, it is to immerse yourself in those years and in this place with its traditions, its food, clothing... is to know deeper our past.

  • Excellent site to get out of the rut and release stress. The system is very similar to the Venezuela de antier. Going through various games and ancient sites of Mérida that make very fun stay.

  • Eaves is a village built with ancient construction methods. Disconnect you a little so much technology that makes that many are glued to the phone. It is an entire village set at the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century. When you buy your ticket you will get a nice passport where you fill your details and a brochure with a map of the eaves where you see all the points to visit. If you're in car you leave it in the parking lot and an old bus takes you back to the village. When you get sure to seal your passport and start the tour. The best. 1. the slide, you become child to jump 2. Wheat mill, have an old mill which rotates with the force of the water and there are all-natural wheat flour and with that same flour make arepas. They are very rich stuffed with cheese and cream. Chicha is from corn and is fermented with the same corn, very rich and natural. 3. the printing press. It has a large old and super printing see it work leaves you crazy. There if you pay make you an impression in your Passport with the history of the eaves and your name. The man who makes the impression is adorable. Staff is very friendly and explains with love story.

  • Good family fun. Be prepared to walk steep stairs and grades if you want see most of the attractions. Don't expect a lot of handrails or handicap ramps. Slides are fun, just wear elbow pads! This is a half day affair unless your planning to spend a lot of money and get really drunk. A little history and a trip back in time, Disney-style. People are super nice and friendly. Fun and interesting place, we've been twice and will probably return.
  • I am doing landmarks of Venezuela in my class and I have been here!
  • My preferred park in Merida!!!

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.
