Los Aleros, Merida
(4.4/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Los Aleros by using our Merida travel itinerary planner.

  • He was 15 years old not visiting it. And this time we went with the girls. They had much fun and were even a little frightened. It maintains the essence of the ancient town of Merida. Where can you learn some of their traditions and customs.

  • Like anything done by Mr. Alexis Montilla, consists of a real visit to the past, it is the experience of first-hand from the time of our great-grandparents, of simple living, healthy, clean and pure, is internalized the start of our principles as Venezuelans. There is no book, movie, internet, makes you literally "live" the past and not wanting you to go

  • 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.
  • Buen Parke tematico
  • Great place for the family enjoy clean, pleasant, very good service, good history of our beautiful country. But only 3 stars since it seems to me that the prices in the restaurant are very high for the quality of food; they must think about people and the sacrifices they made to make tourism in this country. My humble opinion to those parks theme of my country are more attractive

  • Beautiful theme park that ceased to be such to become a large Bazaar where all or sell it or ask for a "collaboration", has no raison d ' être since that's why one pays an entry that is not for anything cheap. Nothing to do with the visit did years ago.
