Los Aleros, Merida

(4.4/5 based on 220+ 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.

  • It is a very beautiful place to walk around and visit all of it attractions. You can buy there local food and desserts. Taking pictures is incredible here.  more »
  • This Park is my favorite of the theme parks of Mérida, maybe because I grew up in the Valley of the Mocoties and I identify with the architecture that there reflect, I like that whenever I go there is something new to see, so although you know that there happens, you always go with the expectation of a new surprise for the enjoyment of young and old

  • Great place to share with family and friends. The ride is spectacular, once inside the village that inhabit there invite you to participate in traditional games of yesteryear. The staff is very attentive.

  • 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.
