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.

  • Eaves was the first theme park of Mr. Alexis Montilla, and it shows, represents the primary effort of a venture without equal in Venezuela. To define a theme park there are to go beyond of what represents a subject specific, for my theme park is the one where your you enter and actually breathe all that surrounds the specific topic. If you go to Disney from the moment you enter you breathe to Disney or at least the parts which are found around Disney. If you go to the Kingdom of Musipan you not breathe absolutely nothing, beyond a series of entertainment with some essence of Creole mood. Eaves your you walk and breathe to the Andes, and eye is not for the fact that estes in the Andes, it should be remembered that it is not more than a village of lying, but everything that surrounds it makes you think that you are in a village in the Andes, it can be Mucuchíes, sidings, any of them, the difference is that the latter are people of truth. Is by this that not leave of think in it extraordinary of this idea, and of the commitment of its creator and of all those that work in it. I met personally making the role of the boyfriend who also represents the Civil Chief and which commanded most of the people, and simply was impressed of her gift of people, their identification with the company and as dedicated to his work. More than 20 years ago that he would not visit this park, is that he had more than 20 years that was not going to Merida and whenever you can eaves, will come to see the wedding ceremony, to take miche in the village bar, to go up to the Bell Tower of the Church. Ultimately, just be there and feel that I am in the heart of the Venezuelan Andes.

  • A good place for kids, having fun, but visiting it once already visit it always, some things do not change... in general is a good place for children getting distracted or panic...

  • A pleasant place, with lots of Venezuelan history. It should be prepared to climb stairs. Otherwise, very nice, travel is fun. Super good climate and the breathtaking views. Recommended

  • 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.
