  • This beauty of National Park contains landscapes more dramatic that you can imagine, at certain times of the year falls enough to snow in areas above 4000 metres, in my opinion the best of this park is the area of Mucubají lagoon where to horseback or mule can make trips to other nearby lakes in the midst of a spectacular nature that has nothing to envy to any other countries

  • Going to Mérida by the Moor is the best but the road is narrow and there are many cliffs seem very safe provided that the driver is very cautious and attentive while driving... do stop in the village of Santo Domingo is mandatory because if a good part of the ride is not lost there is sale of strawberries with cream, pastries, and many locals with point of sale although the prices are more expensive in the city itself are affordable... It cannot be bought...!
