Sierra Nevada, Merida

4.9
Satisfy your thirst for adrenalin at Sierra Nevada, an outdoor-lover's paradise in Venezuela's most mountainous region. The expansive national park offers a range of thrilling outdoor activities, including canyoning, white-water rafting, and mountain climbing up to peaks of 5,000 m (16,404 ft). If you're looking for a more relaxed way to appreciate the scenery, hire a guide and embark on one of the park's many excellent hiking trails. Take it easy in the higher-altitiude regions: you'll tire very easily until you acclimatize to the thinner mountain air. Sierra Nevada is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Merida Edition.

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.
