Why go to Merida?

Merida was founded in 1558 by the Spanish captain Juan Rodriquez Suarez. The former population of 25,000 inhabitants has grown to more than 215,000 over the years. It is one of Venezuela´s linchpins in the west, with its ancient cathedral from the year 1803 and an ice cream parlour, “Heladeria Coromoto” which is entered in the “Guinness Book of Records” with more than 800 different types of ice cream, as well as all the other unique sights, it promises rich variety for everyone. Moreover you can find the second oldest university of Venezuela here which has its origins in a priest seminar of 1785.
Merida and its nature
This city is located on a tableland at an altitude of 1630m between the rivers Rio Albarregas and Rio Chama. It is surrounded by two mountain chains, Sierra Nevada in the Southeast and Sierra La Culata in the Northwest. This makes Merida something very special. The highest mountain of Venezuela, Pico Bolivar which has a height of 4985m is very close to Merida. From there you could start tours to the Llanos or interesting and challenging mountain climbs to the bordering mountain ranges. If you like it a little bit more exciting, you could take the chance and do some paragliding, canoying or rafting to make your stay something very special.
