Welcome to The Andes

Mérida state is in the heart of the Venezuelan Andes and has the highest mountains and the best-developed facilities for travelers. The city of Mérida is one of the continent’s top adventure-sports destinations, and is also the gateway to Los Llanos grasslands, Venezuela's most famous wildlife-watching destinations. Mérida is one of the few places in Venezuela that has maintained a steady flow of visitors despite the economic situation. The two other Andean states, Trujillo and Táchira, are less visited, but have many trekking opportunities for intrepid travelers.
