Mifafi Moor
(5)
The Mifafi moor is situated in Merida Venezuela, via Mucuchies and it is a place that is absolutely stunning and inspires peace ... at the site where I took the pictures is where you will find a host of Inparques which is the organization that takes care of the natural reserves ... In this place you can also see the three Condor of the Andes in perfect condition. It was beautiful and impressive ... I like the place because it is nice to find places that provide tranquility in which one can release all tensions that the city gives us.

Every corner of the Pico el Aguila, from the centre of Merida, is fabulous. Its meals, crafts, fascinating strawberry cream, and the Andean peak are all wonderful. The people of Mucurubá, which is where my family and I stayed, are wonderful. I recommend visiting Merida. You won't regret it!!

This is a place in an old coffee plantation that was restored 10 years ago. More than a century ago the export of coffee was one of the main sectors of Venezuela. They retain the old machinery, and there is an exhibition highlighting the life of people who moved to Venezuela and founded the ranch.

El Paramo de la Culata

Just minutes from the center of town is the El Paramo de la Culata. It is a tourist spot, with a temperature that falls once you get to your destination. Here you have horseback riding, plantlife, landscapes, food, hotels, and locals that make this trip a pleasant one. To get there, go through "el Valle" and "Vallecito" where you will find the famous Andean cupcakes served as a tasty breakfast. The fruity wines, strawberries, blackberries, or theme parks will give you the excuse to spend a day with the family.

Market of Mérida

This is a must see in Mérida, whether you buy or not, since you can see the idiosyncrasies in the Merida Andes. There are three levels and it is always bustling with people and activity. I prefer outdoor and chaotic markets, because it's wonderful for taking photos,. this is very organized by product, regional crafts, meats, vegetables, breads, sweets, honey, fruit wines, etcetera. On the upper floor there is a dining are with 5 restaurants.
