John and Joelle are a couple who are personable and professionally, with a great love and care for the inn, which is just 100 meters from Mérida by cable car, the highest and longest in the world, but now closed, and it seems to have been for quite a while . The inn is actually a family home, with several kitchens that guests can use, and a beautiful terrace with carved wooden furniture. Some rooms have a hammock on the balcony, which are the sunniest ones and the highest recommended.
The experience of sleeping at the inn, at 2700 meters high, is something that cannot be valued, and the site is perfectly designed for maximum relaxation, with hot water, a huge balcony with hammocks and a panoramic view over the valley of Los Nevados. It has a wood-burning oven where they cook great food for its guests.
John is originally from Barbados and has lived in Venezuela since 1991. His house is in an idyllic valley of Merida, and offers something unique in an annex: A sauna and steam room with cold water pools, all set in an area of lush vegetation.
The owners of this house gave it a Basque name, Atsegindegi, and the place exudes peace, tranquility and harmony, with a beautiful garden that leads to the river, where there is a barbecue for holidays. The house has two floors, the lower one is a living room / open kitchen, and there is an attic above, to accommodate an entire family. It's in the entrance of the Mucuy National Park, one of the best places for bird watching, and with good paths to have a stroll.
This isn't a true inn, it's a private home, now owned by the grandson of Domingo Peña, the first person to climb the Bolivar peak, with sandals and little else. He built his house in the place with the best views of the PN, and hosts people who make the trek to Los Nevados. Both the sunset and the sunrise are spectacular from here, because oftentimes the sea of clouds that covers the city of Mérida is below the house, which is at 2700 metres in altitude.
In the pretty village of Los Nevados, about four hours from Merida on a road that gives you the willies, there are 10 inns, but the one with the best location, as its name indicates, is Bella Vista, near the village church. It has a fantastic panoramic view.
