It's a beautiful scenic drive from the city of Merida. We went to Momumento al Perro Nevado, Pico El Aguila, laguna Mukubaji and stopped along the way to take beautiful landscape shots

We went canyoning in Merida and it was so fun! Reallt enjoyable for outdoorsy people! The water is at 13 C and the sights are amazing! Not recommended for people who don't exercise or that suffer from hipothermy.
