Accomodation is in MERIDA at our Venezuelan family run Posada on a quiet corner of the main square in the old town, opposite the famous teleferico. The Posada was renovated specially to accomodate our business. As well as comfortable rooms and shared bathroom facilities there is a nice dining room with double height ceiling - students meet here for breakfast and dinner. We also have several classrooms including a large covered deck on the top of the building which serves as a classroom on nice days, chill out area and where we have the occassional party and big dinners.
Merida is a safe and vibrant university town. There are many student bars and cafes in the neighbourhood - nice to hang out in and improve your Spanish!
Merida is of course also famous for outdoor pursuits - did you know you can go ice climbing all year round? Jakera are a full service adventure travel outfitter so we can help you with 1/2 and full day trips to do mountain biking, horseriding, canyoning, paragliding, climbing, hiking... you name it, we've done it!
