Parque EcoArqueologico

Parque EcoArqueologico is more than anything a nature reserve. It is located just a little further west of Parque Ecológico del Poniente. The park is rather large, it has a layout so you can run or ride a bike.

Inside the park there are no benches, rest points or playgrounds and there is practically no lighting. So if you love pure and unadulterated nature you will enjoy it. Try to go there with your mountain bike.

There are also vestiges of the Mayan culture visible in various parts of the park, but don't expect too much, it's actually just a few piles of stones and walls that haven't been restored.

A few tips

The best time to visit Mérida's Parque EcoArqueologico is early in the morning when the heat is at its lowest. Entrance is free and it is open 24 hours every day of the week.

The park has groundskeepers but it is extensive and it's wise not to visit too late at night (until about 8:00 pm), also because there is so lighting on the paths. If you want to walk, take good sturdy shoes with you.
