Tourism in Merlo (San Luis)

It may not be one of the most visited cities in Argentina, but Merlo , in the San Luis province, has a lot of charm. It is a town in the department of Junín with a population of about 20,000 inhabitants, although when the good weather arrives the number of people in Merlo shoots up considerably.

Adventure tourism is its main claim. But there is more, since it offers alternatives for all audiences:

– The Mogote Bayo Provincial Natural Reserve
– Paragliding flights
– Place de Pasos Malos, very popular to enjoy picnics
– Piedrablanca, a picturesque town that is worth visiting
– The Algarrobo Abuelo, a 1,200-year-old specimen that measures more than 9 meters and has very thick branches, some of which already touch the ground
– The Sierras de los Comechingones, ideal for rappelling, trekking, canyoneering, zip-lining, waterfalls and 4 × 4 trips

Besides that, the festivities dress the streets of Merlo with color and joy. The Fiesta de la Rosa and the Valle del Sol National Festival are some of the most popular. In them you can mix with their people and feel like one of them.

The climate is rather dry, with an average temperature of around 20 degrees Celsius. In summer it ranges between 18 and 33 degrees, while in winter it ranges between 4 and 17 degrees. Its microclimate is characterized by the lack of wind.
