Los Balcones de la Musui

Trans-Andina Hwy., near Mucuchíes, Mucuchíes, Mérida, 5101, Venezuela

You reach this colonial-era hacienda, which clings to a mountain ridge, via a steep road that takes you literally into the clouds. When it's clear, which is virtually every morning, the view from each of the cozy rooms is breathtaking. Colorful hammocks slung on the lower-level patio command the same view. A two-hour hike takes you to the Aguas Termales de la Musui, a local hot spring where you'll catch sight of Humboldt Glacier. The restaurant ($–$$) serves food worth going out of your way to sample; don't pass up the trout.

PROS

  • Near fabulous hot springs, friendly

CONS

  • Isolated—you have to drive virtually everywhere
