Abstract: Given that tourist supply is a part of a complex system of services, facilities and relationships generated by human mobility, attempts to present in an up-to-date way the main elements comprising the tourist supply in Mérida state, Venezuela, as a contribution to the planning and development of such an important economic activity in the Andean region. Following data collection was achieved in the Mayoralties of the state, among other tourismrelated organizations. Following the methodology issued by the Tourism Corporation of Venezuela, it is concluded that the Mérida state, in addition to the natural and cultural recreational attractions, has a great number of tourist structures consisting of receptive and complementary facilities and infrastructure which, far from being expanded, should be improved and adequate. A new type of accommodation was identified (Mucuposadas), with significant advantages.
