Caracas Sights and Landmarks Guide, Venezuela


Caracas, Venezuela is a beautiful city, with something for everyone.  This capital city of Venezuela has abundant travel options, including buses, a subway, and taxis.  The taxis do not have meters, so agree on the fare before you get in to keep any confusion at bay.

Caracas enjoys very mild weather and is perfect for outings.  There are many street vendors to be found, day or night.  This city is a bustling metropolis and even in the middle of the night, there is something going on.

Caracas itself is considered a concrete jungle.  There are high rise buildings everywhere and some of the lower rent areas of the city can be dangerous.  Make sure you are aware of your surroundings and ask for advice when visiting an attraction unfamiliar to you.

Caracas, however, offers some outstanding attractions that really must be seen.  One of the most popular is the Avila Mountain.  This is a great place for hiking or you can take a cable car, called Teleferico to the top.  It provides a wonderful view of the city and on a really clear day, you can see the Caribbean Sea to the north.  On top of the mountain, you will find some restaurants and many attractions and ride for children.  There is also a skating rink and jungle gyms.  One of the best restaurants at the top is a fondue place.

Caracas is really a unique city to visit, but you must use your head to avoid some tourist pitfalls.  One of the more recent scams is to attempt to get thirty dollars out of tourists coming into the airport as an entry tax into Venezuela.  There is no tax and simply tell them no.

Caracas can be a great vacation destination.  When planning your next getaway, consider Caracas, Venezuela.
