  • Spectacle of ancient construction to the impressive and majestic sea of truth a unforgettable stroll the incredible view and the secure facilities to take superb photos and be there a good time especially at sunset

  • Despite being in ruins, the castle is living history, the castle was the national hero Francisco de Miranda and fought important battles to protect important bastion protector of Venezuela and its reserves of salt (as sought after as the gold at that time). Note: Tourism Ministry and Government should pay more attention and devote resources to the preservation and promotion of tourist destinations of high value as Araya, its people and its castle. (Mismanagement). If you are traveling to Venezuela, you must visit Araya, its castle and its beaches (one of the best in Venezuela), and if you consider yourself a true adventurer, I recommend you know the desert of Chacopata and throw you an expedition from the Araya Peninsula to the Paria.

  • Although part of the Castle now in ruins the view out to sea is magical... for those who prefer to move barges can seize them in Cumaná. but the best is to enter x Cariaco and follow the road towards chacopata to Araya... Food and additional services there are accommodations, beach as the Car {upano deep in cold water and waves... at the entrance of the village is the Saltworks, even part of the process of extraction of salt can be seen... carry enough drinks because in high season it is difficult to achieve as there are not many liquor stores, the bad thing is that strong breeze that lifts sand and becomes annoying

  • It is beautiful, the only bad thing is that people who live nearby and visitors don't care it and there are lot of garbage to your around, there are also many abandoned dogs, this makes it beautiful, but very sad place

  • If visit Araya (under any circumstances) can't you visit this site, a great tranquility, crystal-clear and sublime landscape

  • If you like simple tourists liked beaches and the typical food of the area. But if you open your eyes and your mind, you will see the historical importance that had for many years this castle. Although only remain the ruins, its size is imposing. The difficult and complex that was to build it at that time and with the technology they had. The sunsets are breathtaking and if on their Cliff dive you will see much more beauty. For my was a very good visit.
