#1 of 9 in Parks in Caracas
#Nature / Park, #Must See
Combining three distinctly different natural areas, Generalísimo Francisco de Miranda Park allows tourists to see the city from a different side, with locals going about their daily lives. Take a walk through the park to see a grassy field, dense forest, and landscaped garden. A stroll along paved garden paths brings you to water features and murals made of tiles. Notice groups of runners using the park as their workout space, picking their way through the  sometimes crowded pathways. Bring some money if you're interested in shopping for handicrafts at the street market or tasting local foods.

  • This beautiful landscape is located in the heart of the city. Already has more than 50 years of built by Carlos Guinand and was planned by one of the most famous landscape of the world, Roberto Burle Marx and Associates Fernando Tábora and John Stoddart. In this magical space you can enjoy a walk to observe 4 different types of flora, brought from various places of Venezuela. Also carried out kinds of yoga, karate, meditation, among many others... where you can share with hundreds of people and moments of relaxation. The Planetarium, where at certain times carried out presentations of astronomy is located. There are several restaurants as well as the Corocoras, located in the heart of the Parque del Este, where attention is warm, there are variety of food and landscape, to fall in love. Enjoy and appreciate this space, this lung that helps breathing city. Its history and creation give a unique value and that is natural heritage of our beautiful country, Venezuela

  • There are things like the terrarium and Planetarium operated more or less. All deteriorating, the animals are not in top condition or well fed. Do not charge much for what people does not value it and unable to pay the maintenance. Good to do exercises and distraction to the family.

  • This park was one of the most iconic places in Caracas, full of families, activities and zoo animals. Due to the poor maintenance and lack of funds the park is now highly deteriorated. It has also become a place of many thefts and it is very unsafe.
  • I saw two teenage boys muggingg an old man and the national guard did nothing. Apparently this happens a lot there.
  • It used to be great. Poor maintenance now
  • Great place to exercise, meditate, walk around or just read a book.
  • For those of us who run it's heaven every morning. Some decay but hard to give it less

Where to stay in Caracas

Safety is the number one priority when choosing an area to stay in Caracas. The city has many no-go zones, although accommodations are typically located in safer areas. Nevertheless, it's worth asking your hotel receptionist for advice before you go out on your own. Caracas offers a range of mid-range and luxury hotels at surprisingly high prices, with few budget hostels available. The areas around Bulevar Sabana Grande and farther east are generally considered the safest options of foreign travelers.
