  • Ideal for draining stress and bad energies. During the week's going to vacuum, but on weekends can happen it full. Many people climb by Sabas Nieves (Altamira) and exercise on the bars when they come up. If your plan to get beyond crossing the mountain until you reach the Humboldt, provisions for breakfast, lunch, hydration and proper shelter to in certain areas is cold. GO WITH LARGE GROUPS WHO KNOW THE ROAD. PREVENTS GO SUN @ SINCE IN SOME PARTS OF THE MOUNTAIN THERE IS NO SIGNAL

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.
