Parque Nacional el Avila, Caracas

4.7
#2 of 8 in Outdoors in Caracas
Near Caracas, Parque Nacional el Avila is surrounded by a mountain range and the sea. Ideal for relaxing, cycling, hiking, or mountain-climbing, the park has you covered no matter what your favored exercise. Due to the high altitude, you may find yourself out of breath rather quickly, so take it easy and drink plenty of water. Remember--the higher you go, the better the views. Plenty of ruins left over from Spanish colonization provide ideal places to rest and snap a few photos.

  • Really spectacular, magical. I recommend it widely. My kids enjoyed it to the fullest and of course we adults gave us that deserved stroll through the wonderful Avila Venezuela, skating on ice also was great. Would that more it is possible?

  • Especially for athletes. And those who love to be in contact with her and leave a little of the chaos of the city, just a few minutes, is within the reach of everyone. Also is accessible via cable car or via Galipán in cart. That Yes, remember you have to take care of it. Do not leave garbage irrigated, please, pick it up in bags and bounce it to reach the city. Do NO harm to any animal, is a mountain and National Park, therefore there are animals like snakes that you should just avoid them, not kill them. Nor to any feed. They can raise people of any age, depending on the way they choose. Spend from 2 hours to camp in it. Via cable car Galipán or can be posadas and small food businesses or some good restaurants overlooking the Sea (by the side of la Guaira). Wear comfortable clothes, raincoats or overcoats, it depends on the time. It is the lung of Caracas, we must take care of it!

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.
