#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.

  • One of the experiences more rewarding that you can find in the city of Caracas, Capital of the Republic Bolivariana of Venezuela, the El Avila(Guaraira Repano) National Park. When talk about nature, ecological tourism, lovers of the outdoors who would like to be in contact with nature, cool climates, although charged also with impacts and extreme sports activities, this environment is perfect for such purposes.

  • I had time without attending the park up where the cable car arrives. I went years ago and I found that it has excellent attractions and good facilities. At last visit, I was a little disappointed by the low maintenance and unfinished works that still remain there. It is still a good place for recreation of the family escape a little of the hustle and bustle of the city
