Outdoor Activity
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. Make Parque Nacional el Avila a centerpiece of your Caracas vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Caracas tourist route planner.

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.
