Los Medanos de Coro, Coro

4.6
#1 of 10 in Things to do in Coro
One of South America's more idiosyncratic national parks, the sandy dunes of Los Medanos de Coro seem a world away from the bustle of the city center. The plant life here consists of little more than small thorny shrubs dotted around the landscape. What you do have at this coastal desert habitat are rolling sand hills reminiscent of a Middle Eastern desert--a result of the little to no rainfall this area receives. Keep an eye out for lizards, foxes, and rabbits scurrying around in their natural habitat. Make Los Medanos de Coro part of your personalized Coro itinerary using our Coro tourist route planner.

Where to stay in Coro

Just to the west of the World Heritage-listed old port lies the bulk of Coro's accommodation options. South of the airport, find boutique hotels offering luxury facilities alongside unpretentious high-rise options and budget-friendly guesthouses. Heading farther south along Avenida Manaure reveals a good set of motels offering excellent access to the region's rural areas on a number of well-connected highways.
