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 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. Put Medanos de Coro and other Coro attractions into our Coro visit website , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • As national park and is a natural attraction very peculiar since it fails in all the countries in its dense sand dunes can practise sandboard without having a high degree of experience definitely a site that you can not miss as Venezuelan.

  • It is an obligatory stop to spend for choir. The views are spectacular and peaceful. It would be good idea to promote the development of activities such as extreme sports.

  • Okay so the children know the desert... and nothing more... .. that hurts that the State or the Government do not invent something to make this attraction of more optics... some kind of mobile posada... pool... car rental, etc. Unfortunately people who are are not the most appropriate to provide solutions... Another issue are the street vendors... are at the level of annoyance to clog... have to buy you obligated... greetings

  • Beautiful natural monument of the city of Coro. You can not miss the step here if you visit this city. It is a magnificent landscape. Extra points if you visit at dusk. However care must be taken with offenders once the sky gets dark.

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.
