Land Where the Sun Rises, Firstborn of the American Continent

Sucre State's capital and one of the first areas settled by Europeans in mainland America, Cumana combines interesting historical attractions and the pleasant scenery of Venezuela's Caribbean coast. The first settlement established by colonists in present-day Venezuela, Cumana was founded in 1515 and has developed into a busy maritime city, with a lively and important port and a population of around 824,000. Sightseeing in Cumana will take you to well-preserved colonial-era buildings--including town houses, churches, and forts--now housing cultural exhibits displaying the history of the city. Meanwhile, the coastal areas offer wide sandy beaches around the curled bay area, popular with beach sports players and sunbathers.
