  • It is part of the history that few people know about and that few can feel. It is an awesome site, located in the mouth, in the middle of entrance of Lake maracaibo. It was besieged by pirates, and great story to tell, to get there, have to go to san rafael in the wet and the port take a boat that moved between several islands to this part of land that looks like an island, but it is not part of the Gulf... It is a populated area. If it is very hot.. .there that go with fresh clothing.

  • Nice Castle, nice place... but the guide service should improve a lot. And there must be a deal without distinction to all tourists. That best treat Castro Cuban nationals.
