  • When I was a child I went with my family and what little I remember + seen and the discussion with the employees noticed that the crisis has hit. During the high season full hire, but in the low (when I was now) only have the basics. However, the warmth, good care and service of each one, manages to minimize any vacuum. It shows that everything has been done and maintained with love. The spaces are clean, cut grass and pruned trees. Even with much effort are building a new area: the State of Carabobo, where the Lord Charles welcomes and explains what will be new attractions. Don't forget to visit the radio and ask him to tell you the history of radio in Vzla! Gomez is still being interpreted by the Lord himself since 1991. Those who like can stay conversing with him after his presentation. It has a lot to tell! If you can, take advantage of dress-up and play like children! It is a magical and inspiring place. Full of antiques, gastronomy, culture, history and entertainment for the whole family. It is worth! ❤ Sale there is Pto in almost all the park sites, but recommend bring some effective porsia. They do not allow to enter food, but if water. The price of 300, children/third age 250 adults.

  • Although it is entertaining, after almost 15 years I thought to find something different or improvements, but it was not so. The years pass and it is still the same, for those unfamiliar, it can be fun.
