  • If you were as a child, you perhaps disappointment; many things have changed, others are not. If this is first time, you will have a pleasant experience! Whatever the case, still is a park that you will be able to enjoy a lot. TIP: If you're in a small group, you must join large groups to enjoy the presentations. Food: The Plains have point, the Zulia do not (have no signal, x being the highest point). Souvenirs: All cash, terrible in our current situation.

  • Venezuela is Awesome! I stopped listening to all the crime stories because here in the US we have more crimes commited in any one city than all of Venezuela combined. I travelled all through the mountains and the cities without any issues. Beautiful country and people.

We had lunch in the Zulia, very good food and very attentive the. Waiter, there are point of sale. I recommend go well desayunado for everything you need to walk.
