Puerto La Cruz

(4.6/5 based on 190+ reviews for 2 attractions)
Things to do: beaches
A port town and home to one of the largest oil refineries in Venezuela, Puerto La Cruz was established by a set of 26 families from Margarita Island who opted to settle in the scenic bay. Though the economy owes much to "black gold," tourism in Puerto La Cruz mainly hinges on the town's status as a gateway to some of the region's national parks, both inland and in marine environments offshore. The coastline offers a diverse topography of beaches, rugged and rocky hills, and secluded bays, while the town itself, with a population of nearly half a million, boasts a lively commercial center with bars, shopping malls, and restaurants. Find what you're looking for from your Puerto La Cruz holiday, by planning the whole thing with us using our handy Venezuela travel itinerary planner.
