Tucacas

4.4
National Parks · Water Sports · Outdoor Activities
Known for its proximity to Morrocoy National Park, Tucacas is a town of just over 30,000 people, with an economy almost exclusively geared toward international ecotourism. The history of the town dates back to the end of the 15th century, with the arrival of the conquistador Alonso de Ojeda; afterwards, it became a hotspot for smugglers and pirates. When coral reefs and attractive islets were discovered just off the coast, tourism in Tucacas boomed, leading to the protection of the marine and coastal areas as part of a national park.

Where to stay in Tucacas

Accommodations in Tucacas concentrate primarily on the peninsula that connects to the national park via a bridge. Here, find the town's main high-rise hotels, each offering varying numbers of additional facilities to go with its proximity to the main natural attraction of the area. More budget-conscious travelers will want to look at the "posadas" (guesthouses) situated a few streets back from the bridge. In addition, following Perimetral road north and south reveals a few more options, ranging from simple posadas with limited facilities to larger resort-style affairs.
