In the Venezuelan capital of Caracas, skyscrapers mingle with historic buildings and street markets, a stone’s throw away from outdoor attractions like Avila Park and Angel Falls.
Near our Caracas hotels, admire Ruben’s “Resurrection” painting in Caracas Cathedral, at Bolivar Square. See the famous works of art at the National Art Gallery and the Museo de Bellas Artes, and enjoy works by Venezuelan artist Jesus Soto in collection at the Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Sofia Imber.
You can visit the birthplace of Venezuela’s most famous military leader at the Casa Natal de Simon Bolivar; see the general’s gravesite at the 16th century Iglesia de San Francisco. Tour Venezuela’s national capitol building and the Miraflores Presidential Palace, and see the replica of the Christopher Columbus’ ship, the Santa Maria, at the Parque del Este. Only a short trip away from our hotels in Caracas, experience Angel Falls––15 times higher than Niagara Falls!
Enjoy hiking at Avila National Park, and golfing at Valle Arriba Golf Club. Find some unique souvenirs at Mercado Guajiro or the Hannsi Centro Artesanal markets, and sample cachapas, stuffed corn pancakes, at El Fogón. At nightfall, go dancing in the hip Las Mercedes neighborhood before returning to your Caracas accommodations.
