Flanked by the wooded peaks of the Avila National Park lies the city of Caracas, Venezuela’s capital and gateway to the country.
Though often overlooked, Caracas itself has plenty to entice the visitor. A predominantly modern city which became prosperous during the oil boom of the 1960s, Caracas boasts some arresting architecture. The colonial influence is also apparent and the city remembers its most famous son, Simón Bolívar, in the main Plaza Bolívar.
Four hours by road west from the city, the lively colonial town of Choroní is nestled between the bird-watching paradise of Henri Pittier National Park and some lush Caribbean beaches, and an ideal base for exploring the area.
Morrocoy National Marine Park is further west and takes in an area of islands, islets and cays, draped in mangrove swamps with lots of marine birds.
Maracaibo is a steamy port city with some interesting architecture, and the nearby Laguna Sinamaica has many colourful houses on stilts dotted through its waters.
East of Caracas is the sublime Mochima National Park, a beautiful area of white sand beaches fringed with palm trees and good diving opportunities.
