I am a frequent Caracas visitor and was a bit dissapointed in the deterioration of this landmark. Service quality is below average, and the offering has diminished. It is still THE BEST attraction in Caracas by far if you really want to get a good view (both of the city and the coastline). I hope it gets back to its... More

An entertaining short trip you would never imagine so close to a large city. Great view of Caracas, great climate and as short walk away from a view of the ocean.

Going up to the Avila mountain is an exciting trip. With family, for a romantic moment, to explore. It is a most go!

The view from Cerro "EL Avila" is really special. It takes just 15 minutes to reach the top with the new cable car. Locals tend to go in masses during the weekend and large queues can be seen at the ticket counter. If you are staying in Caracas, definitely it worth it to pay a visit. Once at the top... More

The trip itself is a comforting getaway from a troubled city, once on top, cool weather and magnificent views are worth the lenghthy line-up taken. Be aware that good food or restaurants will not be available unless you go to nearby town called Galipan. Yet, latin fast food fare is an option. Relax, take it easy, get away from crowds... More

Sorry to be so pessimistic but numbers do not lie, in this country only last year were 25,0000 people killed by violence, the streets are really dangerous with robbers, kidnaping and many others crimes are present So, DO NOT travel to this country

The view of Caracas from Cerro El Avila is spectacular, and the ride with the teleferico makes it different, but its lack of maintenance makes it dangerous ... I strongly recommend to go up with a SUV 4x4 ...

It's a terrific teleferico. But, look out: you may queue for hours until the gates open for passengers. Our first try: we stood in a hot, sweaty, unsheltered line for about an hour and decided to quit. So we took a second bite at the queue with an umbrella and cold water to cool down with. We queued for 3... More
