Even though there were only about 30 people waiting in a queue, I would have had to wait for more than two hours in the heat. I quit, no thanks.

Great way to escape the buzz of Caracas and get some amazing views of both the city and the Caribbean.

A ride to the Cerro Avila with a magnificent view of the huge city of Caracas. Nothing expensive, although the staff is not properly friendly. Do not miss!
