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!

My advice: Take the teleferico when you are coming down from El Avila (no waiting lines up there). Going up, you'll have to wait half a day to get on it. Lines are long and slow, mostly mornings. If you want to go up El Avila, it's better to take a car. You can hire a transportation service outside Hotel... More

The Caracas Aerial Tramway ascends El Ávila Mountain within El Ávila National Park, in Caracas, Venezuela. The park area at the top of the mountain is a wide walkway along the ridgeline. Several sellers have set up food or handicraft kiosks. There is also a restaurant and ice skating rink, an enormous Venezuelan flag waving in the breeze, and the... More

Assuming that you must visit Caracas (and dare to do it), then if you want to take a leisure day, a visit to Avila mountain using the "teleferico" (cable car) is a good bet. Taxis to and from the starting terminal are easy to find. Once in the teleferico, the trip takes about 30 min and all during the ascend... More

A nice view of the mountain. At the top we can find installations that should be upgraded or working. The walk is very nice

I hate heights. I am deathly afraid of cable cars. Why do I do this to myself? The world may never know... I had a mini panic attack on the way up as soon as I felt the height, but once I was able to calm down, the views are amazing. The cable cars only fit about 10 people, so... More
