Venezuela has few touristy things to do so this cable car Was a welcome activity. The cars are frequent and the trip up not too long.

I use teleférico very regularly as I hike cerró el Ávila 4 to 5 times per month and the fastest way to go back to the city is by teleférico. The design, views and comfort are very good but the lack of maintenance councerns me very much regarding cabins, wiring, restrooms etc

A real surprise are the well maintained capsules if you consider that this is a country with zero budget for tourism. Take a break out of the city, this is the perfect way to do it. You can go up and grab a quick lunch in one of the stands. Try to bring water with you unless you want to... More

The Teleferico is one of the great places to go in Caracas. The view getting there and once there is breathtaking. Careful if you are afraid of heights, but be assured that the cable car is fully secured and with no issues.

beautiful surroundings, lovely atmosphere on the 2km mountain. One of the longest hanging rides I have seen. Be prepared to wait a couple of hours in the line. Get sun protection.
