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.

It is amazing because from a big city like Caracas in Venezuela, the people can take a cable car with departure to the Avila mountain, here there is a good temperature and a big view to the Caribbean sea and to the Caracas City.

This is an excellent way to view the whole of Caracas. The cable car ride is about 15 minutes and the views are breathtaking. If you have a fear of heights, then it could be a bit dicey on the ride up. The views at the top are wonderful, seeing Caracas on one side and the ocean on the other.... More
