    Could be in better condition, but as everything the Venezuelan government takes they ruin it, good place to visit, best views of Caracas and the sea (La Guaira). It cost $20 each to ride the cable That's the tourist rate. Locals pay a lot less so try to pass as local. Trip up to the top is spectacular so is worth the price. The top is a bit like a fair. Lots of food stalls & entertainment. Views very good but try to go on a nice day otherwise can be cloudy. Well worth doing
    At the top you can go on a Toyota 4x4 to eat at several restaurants in converted houses in the town of Galipan it is expensive but the view,the ambiance and the place overcomes it

    If you like hiking this is the right place to go in Caracas. You´ll enjoy of a great walk as you leave behind the city´s noise and, when you are high enough, a great view of Venezuela´s capital. The only thing is that during weekends is very crowded, so you might like other hiking routes to explore Avila National Park.

    Located in the affluent neighborhood of Altamira, this place is a nice place to people watch. You can just sit down and watch the day go by while observing what the surroundings have to offer.

    It's located adjacent to the metro and the tall monument is beautiful. I was there in December 2019 when it was lit up with the colors of the Venezuelan flag and it was beautiful to watch. There was a concomitant food expo event occurring.

    Overall, a nice relaxing place to walk, sit down, kick a soccer ball around or my favorite activity: people watching!

    UCV is a fairly big campus
    I was only at the Aula Magna area

    There are students milling about, and also security guards around.

    the monument avenue will look better if only there is water in the reflecting pool

    many locals come here to bike, jog, and there are also many military personnel around.

    it is a safe area to be during day time but try to leave before night falls.

    It is a contact zoo, with small and medium sized animals, that you can actually touch, pet and feed. It is very clean and you can spend a nice day with your family and kids in a whole new experience.

    It is no what it used to be, still we walk in the morning there when possible.Always go with someone or stay with the Groups of People on the main Roads Don’t go alone on the secondary roads. It can be dangerous.This is a big park in the east side of Caracas, although it is currently very neglected. It opens at 5 am in the morning, for those who want to exercise early, and closes early at 4:30 pm but ussually after 12m there is hardly anybody,so do not go in the afternoon alone. You can walk, run, do yoga, enjoy fresh air, There used to be a Zoo but I guess the animals died,but there are many Guacamayas flying all over in the morning it is worth to see.

    This market has history and tradition. They sell all kinds of fresh veggies and fruits, as well as meat, fish, and dairy products. You can also find house utensils, everything you need, from a small needle, to a big butchers knife !!

    Visiting the Panteon Nacional really takes you back in time to reflect on the enormous effort made by special people who simply said no more of suppression from king they would not even meet ever in their lives. This army is the only army created to liberate and not invade.
    Besides the paintings on the roof are extraordinary. Painted by Tito Salas. Made in huge canvases these have may not envy any European painter of that time. Spectacular! there is a guide that has been there all his life and this is very inspiring. Beautiful.

    It hold a large collection of art masterpieces. A lot of rooms are closed though. What a pity. They need to open more rooms. No permanent exhibitions here.
    It has the potential to be one of the best museums in Latin America.
