“Great place for tourism”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Both caraquenos and outsiders enjoy the 20 minutes trip and the great view from cerro Ávila (or Waraira-repano it's native name).

Since Caracas is isolated from sea by "el Ávila", you can view both, the city and the sea, just by walking a few yards south or north.

There are a few restaurants up there, and many food kiosks offering typical "sandwich de pernil" (pork meat sandwich) and churros. You'll also find donuts, beverages, hot chocolate and other snacks.

The weather is colder than Caracas and in the afternoon (after 5 pm) it can get really cold. So a jacket or sweater is a good idea.

There's a small ice skating site.

I suggest not going up in a rainy day since the view will be blocked by clouds.

“The best vien of Caracas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

El Avila is a must visit place in Caracas, I recommend go up in the afternoon and go down at night, so you can have the best views of Caracas. You must go with coats because its cold at the top of the hill

“Quick getaway from the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

The very modern cable car ride was short, and it was nice to see such a noisy city from far away. Made Caracas seem peaceful. Up on the mountaintop we were pleased to see cultural events and good street food, with a few sit-down restaurants. A nice way to get out of the city without having to deal with traffic!

“A nice way to spend a few hours.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

The weather at the top is chilly, which was enjoyable. There were many street performances and shops selling food, and the views are lovely. Go early to avoid very long lines.

“See The Wonders...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

...of Caracas.

Okay, well, maybe not all the wonders, since it really depends on the weather. If it is cloudy, then just don't go since it is terribly boring up there if you can't see anything. It's just a concrete path. However, the natural wonder of seeing over the city and also over the seas is amazing!
