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.
