Caracas Vacations

Venezuela's capital city, Caracas, lies in the north of the country, close to the Caribbean Sea, and in the shadow of Mount Avila. The city is full of art and culture, has top-quality food and nightlife scenes, and with natural beauty all around, it's a wonderful vacation destination. Check out some Caracas packages and bring a little Latin spirit into your life.

Major Attractions

La Plaza Bolívar lies at the heart of the city, and is named after Simón Bolívar, who helped Venezuela gain independence from the Spanish. Caracas Cathedral, some colonial buildings, and statues are located in and around the plaza. There are lots of museums near the plaza and along Avenue Bolívar and Avenue Mexico, including the Fine Arts Museum, and the Children's Museum. For some fresh air, head to Parque del Este, a large park with a lake, a zoo, and a planetarium. To get the most from your Caracas vacation, you should get out of the city for a while, and head to the coast or to Mount Avila. You can get there by bus, or look into car rentals in Caracas if you want a bit more freedom. The Teleferico cable car will take you up the mountain, where you'll have an amazing view of the city and the Caribbean.

Festivals and Events

One of the biggest festivals in Caracas is the Carnival, held on the Monday and Tuesday before Lent, in February or March. The whole city celebrates with huge street parades, water fights, and lots of food! The suburb town of El Hatillo holds an annual Music Festival in October, featuring jazz, folk, Latin, and rock music performances.
