Top Rated Attractions in Caracas

Search Radius (Miles)
El Ávila National Park

December marks the start of Caracas' dry season, and it is a good time to escape the city for the mountains. El Ávila range looms north of the city and the park is surprisingly accessible from downtown. Hikers and walkers will find more than 200 kilometers (124.27 miles) of trails, but a cable car, or teleférico, climbs the imposing slopes in a quick 12-minute ride for those desiring a faster ascent. On clear days, El Ávila Peak offers breathtaking views of Caracas and the Caribbean.

El Teleférico

Although a flock of tourists go up the Cerro El Avila every day, you may only want to reach its summit, or the coast on the other side of the mountain. In that case, Caracas has two cable car routes to offer you: Maripérez-El Avila and Maripérez-Macuto. The Maripérez-El Avila route has always been the most popular, taking you to El Avila's ice rink, the disco and the luxurious Hotel Humboldt. You'll overlook the Caracas valley on one side and the Caribbean on the other from a height of 2153 meters (7063.64 feet). The cars leave every 15 or 30 minutes, according to the number of passengers.

Galería de Arte Nacional (GAN)

This museum was opened in 1976, and is devoted to the preservation and exhibition of works by Venezuelan artists from Colonial times to present day. The Permanent Collection includes relevant names from the 19th Century like Arturo Michelena, Cristobal Rojas, Martin Tovar y Tovar and Tito Salas; among later artists are Francisco Narvaez and Hector Poleo, plus a vast selection of works by Armando Reveron. Present Venezuelan art is represented by Alejandro Otero, Francisco Hung, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Jacobo Borges, Regulo Perez, Meyer Vaisman and other great creators. The museum also presents temporary exhibitions coming from public or private collections.

Children's Museum of Caracas

This famed museum is a recreational as well as a learning center, that focuses on an all-round development of kids. At this museum, workshops, activities and a plethora of exhibitions breaks the notion of education being a boring and dull concept.

La Plaza Bolívar

In every Venezuelan city and town, the main square is named after Simon Bolivar. Caracas' Plaza Bolivar is not only the center of civic, political, commercial, social and tourist activity, but it stands on the grounds where conqueror Diego de Losada founded the city in 1567; the capital of Venezuela grew out from four corners. Public buildings like the Capitolio Nacional, the Catedral Metropolitana, the Foreign Office and the Palacio Municipal surround the square. But, the real meaning of Plaza Bolivar is found in its energy, which keeps Caracas alive.
