Mochima National Park

Created to protect Forests in the Turmiquire mountain range, Mochima National Park is a gorgeous refuge that comprises coastal and mountainous areas.

Reviewed By Lifevoyagers - South America

The village Mochima is a good base for the Mochima National Park (the website www.mochima.org (in Spanish) is about the national park rather than the village), if you stay here we can recommend Posada Girasol (see tripadvisor too). The village lies on a beautiful, huge and calm (!) laguna that is perfect for canoeing, make sure the little dive an canoe-shop in the 'main' street in Mochima is open to provide you with all you need, and from the little port or from Posada Girasol you can start for boat trips to see whole wonderful schools of dolphins in the open sea as well as to truly caribbean, catered (whole fried fish, lime, fried banana (tajada), arepas and salad) or uncatered Beaches that can only be reached by boat, as well as for diving or snorkeling. The Areperia and two to three restaurants in Mochima are all very good.

Centro de Arte Los Galpones

Reviewed By vicentequintero - Caracas, Venezuela

Excellent location, but the place is really boring. I have been to all the museums of Caracas and this is not really worth your visit. The Afroamerican Museum in San Bernardino (private) is way better than this.
The art galleries are boring. People are nice and well-mannered. The library is cool. Everything else here is better than the art galleries.
Good place to have a coffee and sit with your friends, but there are better museums to get in touch with the local culture. MAC is still better than this - even it is not what is used to be -.

Isla el Faro

Reviewed By fcgg - Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Even though very crowded, and getting to being annoying sometimes, El Faro is a beautiful place, with incredible aquamarine cool water. If you love crowds and party, this is the place for you. Get there around 2 pm, and stay as long as 6am. If, on the other hand, you don't, then drop by early the morning, and you will have this amazing place for yourself.

Saint Martin's Church (La Iglesia de San Martin)

At the center of town, Saint Martin's Church is a reminder of La Colonia Tovar's German history. The church's L-shape and stunning stained-glass windows make it well worth a trip.

Reviewed By Charlie T - Flagstaff, Arizona

The entire town is like a fairytale. Very nice architecture, beautiful properties, great German hospitality and food, and great views of the valley and Mountains.

Reviewed By Luis M - Caracas, Venezuela

Its a very nice and peacefull place to stay in a sunny day. Its about 40mins heading the south of the city. You can do bird, plants and flowers watching. There is a small place to eat (sandwiches) and be in touch with the nature and the outdoors

Casa Natal & Museo Bolivar

His birthplace and an adjacent museum honor Simon Bolivar, “El Liberator”, who achieved independence from Spain for Venezuela and other South American countries.

Reviewed By Flagelum-Dei - Caracas, Venezuela

This place is the original birth place of Simn Bolivar, but it was for many years used for many different things. some history lovers, rebuilt it and re-furnished it to give them a real 1800ish look and feel. The Guides are very kind and know many gossips form the time.
Nice visit, nice place. The Caracas Downtown is kind and nice recovered for the visitors. Well you may have some care and not get alone... use a local to guide your trip...thiis is true to many latinamerican places...
