Laguna de Mucubaji

Reviewed By Inga_Brauneis - Maracaibo, Venezuela

We had the chance to visit the lagoon with a tour group and it is a beautiful landmark everyone must visit. You can enjoy horseback rides, see the local flora named "frailejon" and take beautiful pictures.
We were very lucky because shortly after we arrived the fog started to come down and other groups that arrived later were not able to enjoy it as much as we did. We recommend going on sunny days because when the fog takes over you can't see anything and it's not worth it.

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 -.

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.

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.

Jardines Ecologicos Topotepuy

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

Peribeca

Reviewed By Negruro - San Cristobal, Venezuela

I bet that Peribeca used to be a nice, bucholic and easy going little andean town. And it should be this way by weekdays today. So avoid the big city non sense that is transplanted during weekend to this beautiful "pueblito"

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...
