All reviews cable car ice skating el avila hot chocolate nice view small town minute ride nice trip stay overnight great climate sandwich enjoy the view rainy day couple of hours early in the morning cream gondola
Short trip to the top of the Avila mountain. You can see a really nice view of the city of Caracas. When you get to the top, they're shops with local snacks, hot cocoa etc and sometimes, fun activities for kids and adults are hosted...More
You wouldn't want to leave Caracas without taking the Teleferico. It's cheap, fun for all the family, and takes you to the top of the Avila (well almost) without you having to break sweat. If you have the time and the energy I would recommend...More
It's an experience in its own class:
No matter what you eat or drink ('tho' Sibaris' hamburguers worth the trip, and the various crafts licours are wonderful with the climate and the view), just being there with beautifull Caracas at one side, the Caribean in...More
The place is actually pretty beautiful, but take care!
1- There is no water in the bathrooms.
2- No toilet paper also.
3- The vendors on the top of the mountain will NOT accept dollars.
The cable car ride itself is pretty cool also, but...More
This is actually a really nice break from the city and not just because of escaping from the street chaos but to experience a very different part of Caracas with an amazing vegetation and at 2800 meters and with an spectacular view across the mountains...More
It's a beautiful cableway of 3.5 km above the jungle, it's very, very high and kind of scary if you are afraid of heights but is very modern and secure, be sure to bring a jumper, I was wearing shorts and a sleeveless top and...More
I can't believe why some people gives it three stars because of the wheather (like if this review is to qualify it), that is just so stupid... The cable cart is fast, you can enjoy the sights and views, the sound of birds or wind,...More
Could imagine it would be great on a good day. Some pretty good city views on the way up before you hit the fog. Went on a week day and no queues. Cost was 10,000 Bs although sign at ticket office also said USD $15...More

There are many places where you can find massage services. Just Google "masajes antiestres en Caracas". I could recommend one of them,the only one that I know and the only one that I use since it is very close to my home: Corphus Mentis: The place itself is very relaxing and in a good suburb of the city (La Trinidad). The address is very easy to find either in Google Maps or Google earth. Look for Hacienda la Trinidad. Corphus Mentis is very close to it. You can also find their telephone in the yellow pages or visiting their page..
A very useful hint: Caracas, and Venezuela as a whole, can be one of the most expensive countries in the word or one of the cheapest !!!. If you use your credit card you will be facing the first case 1 USD = 12,30 Bolívares(BsF) at the official rate. If you bring cash it will definitely be the second: 1USD = aprox 190BsF. at the black market. But you being a tourist will have to satisfy yourself with more like 170.
So make your own calculations: a good massage will cost in a very decent place between 800 to 1000BsF .
Hope you enjoy your visit.
