Reviews Caracas

Level 100
Overall rating: 6
Overall Guide:  Hiking is one of the common outdoor activities in Caracas. Hikers often frequent Parque Nacional El Avila, a mountainous national park filled with trails. Changes in temperature and afternoon rains act as hindrances.
Some of the must-see architectures in Caracas are Iglesia de San Francisco, Catedral Metropolitana de Caracas, Panteon Nacional, Museo Sacro de Caracas, Casa Natal and Museo Bolivar, El Capitolio Nacional, Jardin Botanico and Hacienda Floresta. Ciudad Universitaria is regarded as a masterwork of modern architecture and art.
For gastronomical delicacies, visit Las Mercedes ... More which boasts of some of the best restaurants. Some good cafes and restaurants can also be found in Altamira, Parque Central and Centro Sambil.
Pubs, bars and pools are commonly found in Las Mercedes. The Juan Sebastian Bar entertains the in-house crowd by playing live jazz.

Overview
Neatly snuggled into the foothills of a narrow mountain located on Cordillera de la Costa Central is Caracas, the capital of Venezuela. The Caracas valley is separated from the Caribbean coast by an approximately 15 km expanse of El Ávila National Park.
The annual average temperature is over 20°C, with the average of the warmest temperature being 24°C. Hail storms have been historically observed in Caracas. But, electrical storms are more common, particularly between June and October.
The originally peaceful ethnic tribe of Caracas made many unsuccessful attempts to gain independence from the invading Spaniards. Caracas finally became independent in July 1811, but was ravaged by an earthquake the next year.          
Caracas has about 3,000,000 inhabitants. Owing to its history, the racial and ethnic composition is diverse.
