Caracas, Venezuela is the capital of Venezuela. It is located in the north of the country, following the contours of a narrow mountain valley located on the Venezuelan coastal range.
The Valley is close to the Caribbean Sea, separated from the coast by a steep mountain range that rises above 8,000 ft; to the south lies further hills and mountains.
Caracas, Venezuela is a city of charm and grace, to which the visitor will be welcomed by people with a zest for life that is contagious.
There is a diverse, young, and lively population
that colors the streets of the capital with laughter, music, and unrestrained
enthusiasm. The sophisticated tastes of the 4 million inhabitants demand
an endless parade of boutiques and fine restaurants that crowd upscale
commercial areas. Caracas has an enormous cultural center known as
Bellas Artes, and it has museums and concert halls. This capital city is hip,
fast paced, and altogether cosmopolitan. At the same time, the people
exhibit a special warmth and hospitality.
Although Caracas is a sprawling
metropolis, its places of interest can be explored comfortably in a day
or two. Caracas can be divided into four principal areas of
interest: the downtown El Centro district and its monument packed Plaza
Bolívar; Parque Central and the surrounding Bellas Artes cultural
district; Las Mercedes and the Bulevar Sabana Grande, with its many boutiques
and restaurants; and the residential, wealthy suburbs of Altamira
and La Castellana. Few of the museums charge admission fees,
and there is much to see and learn in this South American capital.
