What you should absolutely know about Caracas

City highlights, food & drinks, expressions, weather, how to get there and how to get around

If you’re an outdoorsy type, book your Caracas day trips. The Parque Nacional el Avila is an absolute must see for its hiking and breath-taking views of the natural world. Scuba dive at the Latitud Scuba for views of the amazing underwater world or check out the interesting animals at the Expanzoo Expansion Centro Educativo Recreacional. Spend an entire day at the peaceful Hacienda La Trinidad, exploring the art galleries and cafes or hang out at the center of town in Plaza Bolivar and its beautiful cathedral. If you’re interested in learning more about traditional Venezualian culture, check out the Fundación Bigott and its many workshops

Spend some time at the Paseo de Los Proceres, enjoying the green spaces, or at the Casa Natal & Museo Bolivar, learning about history. Admire works of art at Centro de Arte Los Galpones and take the Teleferico high above the city

You’ll find almost every type of food in Caracas. Make sure to eat Arepa, the wonderful flatbread served with most meals. Fill up on Pabellon, the national dish of Venezuela, and Hallaca, a dish of fillings such as beef or olives wrapped in dough

In Caracas, Spanish is spoken. “Excuse me” is “¡ Perdon!” in Spanish and to ask someone if they speak English, ask “¿Habla inglés?” “¡Hola!” is “Hello” and “Hasta luego” means “Goodbye”. “Gracias” is “Thank you” and “Por favor” means “Please”

The city Caracas has a distinct rainy season, beginning in May and ending around November. During this time, the average temperature ranges from 60 to 70 degrees. The dry season, running from December to April, has highs of 80 degrees

When you exit the terminal, there will be lines of black airport taxis waiting to take travelers into the city center for around 35 Venezuelan bolívars. For safety reasons, it is recommended that you do not hire a private driver at the airport

Taxis are the most convenient way to get around Caracas. Buses offer another way to visit but have no official stops or pick-up points. In case, you can take the subway too. The Teleferico is perfect to see Caracas at once up in the sky
