One of the most beautiful spots in all of Venezuela! Based at the foot of the Andes Mountains you have a nice climate (perfect for hiking) and wonderful views. Take advantage of having Pico Bolivar (Venezuela's highest peak) right nearby. Also, don't be reluctant to take in the night life that exudes fun in this part of the country. You won't be disappointed.
