Right in the city you can enjoy nature. Trekking, hiking, trail running. Excellent view, pure air, nice climate. Great for exercising and getting in shape as you climb the mountain periodically. Good getaway from hectic city.

This is one of my favorite places in all of Caracas. I have to say that it's becoming more dangerous to go over there and you must avoid hours when there's no people around. It's a great exercise to go up and you feel that...More
