On your next trip to Venezuela’s capital make sure to consider our Caracas car hire services. Caracas is the country’s largest city and while it may not be the country’s top tourist destination, most preferring to see the country’s wonderful natural attractions the city is a fascinating place to explore.
The capital doesn’t have its own airport instead it is served by the Maiquetia Airport called Simon Bolivar Airport. The airport is located twenty-five kilometers away from the city’s center and is connected to it via taxis and bus routes, but your best choice by far would be to employ our Caracas car rental services and have a car waiting for you at the airport as soon as you land so that you can reach your destination as quickly and in as much comfort as possible.
The city is located in a beautiful valley being overlooked by Mount Avila which also separates the city from the Caribbean Sea.
Once in the city, Caracas has quite a few sights and attractions to offer its visitors starting with La Plaza Bolivar which can be found close to the centrally located Metro Capitolio. The square features statues of Simon Bolivar as well as Congress and other government buildings.
Of course you may want to visit Bolivar’s birthplace and that is La Casa Natal de Simon Bolivar. The building is amongst the very few well-preserved colonial building housing some great paintings and a museum.
Another interesting location to see is the Universidad Central de Venezuela. The campus was designed by the country’s most famous architect, Carlos Raul Villanueva, it’s a sprawling complex featuring a great mix of 1950s and 1960 architecture blended with art.
Right next to the Central University there’s the Jardin Botanico, a very well-kept garden featuring a stunning array of tropical plants and trees.
The Parque del Este is a very large park which includes many unexpected attractions from a simple park such as a planetarium, a small zoo and of course a cafe.
These are just a few of the attractions that the city has to offer its visitors and you can visit these and so many more with the help of our Caracas car hire services.
