Large, pretty and interesting, with leisure and entertainment options as big as its beauty. A true must!
This sprawling, tree-covered expanse, the city's second-biggest park, is home to five lakes that attract typical regional birds. There's also a small zoo, where you can see some animals in captivity and others roaming free. But these are not the only highlights of the park, in which you can also rent a pedal boat, enjoy a stroll along its long pathways, or admire a replica of the ship that an early independence fighter used to return to Venezuela to call for revolution. The Humboldt Planetarium completes the picture, a place where people gather on weekends to enjoy Caracas' starry sky. The park is open from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m., so you should go early.
