Caracas image

Caracas has a pleasant climate due to its position high in the hills above the coast. The city fills several valleys, and is about an hour from the international airport. Apart from a few remnants of its colonial past, a cable car up the mountain and some interesting handicraft shops, there is little to attract or detain the tourist.
