Cheap Flights to Caracas, Venezuela

See all departure points

Caracas is situated amid some of the most stunning mountainscapes you will ever see. Keen hikers will love the various scenic trails through the hills and valleys. An unforgettable way to see the scenery of this part of Venezuela, though, is to take the Teleferico: a cable car that swings you high above the mountains and the rich vegetation of the forests. Back down in the city centre, there are plenty of things for all kinds of travellers to do. Go to the Centro de Arte La Estancia and listen to some traditional Venezuelan music. The Centro de Arte Los Galpones is a brilliant place to view some beautiful contemporary art works and is a very peaceful environment. One of the key historical sites in the city is the Casa Natal & Museo Bolivar. Both of these honour Simon Bolivar, or 'The Liberator' ('El Liberator') who achieved Venezuelan independence from Spain. The house will show you where Bolivar was born, whilst the adjacent museum is perfect for learning more about the rich history of this part of Venezuela, and in particular its quest for independence.

When to fly to Caracas

The weather in Caracas is always lovely and warm, but to experience some real heat it's best to visit in the summer month of August. The dry season falls between December and April, so this is another desirable time to travel. Be aware, though, that travel during school holidays is likely to be more expensive than if you visit Caracas during off-peak seasons. There are plenty of religious and secular festivals in Caracas, so it is a great idea to time your visit to coincide with one of them. For example, in the first week of May each year, the city is home to the 'Cross of May' festival or Velorio de la Cruz de Mayo: a religious observance where citizens pay their respects to the holy cross with music, ceremonies, and food afterwards.

Getting around Caracas

Taxis are plentiful in Caracas, so you can hail one in the street whenever you need to get from A to B. Remember, though, that in this city the taxis do not have any meters, so it is best to agree on a price with the driver before you depart. It is usual to bargain with the driver, as it is customary for them to quote you an initial price far in excess of what they are willing to accept. Many travellers take advantage of specialised tour buses to explore the key sights of the city, whilst others find it more convenient to hire a car. There is also a metro system.
