Puerto La Cruz Things to Do

Departs 9 am returns 4 pmWe go by the Cave de la Virgen. The first beach it stops at is called "El Faro". We stop there to swim or relax. Then we go to Isla Arapo,...

  • The Best Hamburgers in Puerto La Cruz

    I have another tip for this place under "nightlife". This is primarily a restaurant. They have a few TVs, but they're too small for people to seriously watch sports there. At around 10 pm on Wed, Thurs, Fri, and Sat they have live music. They play mostly salsa and merengue, but a few other types of songs as well. I swear their hamburgers are soooo...

  • Sports Bar and Restaurant

    This is a good restaurant and a good bar. They also have fast service on slow nights. We were able to have dinner there in under an hour, which is fast for Puerto La Cruz! The steak there was really good. They also have good martinis (cosmopolitans).

Puerto La Cruz Nightlife

  • Another Nightclub/Restaurant

    We went here for dinner and it seems like a pretty nice place. We didn't stay for the nightlife, because it wasn't a busy night (there was another concert happening the same night). Keep in mind that Bambuda Bar is the most popular place and on busy nights Brew Moon will probably be busy too. On slow nights, it may be very boring at places like...

  • Nightclub with 2 Rooms

    One Saturday we went here and it was really crowded (2 dance floors open). We went here on another Friday night and it wasn't very crowded at all (only one room was open). They have a nice outdoor patio area by the water. One of the dance floors plays a mixture of music: merengue, salsa, reggaeton. The other room plays techno/house music.You can...

  • Up-scale Club near Hotel Maremares

    This was the best club in Lecheria. I am the kind of person that likes to try different clubs. But in the end, I preferred to just spend every night (Wed, Fri, Sat) here. You can go anytime for dinner, but the club doesn't get happening until 11 pm. That is the case for most of the clubs in Puerto La Cruz. By about midnight they essentially have 3...

  • Salsa and Merengue Dance Club

    It appears to be a 30-something crowd with also some 20-somethings. This club is actually right next to Bambuda Bar. It is located next to the Golf Course (Campo de Golf). This place gets happening around 11 pm on Wed, Thurs, Fri, and Sat nights. I went in this club twice to check it out. I really don't like the club very much. All they played is...

Puerto La Cruz Local Customs

  • CLillard's Profile Photo

    by CLillard Written Nov 21, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You will find that you can't really classify each restaurant. Shambar serves sushi and italian. Sourdough serves Texmex, burgers, pizza, and italian. Bambuda Bar serves sushi, thai, chinese, japonese, and guess what ITALIAN. The Mediterranean restaurant serves Greek food and italian. You get the point. They have really good risotto in Venezuela, their Italian food is just really good.
