Taxi / Bus to Choroni
You can go to Choroni in auto but you must be careful since the way is realy narrow and with lot of curves So I would advice to drive slowly for the first time.
If you do not go in auto, you have to get to the terminal in Maracay City and take a cab or bus to the town. They are available everyday.

Getting to the beaches............
At the Embarcadero is were you take the Peñeros go to the different beaches…….
A Peñero to the beaches can cost around of 60.000Bs (30$) but it varies from the distance of the beach that you are going. The price it is a roundtrip and for the trip. Not by person, what I recommend is to make groups of 4 people and the cost will by 15,000Bs (7$) by person
Getting to choroni…………….
You can go driving or by bus, the way is very interesting, ones you get to Maracay you have to past a mountain that it calls the National park Henri Pittier it will take you 1 hour and half to get to Choroni. The road it has a very nice landscape it is forest vegetation and changes.
However the way is very narrow, the way have closed curves, in the other side it is a precipice. At several points only one car can past, what they do it is to touch bugle, to warn the conductors that you are passing. It is scary I recommend not to speed go slowly and to enjoy the way Choroni is worth the trouble well
