Puerto Nuevo in Yaguaracual is a neat find. Not much is happening there any more but if you go early in the morning you can surely find a boat to take you out to the islands. But the spot itself is just magical. It's a tiny natural bay surrounded by mangroves that looks across to the other side of the peninsula. Neat just to stop and see.Look for...more
Since Mochima is the land of views, my restaurant pics are both based on food and view. And both are great here.Located on a peninsula you can see directly into the water at coral and fish swimming far below. The rest of the view is uninhabited park. How often have you eaten at a place like that? Yeah, these are the type of views they hang on the...more
Very good food. They have lots of typical dishes and VERY rare homemade drinks. I do recommend that you try some. I ask the waiters what they like and haven't been let down yet. Don't miss the view at sunset. It sets right over the islands off Puerto la Cruz and Guanta and is breathtaking. Maybe have a nice Paballon and sit at the edge of the...more
Can't visit Cumana without having an Oyster Cocktail by the Ocean in the Perimetral Avenue, we had them every day, 10 Oz of Fresh Oysters, Shrimp, Octupus, Mussels and other sea delicacies, for the less adventurous try just lime juice but if you feel like kicking it up try the cocktail sauce they will prepare right in front of you, and you even get...more

Between Maturin and Cumana is a range of mountains where coffee beans and tropic fruits are farmed, to be exported at the port of Cumana. Along the highway are some interesting villages with very old mission buildings and interesting small colonial plazas. The road over to Cumana is frequently covered by landslides, a situation we came upon during...more
La mejor manera de llegar a Araya es a través de los peñeros conocidos en la zona como "Tapaitos" (son unas lanchas cubiertas).
Son económicos y muy rápidos. Se toman en la ciudad de Cúmana, y es la forma ideal de viajar si se pretende ir y regresar el mismo día. Uno puede estacionar el vehículo en el embarcadero de Cúmana.
La otra forma de llegar es bordeando la península de Araya en vehículo, pero el recorrido puede tardar unas 3 horas.
También salen unas chalanas que transportan carros y personas hasta el muelle de Araya, con la desventaja que los vehículos son salpicados con agua de mar, ya que van a descubierto.
