General Information about Caracas, Venezuela, for Meeting Planners
Caracas is Venezuela’s capital and its pride and joy, an attractive city for a conference or convention. It’s bordered by the western point of enormous El Avila National Park, which separates Caracas from the beaches and water of the Caribbean Sea. This geographical location puts the city square in the tropical savanna zone, which means it has mostly mild temperatures, many electrical storms and, once in a while, some cyclones. Some six million people live in the urbanized regions of the Distrito Capital, with many more residents in the satellite cities that surround it.

This is a popular tourist destination for both young and old, offering a museum, gardens, and fun, free activities such as classes and concerts. Another favorite visiting spot is the Museo de Arte Contemporaneo, not to be missed. You’ll see work by Miro, Matisse and Picasso, among many others.
