Henri Pittier National Park

Choroni & henri pittier national park

Beautiful pristine beaches, inviting warm waters and beautiful sunsets – a wonderful spot to completely relax after a long trip or one of our special tours. If you like fresh seafood it is also worth the trip – great seafood dinners and exotic local cocktails. One of the closest and nicest beaches to Caracas. 

Wake early in the morning to radiant sunshine and prepare yourself for the day’s activities – all sorts of options are available – enjoy brisk walks in the nearby rainforest with it’s waterfalls or along the mile long pristine beach of Choroni (lined with palm trees). 

Activities can include a visit to a local coffee plantation, a boat trip to discover secluded beaches, dolphin watching, paddle boarding, snorkelling, diving or just simply spend the day relaxing on the beach. As an aside, dolphin sightings are a regular occurrence along this particular stretch of the Caribbean.
