Welcome to Caracas Aerial Tramway

Ascending 1,000 metres, leaving the hustle and bustle of Caracas behind, the Avila Cable Car leisurely takes visitors up the lush green slopes of Avila Mountain, affording spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea and the sprawling cityscape. The 15-minute ride takes visitors to the summit of Mount Avila at 6889 feet (2100 metres), blessed with evergreen rainforest vegetation and mostly undeveloped natural beauty, as it's protected by El Avila National Park. A great hub of entertainment, the Avila Magica Park, at the access point of the Cable Car, is ideal for kids and families as it boasts an ice rink, live shows, restaurants and walkways. Lookout for Humboldt Hotel at the summit, don't forget a sweater or light jacket as the weather is usually cooler and keep to the paths as Avila Mountain is a fragile conservation area.

Avila Magica
Bs. 20,000
Spanish is the official language of Venezuela.

Venezuela's currency is the Bolivar Fuerte (VEF), which replaced the Bolivar (VEB) in January 2008. The revaluation means that Bs. 1,000 becomes Bs F 1. It is divided into 100 centimos. US dollars are the most favoured foreign currency so it is best to have cash and travellers cheques in US$. Foreign currency and cheques can be changed at bureau de change offices found in most larger cities and tourist destinations. Some banks (e.g. Banco Mercantil) will now buy US dollars for bolivares or sell bolivares against a foreign credit card; some major hotels will also swap US dollars for bolivares. Banks are usually open Monday to Friday. It is best to obtain local currency where possible before travelling, and bolivars should be exchanged before exiting Venezuela. There are ATMs in the cities (however some travellers have experienced problems using them), and most credit cards, including MasterCard/Eurocard, American Express and Visa, are accepted in major cities. Diners Club has more limited acceptance. Visitors are also warned that there is a serious problem with credit card fraud.
