On living in Caracas

Caracas is the capital and largest city of Venezuela. It is located in northern Venezuela, near the Caribbean.

Caracas is not one of the top touristic destinations of Venezuela, and travelers often bypass the capital city in order to see the country’s amazing natural attractions. However, the Venezuelan capital can be a fascinating city to explore, replete with excellent art, food and a bustling nightlife.
