Parque Nacional Henri Pittier - National Park - Venezuela

The Parque Nacional Henri Pittier is the oldest park in Venezuela, established in 1937, and is home to 43% of Venezuela’s bird species - 580 in the park alone - as well as monkeys, jaguar, puma, ocelots, armadillos, snakes, butterflies and more. Spanning 107,800 hectares to the west of Caracas, the park includes some of Venezuela’s nicest mainland beaches, as well as steep mountains and rich vegetation leading into the Andes. Good beaches include Bahía de Cata and Playa Cuyagua. Bahía de Cata, off the Limón highway, is one of the most beautiful mainland Venezuelan beaches with a good selection of restaurants and cabañas. Playa Cuyagua offers the best surfing in Venezuela and faces open sea. Windsurfing is also quite good here. The entrance fee is $1 per person. The park can be reached by highway from Caracas. The temperature ranges from 12ºC (54ºF) to 28ºC (83ºF). The dry season is from December to March and the rainy season is the rest of the year.
