Rio Chico and San José are villages, both important points of attraction for the domestic tourism, mainly on weekends and holidays. These villages were important cocoa producers in colonial times, especially during a great part of the 18th century.

In Rio Chico that used to be called Little Caracas, you can still admire fine houses, relics from its colonial past. Nowadays this area is highly cherished by the inhabitants of Caracas and its surrounding areas because of its attractive beaches, creeks and the Tacarigua Lagoon National Park. (Parque Nacional Laguna de Tacarigua)

If you go boat riding through the creeks you can admire beautiful vacation houses and chalets, as well as small buildings along the banks. Skiing and fishing are good alternatives too. There is also a near by golf course.

Tacarigua de La Laguna is situated at the north-eastern part of Rio Chico. It is a fishing town that gave its name to the surrounding lands, officially declared National Park in 1974, to protect this ecologically important zone. Its inhabitants live on the abundant fishing from the lagoon and working as tourist guides, riding you along the creeks surrounded by luxuriant vegetation crammed with gorgeous exotic birds and fine beaches.

Inside the park there are the most attractive beaches of the area, reachable only by boat, since most of the year water does not allow the access by car.
