Coro and it's sorroundings
In the page Colonial Coro we presented the architectural interest of the city than made it become a world heritage site. However the interest of Coro doesn't stop there. In this page we will take you to two completely opposed natural places, to Coro's port and to the waterfalls of "Hueque".
Xerophilous botanical garden
In this garden one of the most interesting in Venezuela, you will be able to admire numerous species from desert areas, beside others from different regions.
Since it is impossible to encompass all the splendorous beauty of the park in this reduced space; we invite you to see some additional pictures of the garden.
Dunes of Coro
One of the most popular places in Venezuela is Los Medanos de Coro National Park. The Medanos are dunes or sand hills that constantly move. Children as well as grown ups, enjoy climbing up and then rolling down to the bottom. An exhilarating harmless pleasure! Come and see it:
Vela de Coro
Pretty close to Coro you will find La Vela de Coro, a fishing port and a ferry terminal (to Aruba). On this spot Francisco de Miranda (famous independence hero) hoisted the Venezuelan flag for the first time. A monument commemorates this historic event.

Heading south from Coro, in a mountain called "Sierra de Coro", you will find several interesting small villages such as Curimagua, San Luis, Cabure, Pueblo Nuevo de la Sierra and further, close to Lara state, Churuguara.
In these mountains is located the Juan Crisóstomo Falcón national park, with its caves and water falls. A place that diserves a visit is "El Hueque", where you can enjoy a nice river bath.
