At one hour jet flight from Caracas, Maracaibo is today the country’s largest urban centre after Caracas, and the most important port of Venezuela. Although the region was explored as early as 1499 and Maracaibo was founded in 1574, the town only really began to grow in the 18th century as the result of trade with the Netherlands Antilles. Maracaibo is probably the only city in venezuela where you can still see local AmerIndians (Goajiros and Yukpas) in their native outfit, and sometimes with their faces painted with a dark pigment. Maracaibo sits on the strait linking Lago de Maracaibo with Golf of the Venezuela; the lake with (5.019 miles2) is the biggest in the South América.


Set at the base of the curiously shaped Península de Paraguaná, Coro is a pleasant and peaceful town, 130.000 people. Thanks to a large university it has a noticeably cultured air. Founded in 1527, it was the earliest town on the American continent. Coro has some of the best colonial architecture to be found in the country, and declared by U.N. Universal Human Historic Patrimony, and National Historical Monument by Venezuelan Government in 1950’s. The Cathedral was quick to follow and in 1531 established the Episcopal See, the first Archdiocese to be founded in the New World. We’ll apreciate the Dutch-Baroque influences in the local architecture by it proximity and old trade relations with it seafront Dutch neighors, the islands of Curacao, Bonaire and Aruba.
