Semana Santa – Puerto La Cruz

Ok, so I showed the Caracas bit of my Semana Santa trip back home. But what is Semana Santa without a visit to the beach? So here we go, the promised beach pictures.

The visit to Puerto La Cruz launched off with a visit to El Bulevard de la Empanada, where we had our share of empanadas de queso, pollo, mixtas, and cazon (a little shark found in Venezuela).

Everyone indulges

And poses

Mmmmm


Do you want to try a bit?

Then through El Paseo Colon driving to La Marina


And we are off!


We went to La Piscina that first outing


There was ice cream this time too


And some snorkeling


That night we had dinner at Tio Pepe, delicious!


The next day we went to Puinare


Everyone and their mother was there


There was even a beach concert with Vos Veis, a Venezuelan pop group


And Er Conde del Guacharo made his appearance as well


We still had a good time


Dinner at Mango’s Cafe in Plaza Mayor that night


The next day we headed back to Caracas, not without the visit of some friends



The road back is quite picturesque, and of course we made our stops for goodies


And again, everyone and their mother was going back to the city


It took us about 6 hours to get back to Caracas, but it was definitely worth the trip!
