Jan 1, 2012 - Venezuela - Coro

Nach ein paar Stunden Busfahrt kommen wir in Cord an, eine kleine Kolonialstadt im Westen Venezuelas, unterhalb der Halbinsel Paraguana gelegen. Wir checken in der Posada von Roberto und seiner Frau ein. Mitten in der City, ein altes Kolonialhaus, dass die beiden Künstler mit viel Kreativität und Farbe in ein Backpacker Hostel verwandelt haben. Direkt nach unserer Ankunft lädt uns Roberto zum gemeinsamen Silvesterabend in der Posada ein. Alle Gäste sollen etwas typisches aus ihrer Heimat kochen -bei uns wird es dann die Quiche Lorraine mit...

Feb 14, 2011 - Coro via Maracay & Valencia

A total travel day, Tim is a bit frazzled! It started out very fine once we reached the bus terminal and got a por puesto to Maracay. These drivers are very good (and fast), this time there was no rain - when we came over the mtn it rained half the way - and the views were great as well as appreciating the single lane, winding, curving, narrow road thru rain forest/dense Park Henri Pittier Visit Henri Pittier, really nice drive! However, once we reached Maracay the terminal things got very difficult. We asked our driver about buses to Coro...

Jul 6, 2009 - Coro

After an overnight sleeper bus to colonial town of Coro on the Caribbean coast and serving the Paraguana Peninsula, we made a beeline for delightful Casa de los Pajaros (House of Birds) pension and caught a few hours shut-eye. When we awoke it was 1 pm and the heat of the day - the whole city had shut down for siesta so we just took a stroll down the colourful main drag desigated a Unesco World Heritage site.

Feb 5, 2008 - Coro en omstreken

We zitten nondertussen al een weekje in Coro. We doen alles op tgemak, geen stress meer. Wel al enkele uitstapjes gemaakt. Zoals naar Adicora, een klein dorpje op het schiereiland hier vlakbij. het is er zogenaamd taxfree maar daar hebben we niet veel van gemerkt, toch niet aan de prijzen. Als je vanuit Coro een halfuurtje stapt kom je plots midden in de woestijn terecht. Dat is heel raar eigenlijk. je zit er letterlijk omgeven door duinen en zand en niks anders (buiten veel lokale bezoekers). Een uurtje met de auto rijden zit je dan weer...

Jan 16, 2007 - Coro

Further west of Caracas is Coro gateway to a few things; Sierra de San Luis, Médanos de Coro and the Peninsula de Paraguaná. I stayed at a really nice french run posada called El Gallo (the other buildiing not the main one) where I met Thoams and Manu from Germany. They were excellent. They told how they had stayed in the main building of El Gallo but the owners kids running wild and shouting the place down had forced to move. I asked them what reason they gave for wanting to move, they told me that they just told the owners that their kids...
