We stayed at Playa Colorada

Mochima is famous for having alternately fine white beaches, at Playa Blance, and the red sand beaches at Playa Colorada. We stayed at a ethnically German owned hotel just up the hill from Playa Colorada and frequently enjoyed the morning and sunset at this beach. We had just come from the interior city of Maturin, by way of Cumana', which themselves are worth spending time. But, this point in the adventure tour of Venezuela, we were ready for some rest and relaxation on the Caribbean beaches of Venezuela. The islands and beaches of Parque Nacional Mochima are among the best of Venezuela. The waters are warm even after the sun has set.

We visited the pueblo of Mochima

The pueblo of Mochima is worth a stroll, where one can purchase local food and appreciate the fishing village lifestyle.

A boat ride on the Bay of Mochima...

At Playa Colorada and Mochima, it's possible to hire a boatman for a day trip out into the beautiful waters of this region.

    These places look wonderful!! Playa Colorada with tawny red sand looks really spectacular! And your images certainly contribute to get a better picture!

    I don't do beaches, but if I had to, this seems like a good choice. Nice page.
