"Morrocoy Venezuelan Paradise" Morrocoy by EdyTraveler

Morrocoy Travel Guide: 24 reviews and 64 photos

This is a national park located in Falcon State , in the North West coast of Venezuela. To get there from Caracas you travel by car trough ¨Autopista regional del centro ¨ (Highway) to the west of the country going trough Maracay, Valencia, El Palito, until you reach Tucacas Town. There are many posadas and Hotels there to chose. To go to the Beaches you only can get there by sea, there is no street , only a very bad road that ends in Mayorquine Beach but it´s not safe that way .You can, rent in the town or inside the park a ¨peñero¨ boat taxi to drop you in any beach you choose and set a time and date to pick up you the same day or another day . There are aprox 20 beaches you can visit in the park. The best time to go there is Oct-Feb , because its the ¨no rain season ¨and the water is cleaner to go snorkeling because there are many rivers in the zone that drop dirt in the water if it´s raining. The water is a litle colder in this season but still nice .

    this is not Cayo Borracho, but Cayo dos Pescadores....I was there I week ago! Cayo Borracho is in the middel of the sea with a flash light tower on, the lancha don't go ther because it's a preserved animal island!
