Paraguaná peninsula Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
On the peninsula Western coast you will find Punto Fijo, headquarters of the world biggest oil refiner center. It comprises two refineries: Amuay and Cardon. On that coast there is also the fishing town Carirubana and the warm water beaches Los Taques and El Pico.
great attraction in the Peninsula is "El Cerro Santa Ana" (Santa Ana Hill), considered a national natural monument. You can reach the top departing from Moruy town where we suggest you hire one of the youngsters that work as guides. The first part of the ascending road is rather hot because of the scarce vegetation, but as the way goes upward and gets through a humid tropical forest the temperature lowers and the air freshens. At the top you will enjoy a superb overall view of the peninsula, La Sierra de Coro and Aruba Island. Inside the Peninsula there are several towns such as Pueblo Nuevo, Moruy, Santa Ana, Buena Vista, Jadacaquiva. In Moruy you will see a quite interesting hand crafted furniture domestic industry. In all these towns churches show a fine architectural design. Paraguaná Peninsula is quite arid. Goats and cardones (bushes from arid zones), are widely spread.
