My name is Gabriel Cisneros and as Chief Concierge at the Tamanaco InterContinental I welcome you Caracas. The hotel’s location offers visitors a spectacular view of the city, an amazing pool, beautiful gardens, and the best service that any hotel can provide.
The Hotel is located 45 minutes from the Caracas International Airport Simon Bolivar, it is a architecture icon of the city wich was build in the year 1953 and also it was the first Intercontinental in the world, and located in a mordern district. We have a huge variety of local and international gastronomic.
Breakfast in Caracas should be spent watching the breaking down over the city in our restaurant Café Cacique, with the traditional Venezuelan food and the best service. Enjoy your morning with us and have the best day ever.
If you want to delve right into the city you can head to the old town. The best taste of the Spanish colonial period is the Colonial Art Museum, a period house with exquisite art, furniture and historical artefacts. The mansion is in the middle of a wonderful garden almost as spectacular as the house itself. If you're enjoying this historical genre, you should travel to a little town in the southeast of Caracas called El Hatillo. One of the best preserved towns in Venezuela, it has an almost provincial feel to it, with a magnificently preserved Catholic church. If you want to stay for a while, you can have a traditional Pablo Creole lunch in a classic Venezuelan style.
Sundowns in Caracas paint the sky a brilliant pink. For a truly authentic Venezuelan eating experience, there is no better place than the family-run Bar Basque. This place serves original Basque banquets made by a family who pass secret recipes down the generations. Salt cod stew, artichokes, Spanish sausages and Basque specialities like xakoli and kokoxas are served in an atmosphere you simply could not create. The warmth of a true family from grandmother Blanca Royo to grandson Carlos Navas creates an easy atmosphere in which to relax and to find a family away from family is a little bit special too.
Enjoy our tropical weather and have fun wearing whatever you want in our city!
