Welcome to Coro
Caressed by pleasant sea breezes, Coro is one of the prettier colonial cities in Venezuela and the entry point to the magnificent sand dunes of the Parque Nacional Médanos de Coro. The cobblestone Zamora, where most of the historic mansions are located, rivals any other colonial architecture in the country, and the city has been on Unesco’s World Heritage list since 1993. Though it's important to remember that Venezuela is not as blessed with colonial towns as its neighbours Brazil and Colombia, and much of Coro is a hectic, modern city like any other in Venezuela. Coro is best employed as an excellent base for exploring the region, especially the Península de Paraguaná and the mountainous Sierra de San Luis. It boasts a large student population and excellent budget accommodations.
