Welcome to Santa Fe
There’s little reason to leave the intimate posada- and cafe-lined sandy strip other than to walk to the bus terminal or visit the town’s rowdy nightclub. The beach is a chill spot to sit in the sand and sip beers and fruit juices. If you are looking for more remote and pristine beaches, small boats make day trips to the islands of Parque Nacional Mochima.
After stopping at the bus terminal just off the highway (1km to the beach posadas, but don't walk it at night), transportation from Puerto La Cruz and Cumaná will usually deposit you by the beach. The police station is across the street from here, and helpful officers may offer an escort to your posada.
