TRANSPORTATION

Maracay has good transportation facilities and infrastructure. The city is linked to most other important localities by the Autopista Regional del Centro (Central Regional Highway). It also has good access to Venezuela's small national railway system. The city boasts the national Hidroplane airport, located on the shore of the Lago de Valencia (Lake of Valencia). The city does not have a subway system, but one is in the planning stages.

Maracay has two airports. The Airport Mariscal Sucre (IATA MCY ICAO SVBS) and the military Air Base El Libertador (IATAMYC ICAO SVBL)

SOCIAL PROGRAM
Because it is such a competitive market, night clubs, bars and restaurants are constantly reinventing themselves and places that are packed one weekend are deserted the next. For that reason it would probably be best to Ask the LEO in each LC.

You will be at only 1 hour away from the beach!
