Medanos de Coro, Coro

#1 of 11 in Things to do in Coro
One of South America's more idiosyncratic national parks, the sandy dunes of Medanos de Coro seem a world away from the bustle of the city center. The plant life here consists of little more than small thorny shrubs dotted around the landscape. What you do have at this coastal desert habitat are rolling sand hills reminiscent of a Middle Eastern desert--a result of the little to no rainfall this area receives. Keep an eye out for lizards, foxes, and rabbits scurrying around in their natural habitat. Put Medanos de Coro and other Coro attractions into our Coro visit website , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Well, this is always a spectacular trip, it's being in a desert but very close to civilization. It is really worth visiting this site.

  • The view of the dunes projected a sense of immensity. Sensation of sand in your feet

  • Bello mis medanos
  • I was robbed here (my profesional camera and phone). The place is highly dangerous, especially after 4 pm. Bad guys who rob with guns live inside the park in their “ranchitos” illegally invaded territories. Guardia Nacional (there are two alcabalas of National Guards in the two entrances of the park) and police is covering malandros, there is NO way to catch them after the robbery. Police do have photos of all the robbers and do nothing to protect people. Tasty part of the robbery is that they try to make you feel you are paying them with your things to save your life... for those who love feeling adrenaline, welcome to Medanos de Coro...
