The Venezuelan government has set a special plan that includes:

  • a) The habilitation of the old road Caracas-La Guaira with a limited schedule from 5 AM to 9 PM for the exclusive transit of individual vehicules and passengers; and from 10 PM a 4 AM for the transit of heavyload vehicles in one way per day.
  • b) An alternative way from and toward the Airport will also be available through El Junquito y Carayaca. The Maiquetia airport that serves Caracas WILL NOT BE CLOSED.

  • c) If it is needed the Charallave airport located at 1 hour of Caracas will be habilitated for land transport.
  • d) From the Maiquatia Simon Bolivar Airport (main Caracas airport) participants can fly to the “Palo Negro” Airport located in the city of Maracay or the “Arturo Michelena” Airport located in the city of Valencia, at respectively 150 KM and 200 KM (aprox), for a transit driving time to Caracas between 1 and 2 hours.
