Casa Vieja Altamira consists of two colonial-styled buildings which are located at the town center, just separated by a school. The photographs depicted below show the new Casa Vieja lodge. Subsequently, you will find some pictures of the Posada Cáseres (former name), directly located at the Plaza Bolívar, which operates as a hotel for ten years already. -> [diashow posadas]

Relaxation between the Andes and the Llanos
The Andes and its cities of Mérida and Tabay as well as the animal rich Los Llanos steppe are two of the most visited areas of Venezuela. Although the Llanos constitute one third of the entire country, the Hatos (also called Fincas or ranches) which are provident for visitors, concentrate south of Barinas. Visitors to the Llanos (3 to 4-days tour) usually depart from one of the two Andes cities. Right after Tabay (1600 m), the Transandina highway, the most scenic road of Venezuela, serpentines upon the Sierra Nevada highlands where glacier lakes, Freilejones (up to two meters tall plants), chapels, colonial villages, and of course the Andean landscape wait to get discovered. After a trip to the Eagle Pass at 4200 meters the Transandina route arrives at its highest point. From there, it descends via numerous bends passing subtropical cloudforest, tropical mountain rainforests. Altamira de Cáceres is settled in midst of this fascinating and hot tropical landscape on a ledge, 10 minutes by car from the Transandina highway.

This silent community that has been founded in 1577 by the Spains is not only an ideal hub between mountains and steppe but also a pretty colonial village with a Plaza Bolívar where people meet at early night for chatting.

Altamira which is situated in middle of tropical rainforest is a must-have for birdwatching tours throughout Venezuela. At immediate vicinity of the colonial-styled lodges you will find various Manikin and Cotinga lecks. A Cock of the Rock leck is close as well. Furthermore, there are wonderful hikes through primary vegetation and coffee plantations, alongside of rivers or to waterfalls (as the untouched Catarata del Silencio). There is also a wide range of outdoor activities such as canyoning, rafting, and mountainbiking.
