Beyond the city, we venture into the impressive Medanos de Coro (the dunes), a landscape of golden dunes that extend infinitely. We experienced the thrill of sliding down these undulating dunes, enjoying the natural grandeur that constantly changes with the sunlight and wind, so pay attention if you are driving because many times, the roads are block by the sand.
