Cumana

Cumana

The capital of Sucre state, Cumana is a city of 280,000 inhabitants and an important port for sardine fishing and canning. Founded by the Spaniards in 1521, it takes pride in being the oldest existing town on South America's mainland. Most of its colonial architecture, however, has been destroyed by earthquakes, which have rocked the town several times.

Cumana has some attractions but is noted more for its environs than for the city itself. To the west is the beautiful Parque Nacional Mochima with its islands and beaches, to the north is the intriguing Perunsula de Araya, while to the southeast is the Cueva del Guacharo. Cumana is also one of the gateways to Isla de Margarita.
