Macuto is a city in the state of Vargas. Macuto is some 10km from the airport and the adjoining state capital of La Guaira. Since Macuto is served by public buses and the "por Puesto" private jitneys from Caracas, the quiet weekday beaches will become crowed with many Caracenos on weekends. Sidewalk vendors and restaurants, ice-cream shops and horses for hire are popular. The seaside promenade is a nice place to walk or jog. A few museums are also nearby.
