The Julio Enrique Monagas National Park used to be ammunition and a weapon warehouse during WWII, but now serves a more peaceful cause. Today, most of the visitors are mountain bikers, as it is one of the few tracks in the metro area. It is highly recommended, if is your first time there, to seek guidance for which trail you should choose depending on your experience. With limestone cliffs, the park is popular for climbing. Use caution and only climb if you are experienced. The park also has several swings and gazebos for the enjoyment of the whole family. The gazebos can be rented to celebrate activities.
