Another question - maybe someone knows:
What is with the "Teleferico" route that goes down from the Avila to el Litoral ? This would be a cool solution.
Well, I visited Avila Mï¿½gica almost a year ago and an old, rusty station is what was left of that route. I don't think Avila Mï¿½gica has done any improvements to the line in order to be operative.

It is mentioned as an alternative route but by car only. Jeeps and other rustic cars may go thru El Galipan over the mountain that way.
Indeed. My brother traveled last weekend and fearing the mess at the old road, he decided to go down there by jeep. They pick you up at Hotel Avila and charge Bs. 200,000+ per person for the trip (about $100).
I also heard about a helicopter service that costs $200 from La Carlota to CCS. What a scam. This whole bridge issue is just the perfect situation for "vivos" to make money.
