Puerto La Cruz is a city in Venezuela's Northeast, in the state of Anzoátegui.
Flying in to Puerto La Cruz can be very expensive. Domestic flights from Caracas can go for $150 one way per person for the 40 minute flight. Like all airlines, if you book early aad outside of peak holiday times, they can be much cheaper e.g. $55 one way If you take a cab from the airport make sure you take one of the airport "official cabs" as there are many "piratas" cabs which can be dangerous.
If you fly to Puerto La Cruz the nearest airport is in Barcelona which is the capital of the state Anzoategui. From here you have to take a 30-min cab ride to Puerto La Cruz. Make sure you have your hotel info before you get there, as cab drivers are not too good at suggesting what will be the best hotel for you.
While flying is the safest option, if you feel adventurous you can take a bus to Puerto La Cruz from Caracas.
The best option for routes to the east of the capital, including Puerto La Cruz, is the bus line called Rodovias de Venezuela for about $20. Bus leaves every hour or so until 10:30pm. Any local will be able to direct you to the closest terminal. You can also take the Metro and get off at "Colegios de Ingenieros" station. Once you go upstairs you will see the bus terminal. Is very obvious.
