Located at the north end of the Peninsula Paraguana Cabo San Roman is the northernmost point of holy Venezuela.Fue sighted the August 9, 1499, on the day of San Román, who gave name to the place and start to whole peninsula, an expedition of Alonso de Ojeda sailed from the nearby island of Curacao in the company of Amerigo Vespucci and Juan de la Cosa.
It is a coral promontory rising over the warm waters of the Caribbean Sea,at a distance of seventy miles from the city of Coro approximate, the capital of Falcón state.
Usually Cape beaches are rocky, strong waves and lack of shade, although you may find some small sandy entrances where you can enjoy a swim in the sea. The road to Cabo San Román is land, but is currently being paved and will soon be possible to give all round the peninsula along the coast,from Adícora to Villa Marina, through it.
The main attraction of Cape San Román, apart from the extraordinary surrounding landscape, is the modern beacon was installed by the Venezuelan Navy recently and to which he could climb to a viewpoint located at an intermediate level, but the vandals some , coupled with the absence of a checkpoint, forcing the closure.
Once at the lighthouse, if you look to the west,see a small dune field in the distance: They are the White Dunes. Its appeal lies in the fact that they are located on the seashore.
To reach the White Dunes there is no road as such but some trails that start from different points and intersect to match later in the same place. We recommend taking it down from the lighthouse towards the beach, towards a group of houses arranged the seashore. Of course,the use of four wheel drive vehicles because have to go through sandy and muddy terrain is preferable. In some parts also have to spend on rocky and coral areas where the road is lost.
