Miranda is in Central Venezuela. Although it is one of the smaller states, it is also highly populated as the urban sprawl of Caracas has spilled into it. Indeed, much of the eastern part of the capital city is administered by the Miranda state government.
The recently completed Los Teques metro now connects satellite towns in Miranda with Caracas in a matter of minutes. Road links remain poor and congested.
- 1 Beaches of Higuerote. Some of the nicer beaches in Venezuela can be found in this state. For example Playa Caracolito (see marker).
