Already in the first level called Sucre, there are several clothing stores, food and a very new "Rio", a supermarket that is very popular due to the variety of products offered and low prices, plus some very curious benches with a palm tree in the middle where you can rest and contemplate the interior of the mall; On this level are also located the escalators that give access to the next level and a very special space in the mall, which at Christmas is decorated with great care for the family to enjoy and take beautiful pictures for the memory of your visit to the mall at Christmas time.

Ya en el primer nivel llamado Sucre, existen varias tiendas de ropa, comida y una muy nueva "Río", un supermercado muy concurrido debido a la variedad de productos que ofrece y los precios bajos, además unos bancos muy curiosos con una palmera en el medio donde se puede descansar y contemplar el interior del centro comercial; en este nivel también se ubican las escaleras eléctricas que dan acceso al siguiente nivel y un espacio muy especial en el centro comercial , que en navidad es decorado con mucho esmero para que la familia disfrute y tome hermosas fotografías para el recuerdo de su visita al centro comercial en la época decembrina.

On the third level is located the Traky store, a department store that is the largest in the mall, this was the destination that my family and I had when visiting this mall; the Traky store, to buy uniforms and school supplies; since the school year is about to start, checking this store requires a lot of time at least 6 hours, there is so much to see that if you lose focus of the objective you end up buying what you had planned, if you go to the home department there is so much to choose from that I preferred not to go and keep my goal in the uniforms and supplies for my son, to our surprise we could not buy the uniform because the sizes were too small, we still went on our way and enjoyed the ride.

En el tercer nivel se ubica la tienda Traky, una tienda por departamentos que es la más grande del centro comercial, este era el destino que teníamos mi familia y yo al visitar este centro comercial; la tienda Traky, para comprar los uniformes y útiles escolares; ya que el año escolar está próximo a iniciar, revisar esta tienda requiere bastante tiempo al menos 6 horas, hay tanto que ver que si te desenfocas del objetivo terminas comprando lo que habías planificado, si vas al departamento de hogar hay tanto por escoger que preferí no ir y mantener mi objetivo en los uniformes y útiles de mi hijo, para nuestra sorpresa no pudimos comprar el uniforme porque las tallas eran muy pequeñas, igual seguimos nuestro camino y disfrutamos el paseo.

We continued our tour and arrived at the terrace or food fair, where they offer a great gastronomic variety with dishes from different countries, the most requested menu are those of Arturo's, which is generally based on pieces of very crispy chicken accompanied with salad and arepas, plus delicious ice cream and cakes to share with family, in this particular area there is a terrace in a northwest direction, with tables and chairs that is very busy for meetings in groups or family and also to take the best photos; Since from there you can see the peninsula of Araya (located in front of Cumana) and various sectors of the city; in the peak hours (4 to 6 pm is a little difficult to capture the best photos, because several groups of young people come to this place to share and take the best selfies).On this visit I did not miss the opportunity to take these beautiful pictures, taking advantage of the fact that there were not many people in the place, we also enjoyed a delicious dessert.

Continuamos nuestro recorrido y llegamos a la terraza o feria de comida, donde ofrecen una gran variedad gastronómica con platillos de diferentes países, los menú más solicitados son los de Arturo's, que está basado generalmente en piezas de pollos muy crocante acompañados con ensalada y arepas, además deliciosos helados y tortas para compartir en familia, en esta zona en particular hay una terraza en sentido nor oeste, con mesas y sillas que es muy concurrida para reuniones en grupos o familiares y también para tomar las mejores fotos; ya que desde allí se puede avistar la península de Araya (ubicada al frente de Cumaná) y varios sectores de la ciudad; en las horas picos ( 4 a 6 de la tarde es un poco difícil, capturar las mejores fotos, debido a que varios grupos de jóvenes se dan cita a este lugar para compartir y sacar las mejores selfies). En esta visita no perdí la oportunidad de tomar estas hermosas fotos, aprovechando que no habían muchas personas en el lugar, también disfrutamos unos deliciosos postres.

Impressive mall dear @belkyscabrera. It was as if I was there with you while you were narrating to us your architectural tour. The Traky store in that establishment is absolutely huge! Imagine taking 6 hours to completely cover everything. And we're only talking about one section. With that amount of time, I could also watch 3 regular movies at the same building, haha 😁

That shopping complex is simply well-designed for the whole family as it offers amenities that cater to kids as well as adults. 👍😊

Due to its massive size, does that mall have an attached hotel, condominiums, or residential apartments?

Hi @storiesoferne, the Traky store, is very big and the departments are well organized with so many exhibits that capture the attention and have so much to show; in the high seasons (Christmas and back to school) you take up to 12 hours to buy; as the queues to pay are long, the first time I visited the store was at Christmas; We were a group of friends, we entered at 9 in the morning and left at 5 in the afternoon, we had to see each department of the store in turns while one of us was waiting in line to pay, in these seasons the prices are very low, and it is the perfect opportunity to buy the children's toys, clothes and household items, when you go shopping at this store you know you are going to be several hours away from home.

There are no hotels near the mall; only exclusive residential complexes, the hotels are towards the center of the city and getting from the hotel to the mall is quite close. Seeing the movie is an excellent idea to enjoy the time, thanks for the tip, ha ha.

It is a place to go as a family, while one group does the shopping, another stays with the children, then they get together again to share a delicious meal, thank you for your visit.

Happy and blessed day!

Definitely @belkyscabrera, that mall is massive and would take a considerable amount of time to enjoy everything there, especially during the holiday season. 😊

The reason why I asked about the presence of residential towers is that in some countries like the Philippines, some of these housing complexes and hotels are directly attached to the large shopping centers, providing ease of access, comfort, and convenience to their tenants and homeowners. Thank you for showcasing this marvelous piece of architecture! 👍

Hi @storiesoferne, yes, in the Christmas season you should be prepared to spend several hours in the store.

I think there is a mall in the city that has residences; in Anzoátegui state (which is very close to Cumaná), malls are usually located near hotels and main avenues to facilitate access and lodging for tourists and visitors.


Great mall friend @belkyscabrera thanks for sharing 😍

Hello @lileisabel, thanks for stopping by; it is a very complete and beautiful place where the fun of the little ones and adults is guaranteed.
