These include Balinese dancers, the Borobudur and Prambanan temples in Yogyakarta, the Komodo Island in East Nusa Tenggara and Bunaken marine park in North Sulawesi.
"Metro Caracas is proud for giving Indonesian tourism and culture promotion room as part of an effort to increase [ties] between the two countries," Metro Caracas president Cesar Vega said in a statement on Monday.
Indonesian Ambassador to Venezuela Mochammad Luthfie Witto’eng said the move aims to introduce the archipelago's various culture and tourist destinations, as well as encourage Venezuelans to visit Indonesia.
The Metro Caracas has served the people of Venezuela since 1983, transporting around 2 million people across its four lines and 22 stations every day.
