Admire the impressive statue of the eponymous Bolivar at Plaza Parque Simon Bolivar, or simply relax in one of the vibrant surrounding coffee shops. Located in the heart of town, the square draws scores of locals and tourists to its water fountain. The addition of quite a few vendors makes this place a hive of activity. Get away from the blazing heat and nab yourself a canopied spot under one of the plaza's many trees; you might even spot an iguana or two.
