  • Excellent University and heritage of a humanity UNESCO, in addition to that has a large number of works of art and designed entirely by the architect Carlos Raúl Villanueva

  • Great University, good teachers, magnificent architectural structure, filled with light, but it neglected. The politicking to a political side and internal corruption within it has made a very decadent University. But educational excellence remains standing and trying to survive the difficulties, or rather, trying to overcome the shadows.

Where to stay in Caracas

Safety is the number one priority when choosing an area to stay in Caracas. The city has many no-go zones, although accommodations are typically located in safer areas. Nevertheless, it's worth asking your hotel receptionist for advice before you go out on your own. Caracas offers a range of mid-range and luxury hotels at surprisingly high prices, with few budget hostels available. The areas around Bulevar Sabana Grande and farther east are generally considered the safest options of foreign travelers.
