    the Botanical Garden is a jewel with a high level of carelessness and negligence. Among the evil garden todaviase can find extraordinary plants that were incorporated years ago with great care. At the present time is a careless and dangerous to visit site. I write these lines with the hope that this wonderful park is recovered.

    The place is very nice to walk, has no other activities but I do not recommend anyone going, the underworld has appropriated the place and is fortunate if not you suffer a theft or something worse

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.
