  • It contains personal belongings of the liberator Simon Bolivar. There is also a room with striking weapons used by several of our liberators. The guides are enthusiastic but have failures in history. For example I saw one of them narrate as something historic that appears in the book "Venezuela Heroica" which is a novel. I heard another explanation a mistaken one of the pictures. However they are very kind and forgive them any peloncito. It has huge rooms with historical pictures, crockery, objects, portraits and statuettes. It has a relaxing balcony which sets to see a small portion of the city.

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.
