#7 of 101 in Things to do in Caracas
Take a peaceful walk at Paseo de Los Proceres, a grandiose monument and public park. Dedicated to the fighters in the South American independence struggles, it was inaugurated in 1956 by then-president Marcos Perez Jimenez. Stroll the park walkway that ends in the massive white marble monoliths resembling a gate. Along the way you'll pass gardens, large oval fountains, and many sculptures and decorations. The spacious park makes a great place for resting, exercising, or having a picnic.

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.
