Plaza Bolivar, Caracas

2.7
Visit Plaza Bolivar, the heart of the oldest district in Caracas, to pay tribute to one of South America's most iconic military and political leaders. The monument to the national hero, Simón Bolívar, was inaugurated in 1874, with statues of four women in the corners of the plaza representing the four original states of Gran Colombia: Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, and Colombia. The equestrian statue shows Bolivar in a proud, authoritative light. Many of the city's most important buildings stand close to the square.

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.
