See one of the landmarks of the capital city when you visit Plaza de Altamira. In the center of the plaza stands the obelisk, a symbol of the city. A fountain begins at the obelisk and the water falls all the way down to the edge of the plaza. While at the edge of the plaza, stop to have a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants that surround the open area. From the plaza, also admire the views of nearby mountains. For your safety, many visitors recommend not visiting the plaza after dark. To visit Plaza de Altamira and other attractions in Caracas, use our Caracas family vacation planner.

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.
