    The first time I went I was afraid by the comments of this page. I guess that many of those who write have time without going. It is restored, going many people walking, it has many benches to sit and play chess. Park for children. PDVSA La Estancia has done a good decent job. Most speak of supply as the most interesting thing that has the square, but seems to me the best that has the work of Cruz Diez with the statue of Andrés Bello. It is a busy place, have some caution. But the truth today as well must be in the city. I took many photos of the square next to Russian tourists and all good. I like more than the Plaza Altamira, and I think that the place has greater potential as recreation area once get a more efficient Government that solve the problems of public safety. In the surroundings you have works of great importance to the heritage of the city, and is also close to the Los Caobos Park, the Museum square and the Boulevard de Sabana Grande. Needed restaurants around. And restore what once was Grand Avenue. Today it is a horrible market.

    It is an iconic place but for safety it is best not to go. prefix to recommend other places, environment is not safe and there are police officers, it is not a safe area.

    Then there is a fountain, is a peaceful place, but now known as also between protesters and security forces, so is not an idyllic tourist destination is not. But watching the fountains and statues in time not demonstrators, such as if the hindrances.

    Beautiful place to run or hangout. At night is more nice. Sadly Caracas is too dangerous at this moment. So, be careful

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.
