    Just passed through the plaza but it is very well maintained and kept. The church beside it gives a great outlook but early morning I didn't linger. Located in a beautiful part of the historic city.  more »

Where to stay in Ciudad Bolivar

The most popular neighborhood to stay in Cuidad Bolivar lies to the west of the botanical gardens, just south of the Orinoco River. Rustic and characterful posadas (guesthouses) sit on the side streets and main boulevards of the quarter, offering rooms both humble and grand in romantic, old buildings. Move away from the old part of town to find the city's high-rise hotels, located between the airport and the botanical gardens. With more room than in the historic center, some accommodations here boast additional facilities, such as fine dining restaurants, swimming pools, and gyms. Still others offer budget-friendly rooms for travelers interested in taking the highway out of town to explore the wider region.
