Ciudad Bolivar

(4.2/5 based on 90 reviews for 3 attractions)
Things to do: nature, sightseeing, museums

Gateway to Southern Venezuela

The capital of Bolivar State, Ciudad Bolivar (previously known as Angostura) offers a cocktail of cultural and natural highlights. On the banks of the Orinoco River, Ciudad Bolivar represents a pleasant starting point for explorations of the region's natural sights, including famous waterfalls, accessible on a number of day trips from the city. Under its previous name, the city became known as the birthplace of Angostura Bitters, a claim to fame that testifies to the city's diverse and industrious agriculture. A tour of Cuidad Bolivar's charming historic center displays neat, multicolored colonial-era buildings, while a more modern artistic scene centers on live music and leading regional art galleries. When using our Venezuela tour planner, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.

Where to stay

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.
