Maracaibo

Beloved Land of the Sun

In a city that serves as the hub of Venezuela's oil industry, Maracaibo vacations often involve shopping by day and exploring the club scene by night. The historic town center with its colonial architecture tops most Maracaibo tours, allowing visitors to learn about the area's European heritage. Even with its status as a major industrial center, Maracaibo is also a city of culture, boasting numerous important theaters, museums, and libraries.

Where to stay in Maracaibo

Stay near the town center if you're into colonial architecture and history, but expect to pay a high price for the privilege of sleeping in a prime location. Basic motels offer a decent compromise between price and quality and draw mostly business travelers and tourists passing through Maracaibo on the way to somewhere else. If you wish to stay affordably for a few days, check into a mid-range hotel near one of the metro stations.
