Puente Gral Rafael Urdaneta, Maracaibo

(4.3/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Cross the famous Puente Gral Rafael Urdaneta, the city’s most iconic landmark. The large, concrete marvel of architecture, named after Venezuelan Independence War hero, crosses Maracaibo Lake and connects the city with the rest of the country. At almost 9 km (5.5 miles) long, it was one of the longest in the world when it was inaugurated in 1962. Feel the breeze and take in the panoramic view as you ride across the vehicle-only bridge, or experience it from a different view by sailing on the lake under it. Arrange to visit Puente Gral Rafael Urdaneta and other attractions in Maracaibo using our Maracaibo vacation builder.
