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.
