Tropical weather, great food, and memorable jungle surroundings seem like all the ingredients Caracas needs to become a must-see destination. Despite this, a reputation for being one of the world's most violent cities doesn't exactly do wonders for Caracas tourism, with many travelers opting to avoid the area altogether. While it's true that gang violence sometimes causes big problems after dark, you can stay safe if you follow a few simple precautions and ask locals for advice. Don't miss a chance to explore the city's thriving arts scene during your Caracas holiday. Add Caracas and other destinations to your itinerary using our Venezuela trip website, and learn about what to see, what to do, and where to stay.

Where to stay in Caracas

Safety is the number one priority when choosing an area to stay in Caracas. The city has many no-go zones, although accommodations are typically located in safer areas. Nevertheless, it's worth asking your hotel receptionist for advice before you go out on your own. Caracas offers a range of mid-range and luxury hotels at surprisingly high prices, with few budget hostels available. The areas around Bulevar Sabana Grande and farther east are generally considered the safest options of foreign travelers.
