The figure of Simon Bolivar is idolized: the statute in the park that bears his name, his home, or Bolivariano Museum, are often visited places.
Among the things you must do are the cable car ride to Cerro Al Avila, where you can see all the way to the Caribbean sea (morning visits are best to avoid the fog) and the Parque del Este, designed by Brazilian architect Burle Marx, where you will find a planetarium and a zoo. Don’t miss out on the arepa, a pastry that is the symbol of Venezuelan culinary. For an interesting outing, take the bus to El Hatillo, a colonial city 30 km away.
At night, enjoy the gastronomic scene at the La Mercedes and Altamira neighborhoods, and the bars at the San Ignacio Commercial Center in La Castellana.
