Great place :)

Plaza Venezuela is a beautiful square in Caracas, however it's a bit remote and we have to be careful about the assaults. It has a gorgeous fountain, very colorful.

This is not a place to stay or visit more than just passing by with a car! It is a plaza, could be very nice, but it is dirty and needs maintanance... Should you want to walk, don't do so there as it is NOT safe!! So, just drive by and go elsewhere... Enjoy

Its a cool fountain. Cool to see it while you're driving. Not a safe place to go down and take pictures.

We visited on a tour from a cruise ship. If it is your first vist to Caracas, it is one of the sights you should see. we were taken by coach so no security problems. Traffic horrendous.

Has a very nice view. Next to Lincoln Suites Hotel. An emblematic place where you can see Colón´s Statue. But you should be aware at night. Althouch it has an interesing design.

This is the shopping heart of Caracas. Unfortunately it is pretty much always crowded but if you are up for some shopping and don't mind, it's definitely worth a visit.

Nice place to visit a walk around, you can see gardens, fountain (at night you can see it with lights) and see El Avila mountain. In this point you are close to UCV and Caracas's downtown.

This is close to the geographical center of the city, but who cares. It has a nice fountain, helped by attractive lighting at night, but there is essentially nothing to do at Plaza Venezuela. There used to be open air cafes where you could have a coffee in the early evening, but now, JUST WATCH OUT. No restaurants to speak... More

The water fountain is just beaufiful, and it's been a city icon for decades. The lighting at night makes it a nice show. Beware that as in many big cities, you cannot walk around unaware, or you could be a victim. It's better to go with locals or pass by car.
