“Full of people protesting”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2012

Felt very insecure, there were lots of people shouting and protesting. Apparently this situation is normal there.

“The centre”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2012

Lovely centre with pretty buildings and plenty of trees. Not much to do in the centre besides a coffee, wander and Simon Bolivar´s house. Worth a look.
