“Nice place”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

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.

“Nothing to see”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

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 of, and it is noisy, being nearly on top of the endless traffic jams. Very typical of the general decline in quality in this country.

Good enough value too although upmarket hotels are dear
Lovely setting with the mountains
The price of petrol is crazy

“Beautiful night sight”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

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.
