Caracas - Travel Tips

When to Visit - Arts and Events

When Simón Bolívar (1785-1830) drove the Spanish colonialists out of Venezuela, he became the country's hero. The currency is named after him and nearly every city has a Plaza Bolívar, Caracas being no exception. As the capital of Venezuela, tributes to the country's 'liberator' can be found throughout Caracas. Those interested in discovering this passionately celebrated history can visit Casa Natal del Libertador, the reconstructed home of Bolívar, and explore the neighbouring Museo Bolivariano, which has informative displays about his life and even offers the chance to see a pair of his trousers!

Caracas Dining

A wide range of excellent cafes, bistros and restaurants is to be found throughout Caracas. French, Italian, Chinese and Mexican cuisine are just some of the choices on offer, and the Spanish tapas bars in the La Candelaria neighbourhood have an enviable reputation. Venezuelan food, known as criollo, is a mix of Spanish and Caribbean influences, and speciality dishes include parilla, beef marinated and cooked over a charcoal grill, and pabellon, shredded meat served with fried plantain, black beans and rice. Empanades, deep-fried pasties, and arepas, corn cakes filled with delicious savoury fillings, are also fine examples of Venezuelan cuisine.

Caracas Tipping Advice

Restaurants and bars include a 10% service charge in their prices, but it is customary to leave a tip of 10% on the table. Hotel porters, hairdressers and guides expect tips of VEB 200.00 or more. Taxi drivers are normally only tipped if they carry luggage.
