Yes, it is safe to go - nothing will happen to you. You need to be in this plaza as many things of historical significance happened here. The statue is right in the middle and they always keep it clean and safe.

This square is one of the main points of interest in the old town of Caracas. I came fully expecting a very unsafe place but was pleasantly surprised. I felt quite comfortable walking around and taking pics (albeit with a healthy level of paranoia).

One of the many points of interest in Caracas. However not as interesting as some other places, the plaza bolivar is huge, has a statue of Bolívar and free wifi. If you are going downtown, you will probably pass by it anyway, since it is...More
