Ciudad Bolivar, Venezuela, is a large city that boasts one of Venezuela most pretty old towns, Casco Historico. Most people appear to only stop by in transit to somewhere else (usually Salto Angel), but it is well worth spending a night or two at a hostel in Ciudad Bolivar, Venezuela and exploring the area. Accommodation options in the old town are limited, but there are some posadas.
The place is alive with a proud history and you can find it in the old town. It's here you can see evidence of the old walls that defended the city and the grand colonial houses that line the Casco Historico. You can also enjoy visiting two small free museums. The museums showcase the history of Venezuela and Ciudad Bolivar and are in colonial style housing, however information is only available in Spanish.
In the centre of the old town you will find Plaza Bolivar and the historical bright yellow cathedral at its side; it's a pretty square, and just in front, there is a lovely street lined with cafes and a couple of restaurants. Toward the edge of old town, you will find the Orinoco River, which is lined with a path along which it's nice to walk, and there are also a couple of restaurants and self-catering options along the river.
Outside of the old town, there are many eating and self-catering options, including a number of supermarkets. However most tourists do not venture too far out of Casco Historico, and if you do, it is likely that you will need a taxi. Inside the old town there are a couple of fruit shops and some smaller supermarkets that should supply most necessities. Exchanging money can be difficult, so make sure you know someone who can help you. Money exchanges do exist along the river, but be aware of possible scams and make sure you know the local exchange rate beforehand.
