Reviews of Ciudad Bolívar

Rose Nicolini Seasoned Traveller

Ciudad Bolivar is a colonial city located at the edge of the Orinoco River, departure point for trips to the Amazon region.

My suggestion:
If the journey by plane to go and see Angel Falls exceeds your budget, don't panic, there are other trips to do in the region.
My review

I was positively surprised by Ciudad Bolivar. Thinking of doing a quick stopover there between two destinations, I chose to spend a limited time there, which I filled well, nevertheless. Ciudad Bolivar is a historic town which is lovely to visit. I liked to walk in the alleys to admire the architectural style and the colourful facades.

Ciudad Bolivar is on the edge of the Orinoco River, a river with one of the most important flows in the world. You go along it on the Paseo Orinoco promenade. I found the view very beautiful at the end of the day with the sunset. There you can have a drink or something to eat, but ask the locals as the service is irregular. Finally, if you want to organise an outing to Angel Falls, Canaima National Park or the Amazon region, you're in the right place.
