A tiny cleaned up area of the city for a traditional look at how the city started and for a cold beer. Still a lot of garbage and strays around, but a bit more secure and some good local food you can buy from local vendors.

If you're visiting Maracaibo, this is a place you must see! It's the only street in the city that has been preserved in the traditional colonial style with colorfully painted houses. There are many restaurants in this area to enjoy.
