Excellent sight from both sides when you are driving on the bridge, is one of the most complete sights of the Maracaibo's lake, even though you cannot stop to take pictures. Is a MUST when you are near Zulia state.

Its a very nice bridge ,going over it is impressive and the ride is about 15 minutes . When u take the bridge u leave Maracaibo and go in to the country side .And that alone is a nice thing to do

When you do pass it, you should play the Gaita folk song "Cuando voy a Maracaibo" by Maracaibo 15. It would give you the full experience.
