On the seafront, flag down a taxi and head to the Quinta de San Pedro Alejandrino, 20 minutes away. This honey-color hacienda is where Simón Bolívar died in 1830. (Ironically, he was a guest of a Spanish royalist.) On the grounds are a huge gleaming monument to the Liberator and a helpful pictorial history of his life.
