Fodor's Review

This lovely square, the heart of the city since it was inaugurated in 1895, is known by many names. Because it has the almost obligatory statue of a triumphant Simón Bolívar, many locals call it Parque Bolívar. A more common moniker is Parque de las Iguanas, as dozens of the scaly green creatures can be found lazing about on park benches and across the limbs of trees. (Vendors sell mango slices for you to feed to the animals if the spirit moves you.) The gardens, which still have a marvelous wrought-iron bandstand, are filled with 43 species of indigenous plants.
