This was the last resting place of Simon Bolivar. The historical importance of this place is well-explained by the guides. Keep your eyes peeled for iguanas. There are lots to see here.

This was a part of a ship's tour. It was the highlight to see how people lived during the times of the reunification in South America. A nice tribute to Simon Bolivar as well since he did in this place in 1830
