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.

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.
