Basically there are 2 ways:

In the User form you will see a field named Timezone(Zona Horaria), you could select your timezone. The second is a red or yellow triangle in the top right of the Odoo ui, clicking on that icon display a message that saids that there is a difference between your user and browser timezone like in the image:

no no no, i mean in source code, i hate configure tz in that red triangle

You need set 'America/Caracas' as default of the field 'tz' in res.user model. Also you need to set the same for the user admin thought an xml record
