Ignoring the topic of whether or not I should go to Venezuela (that is for another topic), does anyone know a cheap way to get from Venezuela to Colombia now that the border is closed. I have no intention of breaking the laws of either country by trying to cross the border anyway, so I am looking at my options.
The way I see it, I have 2 options, one which costs time, and the other which costs money.
Option 1: Fly. I would likely be trying to fly from Maracaibo, and flights are coming…
I read this interesting article about someone living in V for just over $100:
If its that cheap one has to consider why aren't many foreigners from Western countries not moving there (instead of say Thailand for example). Obviously the crime is an issue. How bad is it in V? What are the dangers of travelling there??? If you are living there or have recently travelled there please share your experiences.
Are there any cheap(er) flying options to get between these 2 cities - Bogota (or other Colombia cities) and Caracas ? Round trip prices in US dollars i found are below, and i noticed there appeared no 50% price break if you book one-way except for Conviasa
Airlines i know that operate this route, and the best prices i found
Aerorepublica $300-400 RT
Avianca $300-400 RT
TAME $400 RT
Conviasa 60.607,45 VEF OW or 110.761,35 VEF RT (correct me if i am wrong…
I live and work in Lima and was planning to fly into Caracas and then to Angel Falls but LATAM have now cancelled direct flights from Lima (as have Lufthansa and I imagine more airlines will).
The other places I want to go on this trip are Suriname, Guyana and Trinidad and Tobago. I am now going to fly Lima to Miami using my airmiles and use that as a fairly cheap base to go to Guyana, overland to Suriname and then fly to Port of Spain.
What I can´t find after hours of online research…
Hi, i plan to make a trip out to Angel Falls in November 2016.
The typical trip a visitor does is to go o a 3D2N trip. However, I want to add-on Kavac as a side trip (which require extra 1-2 days) and thus am looking for tour mates to do that and share out costs, since I am traveling solo
For example, such itinerary would involve the following
versus the usual 3D2N
I had no idea that Venezuela had cocoa plantations. Apparently it is a highly regarded - in the chocolate world - as being a primo grade product. Any chocoholic travelers confirm this? Is chocolate a common VZ treat? Tough with the heat perhaps to make a bar last. I thought oil was the only export.
How do Venezuelans (in general) see LGBT people in their country? Do they have some problems when they see this people in the street?
Is it good way to be open in this country or better to be discreet?
I'll keep the politics to a minimum so the post doesn't get flagged. The country is the most expensive to visit at the official exchange rate. It could the worlds cheapest but you have to break the law + risk personal safety to do it. There are travel advisories. Zika. Electricity blackouts. Tourists are now competing for basic goods that the local lower and middle class citizens have to wait for hours or days to purchase and consume. Milk to toilet paper. Travel is greatest teacher we have in…
