I will be in Venezuela in March 2015. After doing a 10 day Vipasanna Meditation course I would like to go and chill out on Los Roques Islands. Does any know how much a travel agency will charge for the flights? Is it cheapest to go through an agency rather than booking the flights at the airport?
Also as far as I can read from the forum and researching online its not possible to book tickets myself, is this still the case?
I appreciate any help or tips on the matter.

I'm planning my first time trip to Venezuela. When I travel, I like to make a little money by bringing things to sell. I noticed that Apple iPhone 6's on "Mercado Libre" are going for $99.000 BsF ~ $15,745 USD!!! That can't be right? Am I reading it wrong?
Does anyone know how much they are really selling for?
Has anyone had any problems having to declare or pay customs fee when getting off the plane?
