I am looking for clarifications on the potential risks of travelling to Venezuela. I have read many threads on this topic, and I have to say I am quite confused. My plan would be to visit Venezuela in October 2015 with a tour organized by a UK tour operator that covers the Gran Sabana, Roraima and Angel Falls. I was reassured by the fact that the areas the trip covers are quite remote, and by the fact itself that several reputable companies run trips to this area, but from what I read it seems…
Hey My name is Belker,
I am studying in puerto rico this year and have been fantasizing about taking a boat from puerto rico to venezeula where I have a place to stay. Is there such thing as a boat that goes from the Caribbean to south america?? If not from puerto rico, the dominican republic would also be another option. What is the reliability of catching such boat and what would the time scale be if this does exist?
Hello! I have only 10 days to be in Venezuela, and i really want to go to Roraima. Does anyone have recommendations for tours that are economical? I dont have a problem brining some or most of my own equipment if that makes a difference.
Alternatively, if i didn't go to roraima, what would you guys recommend to see in 10 days? (I have already been to Margarita and Caracas... so not those places,. I also have a friend with a car there that offered a road trip if so desired.)
I am travelling along the coast from Colombia to Caracus in a couple of months.
I enjoy volunteering at hare krishna eco villages. I am hoping to find a place to relax, enjoy healthy (organic / vegetarian) food, practice some yoga etc.
Any suggestions? Somewhere to stay for a few days....
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.
Basically I aiming to fly home in time for Christmas. I was initially planning on flying back from Brazil but prices jump massively from the start of December up until the 15th/20th when I'd prefer to fly back.
So...I have recently had an idea to fly back from Venezuela as I want to return to the country to atleast do Angel Falls and Roraima, possibly more. My question is: does anyone know if there is anything prohibiting you from paying in cash? If I manage to procure Dollars or even if I…
Why I Went There?
Mount Roraima and Angel Falls were two of the places I wanted to visit the most in South America.
Where Did I Go?
Santa Elena de Uairen, Mount Roraima, Ciudad Bolivar, Angel Falls, and Maracaibo. I arrived from Brazil by land, and left for Colombia by land as well.
Total Days: 18
Total Expenses: US$807
Transportation, hotel rooms and food are cheap. What made my expenses increase are the two tours I made to Angel Falls and Roraima, although they…
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?
