There are budget and midrange hotel options in most towns, though Caracas has few quality budget accommodations. Popular tourist areas are packed to the rafters in high season (July and August) and on major holidays (Christmas, Carnaval and Semana Santa), when beach towns will rarely have vacancies. Campgrounds are rare, though you can rough it in the countryside. Camping on the beach is popular, but be cautious and don’t leave your tent unattended. Venezuela has almost no hostels. Be aware that during the day urban budget hotels often double as hourly-rate love motels, which are a common – though not necessarily sleazy – option in this privacy-starved country. However, even the cheapest places still provide towels and soap.
