Welcome to Santa Elena de Uairén

Though the city is quite safe, it’s also a brazen black-market and smuggling hub. Gas prices in Brazil are almost 30 times higher than those in Venezuela, which means that there is serious money to be made. As a result there's a strong police and military presence around the town, but it shouldn't be anything to worry about as a traveler.
