I just read an excellent review by xadoc, and everything you pretty much need to know is there. I just have a few extra bits to fill in which I think would be helpful. The city has an excellent tube system, called the Metro, which is cheap and convenient. It is extremely handy for getting around...

Conscan be dangerous, english is not widely spoken

Venezuela has to be the most amazingly diverse country i have ever been to, and worry not, it is not the only place i have been. It ranges from the Andes in the West to the Gran Sabana and then onto the dense Jungle in the east. It has the world's tallest waterfall: Angel Falls, (discovered by...

Just to add a little about the specialist gold shops in Caracas..if you are spending about £150 or more on an item then you should be able to negotiate a hefty discount...at least 10%. like anywhere it helps to have the cash counted out for a quick sale.

Prowide variety, exotic, cheap

Consso much choice!

Venezuela offers many, many tasty dishes: Central to Venezuelan cuisine is maize. This is either ground when fresh and green to make the basis for "cachapas" or ground when ripe to make flour for "arepas" or "empanadas".
