3. Leaving Caracas

A travel blog entry by kesvic2013

On our last full day in Caracas we started off as normal with dry scrambled eggs and toast. Not gonna miss that. We then decided to explore the Parque del Este, recommended by Nelson. On first glance the park did not appear to be that interesting - grass, people etc. But on following the signs we found our way to the aviary. Whilst caged birds are …

2. Whirlwind tour of Caracas

A travel blog entry by kesvic2013

We touched down in Caracas at about 5.00am unsure of what/who awaited us. We cleared immigration without too much fuss and got our bags. Before going through to arrivals we had to re-scan all our luggage - not too much of a problem for us but the woman in front with 5 suitcases and a dog struggled a little.

When we came out we waited by …

Here I am sitting in my comfortable accommodation in Santiago writing this. I wanted to make sure I wrote about Venezuela after leaving, so I could recall the experience more fondly... also wary that Immigration Officials might chance upon my unsavory words to follow stop me from leaving.

When I first booked the flight to Venezuela, I …

I've always loved the sound of the city name, Caracas. It sounds festive and musical as it rolls off the tongue.

Caracas!

Poor Caracas has such a bad reputation. Since 2008 it has the dubious honour of being called the "Murder Capital of the World". Caracas has a dark history of kidnappings, bag snatching, random violence …

Going Crackers in Caracas

A travel blog entry by els_and_peter

Peter writes:
Kaieteur Falls seemed a fitting finale to our exploration of the three Guyanas, so it was time to move on. The logical next destination was Venezuela, but unfortunately an ongoing border dispute with Guyana means there is no official land crossing between the two countries, so we ended up flying there via Trinidad. As with …

    Pretty much the only good thing about this place is its location in Altamira. The hotel itself is old. The room we got had old-school slanting window panes which do not fully close properly. As a result, you can hear noise from the street, even up on the 9th floor. Room TV is small, but there are many channels (mostly Spanish) with cable TV. Location wise is great, just south of Altamira subway which is considered a safer area in Caracas (relative to other areas, but we still made sure to stick indoors at night). Within walking distance, there is a supermarket about 3 blocks west and the terminal for Expresos Ejecutivos, a premium bus company which services other cities in Venezuela. It is more expensive, but definitely nicer buses and safer. Their operations is like an airline, with proper checked baggage counters and ticket confirmations. From my experience, we found other passengers who appear more affluent and able to speak some English.

    We were on the tenth (top) floor 108, no real view, 2 smallish rooms one double one single, tired but clean. Free slow WIFI in the room. Friendly english speaking reception. Bathroom has hot water. Aircon and TV. Located in a safe part of the city, no problems walking around during the day. Friendly staff in shopping area. Restaurant near hotel has an english speaking cashier.
