"Take loads of insect reppelant..." Venezuela Warnings Or Dangers Tip by karenamanda

Venezuela Warnings and Dangers: 51 reviews and 18 photos

Take loads of insect reppelant & Malaria pills. Check out all rooms before checking in. Forget the bus service - it was almost non existant when we were there in 1995. This has got to be one of the most corrupt places on earth. Everyone in a uniform expects a bribe. Don't offer a bribe to any officials - you may end up getting arrested! Don't use or carry drugs - non nationals get much harsher treatment. Keep hold of your passport, even when showing it to officials - they have a habit of disapearing!
