Caracas and Margarita

by RezaShiraz1

I hear of the strong Muslim communities in Caracas, Isla Margarita, and a free zone. Can you tell me the neighborhoods or areas that have most Lebanese and conservative Muslims to visit...and most important the good Middle Eastern eatings. : )

Sorry I make reply to the post in wrong reply area before

In Caracas, you can check the area around "Mercado Municipal" of Chacao. Many lebanese have stores in that area. Don't expect them to be very conservative as most of them have lived in the country for many years and adopted many local costumes. You also can check the Mosque by "Colegio de Ingenieros" it's quite big and famous here.

Travel Tips for Caracas

Travelers check

by cheesecake17


Using US bank cards is that the actual rate was 1890 bolivares after charges...

Exchange houses and banks (not all) are exchanging dollars and travelers checks for BOLIVARES at the official rate...

I suggest is to ask the hotel or guess house where you are staying the most convenient place to go to exchange your money..

DO NOT plan on using your credit card or ATM card as it will end up costing you as much as 60% more than what you can receive for US dollars..

EXIT TAX at MAIQUETIA

by cheesecake17


As of april 2004 National flights from Maiquetia through INTERNATIONAL terminal (not local flights) the exit tax is Bs.86.300 or 43 US$ at the official exchange rate ...

A minimal airpot tax is also charged for national flights.....Bs.10.000 ..as of march 2004..

ALWAYS CHECK A MILLION TIMES with the airlines..they ke changing the fare all the time.

WHEN TO GO

by cheesecake17


The tourist season in Venezuela runs year-round so, theoretically, any time you visit is OK.

However, the dry season is more pleasant for traveling, though some sights - including the famous Angel Falls - are certainly more impressive in the wet season.

Also keep in mind the periods during which Venezuelans take their holidays.

They are mad about traveling to visit friends and family over
Christmas,
Carnaval (several days prior to Ash Wednesday)
Semana Santa (Holy Week; the week before Easter Sunday).

In these three periods, you'll have to plan ahead and do a little more legwork before you find a place to stay. On the other hand, these periods are colorful and alive with a host of festivities

Exchange control

by travelife

Venezelan Bolivares is a overvalued currency. At a official rate, so with the credit card payment you receive nearly 20% less than the open market rate. But if you are on a short trip, don’t make it a big deal. Many policies of current president Hugo Chavez made the rich community insecure and that’s how he intends to prevent quick outflow of foreign exchange.

Venezuelan dish

by Saringuis

One of the traditional Venezulean dishes is "Pabellon". It coonsists of black beans, fried platanos (sort of banana), rice and teared up beef cooked in a saus, with some cilantro bringing a certain freshness. To West-Euopeans it might look absolutely gross, but trust me, you do not want to miss out on this marvel!!!
