On December 31st most places are full or unavailable for some reason. Generally, this day is somewhat chaotic; it doesn't mean you won't be able to find anything, though. Maybe, it ain't gonna be cheap. On that day, I think, paying a taxi is the safest way to get to the city from the airport. I'd recommend booking a hotel room in advance and then on January 2nd making it to a cheaper place if that's the case. At what time will you be arriving? How long are you planning to stay? Maybe some other folk could give us some more ideas!!!!

A black car is a taxi belonging to the airport official taxi line. These are the ones you should look for. You can get a glimpse of the airport by looking at the pics following this link: http://www.venezuelatuya.com/caracas/aeropuerto.htm

There, you will be able to see some black cars parked in front of the airport: those are the ones I'm writing about. I am not sure whether you can book one online; if you wish, you can try to contact one of the authorized lines at: 00582123528555.
00582123552770
00582127941264 (Taxi Tours)

Talk to them and determine if you can book a taxi in advance!

Success!!!

Travel Tips for Caracas

Arriving at Caracas Airport and how it REALLY is!

by Athensfilippos

Caracas Airport: The only hussle is the waiting line to get ur passport checked. Expect to waste a couple of hours there. After u get ur luggages a somehow official guy approaches u (they all take turns) who might even speak english to help u out on taking a taxi. DO change ur euros! Ask him to change euros in a better rate than the official. Official is 3, his friends will give u 7. Later on on ur trip u might find rates closer to 8. Not such a big difference. So, do change 200-300 euros to be certain that u have enough money. Since all the guys are connected and they know u'll pay the taxi with the money they just gave u i don't think that there going to be fake money. Expect to pay something like 150-170bolivares (20euros) to get u to the city.

Nothing to freak out about, don't get stressed, just use ur common sense as u do while in your own country. Is as simple at that. We stayed in Altamira and we didn't feel any danger at all! We walked to restaurants, bars, malls , clubs and returned by foot at 4am for 3-4 nights. No problem at all! Since there are so many people walking by in the Altamira area I think it's pretty safe.
We had a very good time in Caracas and this whole mountain/capital and many things to do would probably get me back to Caracas. The funniest thing is because all blogs write about how dangerous Caracas is during our 4days of stay we only saw 1 foreigner!!
We liked it, because unlike the rest of the country (at least where we went) it was more of a city--a weird one, but still a city. Has its cinemas, clubs, italian bistros... When i travel i love having this option too. Makes me feel less of a tourist and more like a local guy...
And by the way, the women especially in Caracas are super hot!

Just getting out and wandering around Caracas is worthwhile. While the city is a bit grubby and smoggy, it does provide the visitor with the experience of visiting a typical Lantin American city. Wander through the markets along Sabana Grande or just sit and watch the old fellas playing chess. Don't miss trying a cachapa (hot corn fritter) with cheese and ham - delicious at just 1,000 bolivares.

STAYING SAFE

by cheesecake17


Caracas is a dangerous city. Don’t walk about at night, dress down and don’t carry lots of money.

Travel in organised groups whenever possible, using reputable air and bus companies.

Carry your passport at all times or you might get arrested for being without proper identification.

Make sure you have adequate travel insurance. Medical treatment in Venezuela is very expensive so check you are fully covered.

Seek medical advice on vaccinations before travelling.

Make sure you have enough funds for your stay. In major cities credit cards and traveller’s cheques are widely accepted. Otherwise travel with US Dollars in cash......BEWARE.. credit card fraud, which is a serious problem in Venezuela.

DONT get involved with drugs. Drug trafficking is a serious crime and drug smugglers face minimum 10-year prison sentences in dreadful conditions

'Sabana Grande Accomm. (Cheap Eateries and Rest.)

by travelife

The first morning in my hotel I had a stroll around the area and found many cheap eateries. The problem with the meat and ingredient inside. Its not easy to get the idea. But yes, I knew empanada de pollo which has chicken inside and had this wonderful meal. Coming from Cuba I found Venezuela cheap. There are quite a few restaurants and café in the area and always full of people. I would not say the area was nicely maintained but rubbish here and there.
