    The tarantulais not actually dangerous and are in fact very timid. You'll need the help of a good guide to help you find a nest and then lure it out gently with a stick

    DO NOT GIVE THIS COMPANY YOUR CREDIT CARD INFO!
    I rented a SIM card. I made one call with it. The charged me 140 euro and do not answer my calls or emails. They are simply THIEVES!

    Following up on my previous post; Rent-a-Cell has apparently noticed me since I posted this complaint and they called me long distance to say that they would return my money. Of course that was two weeks ago and I have not heard from them since. So they are still THIEVES. Do not do any business with Rent-a-Cell at the Chavez airport.
