Venezuelan chocolate is one of the best in the world. If you are flying from Caracas to Spain, buy the chocolate at the airport after the check in. If you buy before, in the antidrug control before the checkin, they will take your chocolate, they will open it, and they will break it in order to check if there are drugs in the chocolate.
Unique Suggestions: Buy the chocolate at the airport after the checkin.
Checkin flights going to Spain
If you are flying from Caracas to Spain, be ready to spend more than 2 hours in the check in process if you don´t arrive around 4 hours before the flight departs to the airport. Due to some antidrug special controls for flights going to Spain, you will be interviewed before the check in, then they will check all your luggague, and before you enter to the plane, you will be checked again... In conclusion, the day you have your flight, consider to leave for the airport from Caracas around 5-6 hours before the flight departs.
Unique Suggestions: Keep calm
Fun Alternatives: Arrive very early to the airport in order to avoid waiting on the long checkin queue
Parque del Este - NOT what you where told
Well I decided to venture out on my own to nearby Parque del Este. I heard so much good hipe about this place.. that there were animals such as exotic birds (including the only condor in latin america), etc. The park is FREE.. so that was good. I am from TEXAS, so I was desesperate to see GRASS.. All i saw was building after building so to get back in touch with nature.. I headed to this park. However the only animals I saw where ugly pigeons eating on crumps on the floor. After 30 minutes of circles around the park... and seeing old ladies exercise, I got bored and headed back home. PARQUE DEL ESTE is NOT worth your time. There is a little zone of plants that is very nice... with giant cactus and plants alike.. but again, IT IS NOT WORTH IT. (unless you have all the time in the world in ccs)
Unique Suggestions: JOG. Seems to be.. a good place for jogging and exercise.
Fun Alternatives: Instead of Parque del Este, you should try EL JARDIN BOTANICO.. or just walk around the UCV. UNiversidad Central de Venezuela. These two are right next to each other.

When you are on a cruise, the...
When you are on a cruise, the Cruise Director and the general Port Information gives you ample warnings about the same old common sense things. People still get robbed, still have pockets picked, we just do not worry about this sort of thing.
My old advice, walk tall, look people in the eye and smile. Talk to the raunchiest guy on the street. Never forget where you came from.
