Always ! take your passport - and not only a copy - with you. Not only its law in Venezuela to carry it with you. The Peninsula Paraguana is a very attrative place for traffickers and smugglers - so there are often military check points. We experienced three check points within 5 km and had to unpack our backpacks each time. Unfortunately my friend forgot her pasport - the military only didn´t arrest her because our taxi driver was known to them. And as i heard venezualean prisons aren´t very tempting..... So be prepared.

Maybe a special attraction for the locals, but definately not an attraction for people, visited other regions in this small world, like the exceptional dunes of Namibia, even the dunes of our belgian coast.

Favorite thing: Santa Ana de Coro, generally known simply as Coro, is one of the oldest cities in Venezuela - and its full of old beautiful and particularly colourful colonial buildings. The town was founded in 1527 by Juan de Ampíes, and in 1993 it became Unesco World heritage site. The reason is simple. its ochre, blue, red, yellow and so on buildings.
Fondest memory: The colours of the rows of houses - very cheerful. And an incredible museum: the ventana de hierro... it was an interesting visit with a spanish-only speaking guide and our italian-only sometimes inappropriate comments
