  • World's Best Hammocks are Made in...

    Prior to 1492, sailors slept on the ship deck in misery. But, Spanish sailors found natives of the Caribbean sleeping in hammocks, and a great invention for comfortable sleep was discovered. The hammock is very restful for the back and children love to swing in one. The correct way to sleep in one is with the body stretched out in a perpendicular...


    THE AMERICAN BOOK SHOP has moved to Centro Comercial Centro Plaza which is a shopping mall located in Los Palos Grandes neighbourhood. It has quite a selection of English books. I was looking for Latin American literature in English, but they only have a few books from Mario Vargas Llosa and no one else (from South America, I mean). And they were...


    The massive Centro Sambil is a huge shopping mall where the beautiful and hip people of Venezuela go shopping at. Here you can find all the stylish shops, banks, internet cafes, etc... The fashion sense here is the complete opposite of that at Sabana Grande.


    There is a handicraft market with temporary carts on La Plaza de Las Heroinas next to the cable-car station.Next to the plaza, there is another covered market with fixed stalls selling jewellery, woollies, wooden crafts, etc...

  • Quibor Ceramics and Other Handicrafts

    Barquisimeto claims to be Venezuela's music capitol. There are plenty of good Llanero beef restaurants, and so traditional music--the cuatro, harp, and maracas--are likely to be found in the evenings. But, our travels to the dry desert state of Lara are primarily to visit Quibor and Tintorero where folk art is made. The ceramics of Quibor are...

  • Best bargains

    Local supermarkets are best value. Buy spirits, rum in particular less than £1 per bottle. 200 marlboro cigarettes £8. Sunglasses are another good buy. These goods are cheap. Clothes and electrical goods are European prices

  • Buying Gasoline

    When buying gasoline in Venezuela it is very cheap. Do the math. $1.00 = 2150 Bolivars. At 8732 Bolivars for 90.02 litros, that would be $.045 per litro, or about $.17 per gallon.

  • Markets in Western Venezuela

    In the mountainous western region of Venezuela, it's fun to wander around the local markets. The largest and most well known is the Mercado Principal in Merida. Here you can shop for food and souvenirs while soaking up the atmosphere. If you venture outside of the city (you would be crazy not to), you will find smaller markets in the mountain...

  • Buying Iguana to eat

    Iguana are not easy to find. If you ask around, and someone can catch one, then you can purchase an Iguana to eat. They tell me you have to know how to cook them. The flavor is good, but I don't know if you can get Iguana in any restarant. The eggs are also eaten, but the taste is very strong. You never know until you try it.

  • All those things you can live without ...

    The shop has two floors - on the first one you can buy fruits and vegtables - the second one is in fact a galery of local art products.But no specials things - mostly wooden handy craft from Ecuador and hammocks, even wall carpets showing the beautiful Andes mountains, but in Ecuador. Fruit Bolivar

  • Fresh meat

    Here you can buy just about any part of the animal you want. Vendors were also selling all kinds of fresh fish. There were no insects on the meat.

  • Buy Handicrafts at Hannsi

    Hannsi is just beautiful ! You'll find local craft from all over Venezuela. It's the perfect place to get that special gift or souvenir ! Anything Venezuelan, from refrigerator magnets to furniture !
