Trip Report Venezuela trip report - travelling independently using public transport

Jump to last reply

Within November/December 2009 we have been to Venezuela, travelling independently and using public transport. My route included Roraima, Ciudad Bolivar, Puerto Ayacucho, the Llanos, trek in the PN Sierra Nevada, Merida, Coro, Puerto Colombia / Choroni, PN Henri Pittier, and Caracas. We have not found Venezuela as dangerous as it is often presented here and on other sites and never felt threatened in any way.

When preparing the trip I sometimes used information gathered at this site - to repay this help I have put a rather detailed report on my experience for others to use on the internet - if interested check it out at my site:

Happy travels to everyone.
