Dear people:

This is the questionary:

I've been to Venezuela twice in the last 20 months and it is not a destination any casual foreign backpacker should be considering. Period.

I spent spent quite a time there many years ago and have close friends, that's the only reason I returned.

Highly NOT recommended for normal backpacking travel at this time.

Cheers,
Terry

I think I would wait for things to simmer down. From what I've heard the last couple of months things have been getting quite heated in Venezuela. Unless anyone has some new information I personally would disuade people from visiting right now.

I packed there ten years ago. It was rough then. Now, I can't imagine. Still....my best travel day EVER was hiking among the tepuis in Venezuela.

I backpacked in Venezuela ten and nine years ago and loved it. I wouldn't go backpacking there now though!
