I'm flying into Caracas airport in June where I'll be met by some friends that I'll be staying with. I'm an Irish girl in her twenties and I'm travelling alone. My friend's have warned me that when I collect my luggage, security go through it. They also recommended that if I bring over presents I should take the tags off them as security officers might take them. Also they suggested I don't bring any valuables. Is this the case and has anyone ever had problems at this point of the journey?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
