I realise that budgets vary hugely from person to person, but could anyone give me a vague idea of the per day rate in dollars I should bring for a probably 2 week trip to the north west coast of Venezuela? I will be travelling between the cities by bus and looking to stay in fairly cheap (but safe) accommodation. In Colombia I tend to spend around 10 dollars maximum on food per day (I don't know if prices are remotely similar for food or not though).
Also, 1USD = 6288 BSF on the official rate. Everyone says take care not to get ripped off when changing on the black market - what should I be hoping to get per dollar?
Many thanks in advance
