Hello, how about colonia tovar and some paragliding? just an hour drive up from airport beautiful little quaint town up in the mountains and from there you can drive down to the beach for a day or two.

Venezuela: Bit of advice - get out of Caracas as quick as you can. IColonia Tovar is a nice day visit, although it is a bit expensive to stay overnigght. In 10 days I would suggest you choose a couple from the following options: Orinoco Delta (rivers, jungles,indigenous communities), Margarita island (Caribbean beaches) Los Llanos (wild animals) Merida (los Andes mountains) Sabana Grande (Roraima table mountains). have fun.

I suggest you buy the lonely planet guide, which has very good summaries and suggestions. I believe the guide also include suggested 7 and 14 day itineraries.

10 days is good to go to Morrocoy and after that Merida and los llanos! in that way you will have Beach, Andes and Amazone!

''if u can dont go''

'' i had a gun put to my head i dont know how many times''

Does that mean it was like a daily occurnce? (the gun to head thing)

I think I would remember, if I had a gun put to my head, excatly how many times it occured.

I have lived in Venezuela for 25 years and have yet to have a gun put to my head or any other part of my body for what that is worth.

libexi must have been living in a really nice part of town!!
