Hello, this is the first time I travel to Caracas.
I have been reading this forum and other websites.
My main concern is the kidnappings.
My hotel is in Las Mercedes and my plane arrives after 9PM
The first thing they say is not to travel at night but this was the only thing my travel agent could get me.
They also say that the road from the airport to caracas is very dangerous at night,
I will be plainly dressed and will only carry a small carry on bag,
no watch, credit cards, jewellery or expensive electronics apart from my iPhone and small amount of cash.
If I'm kidnapped, they will surely be disappointed.... unless they ask for ransom. Am I being paranoid?
Should I change to arrive at an earlier time?
Any tips to get from the Airport to the hotel safely would be appreciated.
