We will be staying at the Hotel Continental on La Ramba and was wondering if there is a western union near the hotel? What might be the hours for a Saturday. Thank you.
If you are considering using WU to either send or recieve money remember that all transactions inside Venezuela are subject to exchange control rules.
You will not be able to send US$ outside Venezuela.
If you receive dollars you will be paid in Bolvars, not US$, at the official rate of Bs.6,3 to US$1 not the much higher black market rate.
This also applies to any credit or debit card transactions you make inside Venezuela.
You might want to reconsider your options.
Completely agree with PlayaElAgua, WU and or paying with foreign credit/debit cards are not an option here. If you go that way, you will soon realice how expensive everything here is.
Bring cash to change or do a wire transfer to someone you can trust.
