Hi all, hope you're all doing ok. As most of you know we are in Barbados, and making our was slowly through the Caribbean to South America. Our original plan is to make our first stop in Venezuela, however we have had severe warnings from other travelers we've met about the state of the country and have been told NOT to go there. I have been looking at some travel advisory websites that say the same thing. I was quite surprised to hear any of this as I was not aware at all that Venezuela was in such a bad way. I can't really find much positive info on it, but I am reluctant to write the whole country off just yet. I just thought I would ask if you guys knew anything more about it, or had any connections with Venezuela who may be able to give me some more solid advice about whether to go there or not. I know Caracas and surrounding areas are pretty bad, but we were not planning to fly in anyway, we were planning to get a ferry from Trinindad. If you know anything I don't, I would be grateful for the info. Many thanks!
