Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

With more than 30 years of experience scouring the best this South American country has to offer, the authors of Venezuela Alive bring a wealth of knowledge to this exploration of a place Arthur Frommer calls the next travel must. In addition to detailed descriptions of accommodations, restaurants, stores, sightseeing spots, and nightlife, the book offers useful tips in the margins of its pages, such as "If you are serious about an art purchase, try this shop" and "Aside from the building's historic significance, it also has an art gallery and offers fantastic views of the mountains." The walking tours of key sites are especially useful. The only thing this book seems to lack is an index.

Format: Paperback
I live in Caracas. I've been here two years now.
This book is the best PRACTICAL day to day info I have read in a publication BUT it is sadly out of date. I came online today to see if an update had been released since the 3rd edition, but it has not.
Much of the data is great in the general sense...you just have to keep in mind that anything regarding A) Money and B) Safety is wrong.
The Bolivar's value has dropped incredibly and exchange with the US $ is now illegal. Safety issues have grown and several places the book refers to are now inaccessible. Still, if you keep those things in mind, the rest of the book is outstanding. Waiting for an update!

There has been too many changes in Venezuela since January 1998, even the name of the country has changed. This book is okay to obtain a general overview of the country, however do not count on it to find accurated information on hotels, stores, restaurants, or even local airlines, most places do not exist anymore, and regarding prices they change everyday.

I took this book with me when I moved to Venezuela. Unfortunately, it did not help at all when I arrived. There was not enough information and it was very out-dated.
