This coming Saturday I have a flight leaving at 6AM from the Caracas airport (about two hours from my apartment in Valencia). I’m going to Colombia- yay!!
My problem is that I have been thinking that my flight was leaving from the Valencia airport! This means I don’t have my hotel booked yet! This is a problem because at any holiday (and usually a couple of days before the holiday) Venezuelans travel and many try to leave the country to get stuff that they can’t find here (toilet paper, shampoo, soap come to mind).
Not having a hotel is a problem because everything takes longer to book in Venezuela. I either have to call and wait on the line for someone to eventually pick up, or I have to email and place back and forth. While occasionally you might be able to book a hotel online, they will then charge your US credit cards and it is always better to pay in Bs.
Anyway, I’m still searching for a hotel near the airport that has an available room with two beds in case anyone has any ideas.
Wish me luck!
