Traveling within Venezuela is relatively easy. Be sure upon your arrival to exchange some money. If you are taking the charter flight, U.S. dollars are accepted as well as Venezuelan bolivares fuertes. You will need a few dollars in local currency to pay for domestic airport taxes for the flights between Caracas and Puerto Ordaz and for anything you may wish to purchase, eat or drink in the local airports. Each person should try and change perhaps $100 for use in the hotels and restaurants. The camp staff will take dollars as tip money, and in the hotel use a credit card.
The camp is located at approximately 6 degrees north latitude, and the sun can be a formidable concern. Be sure to bring plenty of sunblock with at least SPF 30. Most people prefer to use SPF 45. Venezuela experiences two seasons, the rainy season from May through November and the dry season from November through May. It is always a good idea to pack a rain poncho even during the dry season as unexpected storms are known to occur. Also, ziploc bags or other waterproof containers are a good idea to bring for these unplanned downpours to protect cameras and other susceptible things.
All persons traveling to Venezuela are
required to have a current passport on their person upon arrival. There
are no inoculation requirements, but anyone using medication should make
sure they have a complete supply for the duration of their trip.
SUGGESTED ITEMS TO BRING
The climate at HFC is moderate with daytime highs of 85-90 degrees, but
the lack of pollution in the air along with our proximity to the equator
can cause severe sunburn. In order to not spoil your trip, we suggest
using at least number 30 or higher sunblock. You can get a tan here while
using SPF 30. We also suggest you bring some after-sun aloe gel to take
the sting out of any exposed areas you might have gotten burned.
