Synopsis

"Packed with in-depth information." -- Philadelphia Inquirer. "Written in a highly readable style, this guide seems to have omitted nothing." -- Pittsburgh Post. Written by an author who has visited the country over 40 times, Venezuela Alive offers a wealth of practical information for the discerning traveler. The focus is on shopping, hotels, dining and sightseeing, with a good measure of entertaining sidetrips to round out the picture. All profiles feature detailed reviews based on firsthand experience. Practicalities getting there (bargain package deals, air passes, by boat), money matters, what to pack, cuisine, the people and culture, history, sports and geography are covered in the introduction. The author then goes on to look at Caracas, El Littoral, Maragarita Island, Puerto La Cruz, Cuman, Mrida and Canaima, to name but a few of the hotspots. For each, he lists places to stay and eat, all rated with the unique Alive rating system. Sunup to Sundown sections tell of the best beaches, where to find duty-free bargains, sightseeing trips, historical walks, offshore excursions and other activities, while the After Dark sections feature jazz bars, nightclubs, piano bars, discos, cabarets, theater shows and cinemas.
