Let us say for the sake of argument that we could go to Venezuela for 1½ week or so over Christmas. What should we see at that time of the year? (birds and other nature things taking the prime importance). And how safe and easy a travel country is Venezuela at this point?

thanks

Hi Niels
Appears you are having the same problems as me in trying to get info on Venezuela. I posted months ago and not one reply!
I am going next March (flight booked) and am currently making (slow) progress with the owner of a lodge with respect to putting some sort of itinerary together.Most lodges Ive emailed havn't even replied.
It doesn't appear to be a country very geared up for travellers though I do believe its well worth doing.
Have you looked at ''Birding Venezuela'' by Mary Lou Goodwin - very useful for sites/species/etc
If you make the trip would be interested to hear how you got on

Thanks Jeff,
for some private reasons we have put off Venezuela until later -- we are now planning for the easier to do visit to S Texas for this Christmas. Shame because there is a direct flight from here to Caracas at the moment ...
