quiskies posted Cheap Gold? on the Venezuela forum:
Hi Folks, is this a reasonable idea? Bring into Venezuela $100 and exchange it in the black market. I don't know the exchange rate, so I'll conservatively guess 200 Bolivars to the USD. Now I have 20K Bolivars. On the web site goldrate24 it is showing around 7000 Bolivars for an ounce of gold. Could I now buy almost 3 ounces of gold, worth $3300 in the USA, for my original $100?

Canadian male, looking at moving back to Venezuela. I lived in San Cristobal for 14 months and fell in love with the place and the people. No matter where I go my heart is still there, however. . . . What are the hazards, now with Maduro and what is it like to get residency there. Any and all thoughts welcome, even the ones that tell me I am crazy to consider going back. Bring it. . . . . . . . .

Sandrroy, Well, you are a very tough nut to crack and I will just leave it at that. As far as family, I have none! My last living family member died 5 years ago. I am the only one in history to last past the age of 55 in my family, so no worries eh! Blessings and I wish you peace and happiness in whatever comes your way.

I wouldn't recommend some parts of Detroit as a safe place to visit! Be that as it may, your choice, your life and your future. What's your family's take on the situation? Good luck with whatever you do!

Does anyone know a way to exchange Venezuelan currency to USD when I'm back in the USA?

Just use them as tips when you get mediocre service at a restaurant
sandrroy replied most recently with:
I would imagine if you went to area with a large Venezuelan community, as in Miami, there might be someone wanting to change money but at what rate??? The Gov't rate is 6.3:1 and the blk mkt rate is almost 99:1 Good luck! Bolivares are generally considered worthless outside of Vzla as no other country uses them or accepts them as legal tender. Why take them away with you?

I am considering a move to Caracas in the near future. I would be living in Altamira area. Any advice or tips - both positive and negative, would be welcome. Thank you

Altamira is by far the.place to live in caracas, you have subway nearby, is close to great malls and is in the "safe" part of caracas, its still dangerous but not so bad.
