Hello,
Can anyone currently living in Venezuela please share your opinions as to which cities are best to live in overall for an Expat family? Which cities offer the highest overall quality private healthcare, available food, safety and things to do for long term living in country and paying with USD. How does one deal with the day to day currency fluctuations and money changing safely? Any advice tips or tricks would be wonderful. Thanks in advance for any of your thoughts.

Greetings from Thailand,
How safe is Columbia to live in and what is a resonable amount to spend each month for quality living. I was in Bogota many years ago and was inquiring about where the donut shop was and was told by the bell-hop, it was too dangerous to go there. This was a sunday morning. Please fill me in as much as you can. I have been in Thailand since 2002 and am now get restless for a new location. Thanks a lot.
Phil originally from Georgia in the USA.

It is nice to read a positive report here.

I know "everybody" says run the other way and don't look back, but I am still interested in coming to VZ.

My plan is to come down, teach English and technology, and integrate into the community. I certainly don't fit into the rich American stereotype.

Caracas might be a bit much, as I am used to living in smaller cities, so I will be shopping for just the right spot to roost.

My feeling, not yet confirmed, is that VZ is resilient, has just about hit bottom after years of difficulty, and may be poised for a rebound. Maybe this is a good time to be there to be part of the rebuilding...

Thoughts?

I lived in Venezuela some years ago near the village of Rio Chico in the development of Los Canales. This location is on the coast about 80 to 100 miles east of Caracas.

I never felt the least threatened anywhere I went in country and found that once people learned I was studying Spanish every day and was not a tourist was accepted warmly.

Of course if one was to go out and about dressed in expensive clothes with a gold watch and with large US bills hanging out of pockets, like just about anywhere you'd probably have trouble.
