Expats, digital nomads and retirees living in Venezuela responded:

"Expats and digital nomads living in Venezuela often appreciate the country's vibrant culture, friendly people, and stunning natural beauty. They also enjoy the low cost of living, which allows them to stretch their budget further. On the other hand, they may find the political and economic instability in the country to be a challenge, as well as the lack of reliable internet access and other modern amenities. Additionally, the high crime rate and the difficulty of obtaining visas can be a deterrent for some," remarked one expat in Venezuela.
