Travel warnings and alerts for Venezuela - Get the latest on: natural disasters, political instability and civil unrest. This page is updated as needed, so check back regularly.
For hundreds of years Venezuela has travelled a rocky political road. Bloody coups, civil wars, violent demonstrations and paralyzing strikes all feature in its history - even up to the present day.
Venezuela is not a place you'd go to for your first overseas holiday. It's not a place you go to for beach time and pina coladas. It's a place you go for an adventure.
Venezuela is home to just about every scary disease on the planet. You may encounter rabies-infected bats, yellow fever, cholera, malaria, Chagas disease, water borne parasites, typhoid, dengue fever and all of the hepatitis family.
If the criminals kidnappers and drug gangs don't scare you, if you brush-off the prospect of hurricanes, landslides and earthquakes, if you have a cross-country chicken bus ride for breakfast, then Venezuela's the place for you!
