Currency Tip - At the time I was there the exchange rate was 2900 Bolivares to the Pound. It has now gone up considerably. You should take US dollars with you and these can then be exchanged either at the airport, in the main town of Porlamar or at the Bureau De Change at Hotel California in El Yaque. This will however incur a commission charge of 8%.
I would like to thank Jort, Bryony, Junior, Marie, Mariecel, Renaldo and everyone else in El Yaque for all the laughter and fun and a truly great trip.
