Product Description:
“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page.” – Saint Augustine As a born and raised Venezuelan, I was always surrounded by natural beauty, color, mesmerizing views. However, as a little kid I did not appreciate the breath taking quality of the landscapes I would run into, at least not enough. I felt, somehow, apathetic and unaffected, to the point where I even considered moving to a different continent. When I grew older, I had the opportunity to travel my country from north to south, east to west, an eye opening experience that would change the way I saw Venezuela forever. I swam in the crystalline waters of Los Roques, I played with the snow at the top of the Pico Bolívar, I contemplated the majestic beauty of Canaima. All these places had a profound impact on my life, inflicting a desire to speak up for my nation, to build a stronger pride for my home. I used to think that flying around the world would allow me to show some gratitude for the people I got to know and the lands I explored during my childhood. To my surprise, I didn’t have to leave to find my voice; I didn’t need to spend months away from our national treasures or to miss my loved ones to regain inspiration. This book is an open invitation you won’t be able to refuse, 50 reasons to meet my biggest muse to date: Venezuela. Let me guide you through paradise in these pages.

Product Description:
An influential oil producer with a colorful and charismatic president at its helm since 1999, Venezuela is a vast, sometimes frustrating, but never dull country. It is one of the most complex countries in Latin America and one of the least understood. An ambitious attempt to benefit the poor and redistribute oil wealth by President Hugo Chavez has seen a major political transformation in recent years that has put a severe strain on its traditional ties with the USA. He has made steadfast attempts to confront his powerful northern neighbor and reduce Venezuela’s economic dependence on the United States. However, Miami remains the top holiday destination for Venezuelans traveling abroad, baseball beats soccer as the preferred sport, and teenage girls still cover their bedroom walls with American idols like Justin Bieber. Venezuelans are known for being friendly, gregarious, and outgoing. They value family over everything and love to criticize the status quo, but they are also fiercely proud and protective of their homeland and react poorly to criticism of their country from outsiders. Culture Smart! Venezuela takes you beyond the stereotypical descriptions of a tropical petro-state, famous for its beauty queens and its populist president, to provide you with an insider’s understanding of the country and its people. Practical tips, valuable insights, and vital statistics will help you get to the heart of this vibrant, sometimes contradictory, and increasingly important country.

Product Description:

Caracas is a cosmopolitan city, congested and noisy. The restaurants in Caracas are still excellent and have a lot to offer. The people of Caracas are usually quite hospitable and friendly. Caracas is a city of contrasts. El Rosal and Las Mercedes are the most exclusive districts of the city at present.

The boulevard of Sabana Grande is the main commercial corridor of the city and is visited by more than 500 thousand people every day. Plaza Bolívar, Plaza El Venezolano and Plaza Diego Ibarra are the most emblematic of the historic center.

The city is a modern, dynamic and diverse city where multiple realities converge at the same time. The architectural, cultural and socioeconomic identity of Caracas has been fragmentation and is the key to understanding Venezuela.
