Journey via Caracas
Alternatively to the Condor flight (this winter season only Wednesdays from Frankfurt) you can book scheduled flights via Caracas almost daily. The transit is now easier and safer than in the past. Unfortunately the baggage will still not be checked through, as you have to pass customs in Caracas, but you can re-check in for national flights already inside the international terminal. Through a separate, secured tunnel you have direct access to the waiting area of the national terminal.

You may have followed the discussion about the safety situation and travel advice for Venezuela and Isla Margarita. In order to control the spreading insecurity about if and how to travel to El Yaque, we have spoken to one of the hotel managers on the spot, who lives there since many years. Here you find all important details:
Thanks to the local security service there have been no major incidents in El Yaque in the past winter season. A police station at the entrance to El Yaque, the local security officers and private security staff at all hotels are there for your safety. They are present 24/7.
It is safe to walk around El Yaque even during night time, but we recommend to follow the common rules, like in any other foreign region: do not walk alone, use busy and lit up streets and don’t show off any valuable. Opportunity makes the thief!
Valuables (notebook, photo camera, cash, credit card…)
In general it is safe to bring personal valuables such as notebooks, photo cameras etc. to El Yaque. Unfortunately there is no guarantee that your items are safe, even inside the hotels. We have a few advises:
- Do not leave any valuables visible in your room when you leave
We hope this information helps you to objectively assess the safety situation in El Yaque and supports your travel plans. We will be happy to assist with any further personal questions you may have.
