Reviewed 5 January 2015

I booked late and was told there are not accomodations for Christmas. I should have only booked 1-2 nights and taken the chance for my other 6 nights. The room was very small and at first the owner gave me the smallest room (and I am sure I overpaid as an non Venezuelan tourist for 8 days). Because the lock did not work, the owner gave me a larger room. Everything is very old and run down. The equivalent in the US would be a homeless shelter (I imagine).

The food was terrible. The owner must be tired from cooking everyday since it was only me in the posada (food is included), she was lazy and cooked the same food everyday and it was unimaginative. I felt like a dog waiting to eat the food.

Finally, I couldn't stay the entire 8 days (I only stayed 4 nights of the 8 that I paid for) nor could I eat the food after several days.

Note on Venezuela: Be thankful for the massive currency exchange rate with local people (black market) and ask on average 5 people what the price of anything is or rate is because everyone will try to overcharge you for everything. (I try to be a detective when abroad and triangulate the information by asking many, many people so you don't get screwed.) Many seemingly normal people will give you a terrible rate (waiter at the bar near the church). There is a huge margin of overpayment, scams so the massive currency adjustment just pays for the price you will "overpay" as a tourist. I am not sure if Venezuela is ready for foreign tourists.
