This is a guest post.
My Latin Life here to tell you what I know about the lovely women of Venezuela. I first set foot in this beautiful but troubled country in 2013, right around the time of the death of its then socialist leader, Hugo Chavez. And let me tell you: I was fucking terrified. I was all too aware of the fact that Caracas was the world’s most dangerous city and a change of leadership didn’t exactly seem to promise any forthcoming stability. Luckily, I had a few locals to help me out. This is an important point and will make meeting Venezuelan girls a whole lot easier.
Venezuelan women are among the most beautiful women of the world. Although they aren’t as hot as Columbian women they are still some of the hottest in South America.
Before You Go:
I strongly recommend connecting with a local or two before touching down in the country. I was lucky to have met a group of three Venezuelans on a previous trip to Cuba, who stuck with me the entire time. As a result, I was able to see a lot more of the country and meet many more Venezuelans than I would have otherwise. They also kept me safe by showing me where and where not to go and exchanging money for me. That reminds me:
A Note on Exchanging Money in Venezuela:
You’re going to want to bring enough US dollars to float your entire trip. This is for two reasons. First, the official exchange rate (i.e. the one you’d get if you were to use your card) is horrid and will make Venezuela prohibitively expensive. Second, your credit cards and debit cards probably won’t work here anyway, at least not in the banks. Instead, you’ll be exchanging on the black market.
Now, this isn’t nearly as sinister as it sounds, but you do need to be careful not to get fucked over. I was lucky – my friend took care of everything and called a guy who magically turned my $400 USD into a grocery bag full of Bolivares as I waited nervously in his living room. Your hotel should also have a way of arranging an exchange for you at close to the black market rate.
Where to Stay:
In Caracas we stayed in a hotel in the, La Castellana district, a modern but characterless area of the city. It felt safe but take the usual precautions. Remember that safe is a relative term here – according to the locals, crime can go down at any place and at anytime. The Las Mercedes district would be another good option. This is where a lot of the nightlife and restaurants are located. If I were to go to Caracas again, I’d probably stay here.
Now for the important stuff. There is a certain mystique surrounding Venezuelan girls. This is likely because, unless you live in south Florida, you’re unlikely to ever meet one. Also, most people will probably never visit the country – if you haven’t heard, Venezuela isn’t exactly a tourism hotbed at the moment. Pair this with the fact that the country has the second most Miss Universe titles and the reason for the intrigue becomes evident. So, are Venezuelan girls as hot as everyone seems to believe or are they overhyped? The truth is somewhere in the middle.
If you go to Venezuela, it’s important to manage your expectations. In my humble opinion, from a physical standpoint (faces and bodies), the girls are pretty much the same as what you find in Colombia. No better, no worse. Perhaps unsurprising considering the shared history between the two nations. Where Venezuelan girls differ from their neighbors to the west, however, is in their personalities. Venezuelan girls are some of the warmest, most affectionate women I’ve met in Latin America. Mind you, it’s important to note that I was only in the country for 10 days, and my positive reception likely had a lot to do with the fact that tourists are rare and I was hanging out with Venezuelans. But nevertheless, I have never felt more welcomed by the women of any other country.
Venezuelan Women Stereotypes
Like I mentioned before, Venezuelan women are seriously beautiful and are some of the most beautiful women in the world. To match their beauty they have a ton of energy. With lots of excitement they love going to bars to drink and dance. If you can’t dance then don’t expect to be able to score one of the fine women from Venezuela and even dating them will be impossible.
They’re also fun to be around because they are typically pretty happy which makes sense given their high energy levels. Another reason why they’re fun is because they are also really sweet and will care for you. One buddy of mine who went the year before got sick and the Venezuelan women he was messing around with kept insisting on bringing him soup.
The negative stereotypes for Venezuelan women aren’t too bad actually. In fact, the primary ones won’t affect your quest, but it’s still good to be aware of these ahead of times.
- They tend to talk about politics a lot. This can be annoying, but it’s not a deal breaker.
- Love brands. Seriously, they’re obsessed with the fashion brands and often will relabel their clothes as a more reputable brand. They won’t expect you to know them, but they’ll expect you to understand their fascination with big brand names.
Like I mentioned, they are stereotypes that really aren’t that bad. Overall, they’re pretty ignorable. Use this knowledge to your advantage to increase your chances of dating Venezuelan women and then get what you were REALLY looking for.
Meeting Venezuelan Women:
As much as I’d like to say that I was slaying Venezuelans in true Bolivarian fashion during my short stint in the country, it’s simply not true. I only had sex with one Venezuelan during my trip, and she was one of the people I was traveling with. Needless to say, I didn’t test the waters here as thoroughly as I would have liked, but damn Venezuelan sex is awesome. But hopefully, my general observations can be of some use.
As I mentioned previously, the best thing you can do for yourself if you want to meet Venezuelan chicks is to connect with a local before you arrive. I suggest a guy, lest you end up cockblocking yourself by fucking your chaperone like I did. He can take you out and introduce you to people, i.e. women, and show you a bit of the nightlife. As a foreigner, you will attract a lot of positive attention and curiosity from Venezuelan girls. However, turning this interest into sex probably won’t be a cakewalk. Venezuelan women, although exceedingly friendly, didn’t strike me as particularly easy – it took a trip to Margarita Island before the girl I was traveling with let me inside.
Logistics will also pose a bit of a hurdle to meeting Venezuelan girls. Because the streets of Caracas are dangerous, bar hopping and venue changes don’t seem to be a thing. For the most part, people seem to go to a bar, stay at that bar and then go home. If you are staying far away from the venue you are trying to bring a gal back from, I’d place your chances of success at slim to none. You will also want to make sure that your Spanish is tight – not too many English speakers here.
Daygame vs. Nightgame:
- Daygame: From what I could discern, there is really only one option for meeting girls during the day in Caracas: malls. One of the few places in the city where people can let their guard down a bit and feel at ease. Sambil is the most famous mall in the city. Keep things safe and simple and do all your daygaming here or in other shopping centers, especially if you are alone or with other tourists. You will draw too much attention to yourself if you attempt to cold approach women on the street.
- Nightgame: This is a big part of the culture. Fortunately for you, all your daygaming and nightgaming can be done in the same area of the city: Las Mercedes. There are many malls and nightclubs concentrated in this area. We basically spent all of our time in the city here so I can’t comment much on other districts, but this appeared to be the place for partying. I highly suggest that you get a hotel as close as you can to the club/bar(s) you intend on visiting. I don’t remember the names of the places I went, but good nightlife spots can be researched beforehand or recommended by the Venezuelan connection you made prior to arriving. Since you’ll be visiting these places at night, you’ll want to minimize your risk by staying close. Also, this will be more conducive to bringing a girl back to your hotel room. I never did this but I imagine throwing a few Bolivares at the front desk should solve any problems they might have with overnight guests.
- Nightclubs: The dress code for places around here is formal – a dress shirt, nice jeans and decent shoes should be fine. The fact that you’re foreign should allow you and your friends to bypass any kind of face control that might be in place. The girls in the clubs we visited were among the fittest and best dressed I’ve ever seen in Latin America, and largely of European descent. Everyone was in groups, much like the scene in Colombia. We intermingled a bit, but penetrating these social circles seemed near impossible. I stuck with my group and didn’t do any approaching out of respect for the girl I was with, but if I did I would have had my work cut out for me.
I didn’t do any online game while in Venezuela due to obvious reasons, but from what I could discern a couple sites seemed to be the best. Badoo was incredibly popular among the locals. Starting off using this site may be the easiest way to meet some women in Venezuela. I did some pipelining and research on Latin American Cupid and was pleasantly surprised by the reactions. Like most countries, the girls you’ll find on this site will be especially interested in foreign men. Tinder seems to be gaining in popularity, as it is in most Latin American countries, especially in the capital of Caracas.
Although I had fun, I’m not too anxious to go back to Venezuela. Girls there are beautiful, but Caracas is quite an ugly metropolis and not being able to walk around the city carefree due to safety concerns is a bit of a downer. I’m sure the only thing that kept me from being robbed was being with other Venezuelans.
Also, it’s not the easiest place to meet girls…although the one I did hook-up with was responsible for some of the best sex I’ve ever had. Don’t know if this is a trait consistent with all Venezuelan women, but I like to hope that it is. But, if you’re hell bent on going now is the time – the current black market exchange rate is about 1 USD to 1100 Bolivares.
