Caracas with a 3-year old?

Caracas with a 3-year old?


Former Caracas resident going back to visit husband's family with our son. Very concerned about crime and security in general. When I lived there ('95-'96) I felt relatively safe just following normal precautions like no jewelry, not carrying too much cash, etc., now I'm nervous traveling with a child.

Any advice?

I'm sure your family there would give you the best advice about where to go and what to avoid. After all, they would have your best interests at heart.

It depends where you go. I was in Caracas doing tourism and although everybody looked at us knowing that we were tourist (with video cameras and taking pictures everywhere) we felt safe.
