Travel Vaccinations for Venezuela

The table below provides a general guide as to the Travel Vaccinations that may be advised to you for travel to Venezuela

Caracas,set high above the sea amidst soaring mountains, is one of the most dramatic capitals in South America, and a perfect place to begin your tour of Venezuela. In this extremely fast paced city, old meets new, almost at every turn. Of note is the fact that Caracas is the birthplace of Simón Bolivar, called El Liberador, who freed many South American countries from Spanish rule, and there is an excellent museum dedicated to his memory, not far from city centre. When the buzz of the city gets too much, tranquillity awaits just north of Caracas, in El Avila National Park. A worthwhile side trip is a tour to Angel Falls, in the south east, the world’s highest uninterrupted waterfall, cascading a dramatic 979 metres. Before you finalise your trip to Venezuela, plan a visit to our Travel Health Clinic, to have the necessary Vaccinations you will require for travel to Venezuela.

Incredible service – so helpful
Excellent service! Chazile went above and beyond to prepare me for my travels to south east Asia. Very kind, sharp and added helpful bits of information that will be useful during my travels. Even created a vaccine booklet for me that I asked for to keep track of my vaccines for the future. Highly recommended The London Vaccination Clinic. Thanks again Chazile 🙂 Nick

Travel vacines

Attended a consultation for travel vacines, the nurse explained everything with care, provided good advice. We then add a follow up consultation with a different nurse for the vaccines and was also very kind and professional. Was very impressed, we did not feel pressured to have more vacines then reasonable and both nurses gave pricing information upfront.

Very positive experience

Really easy to book and the nurse who I saw in Liverpool Street was really kind and helpful. She went through my vaccination history, what I needed for my trip and explained everything I needed to know ahead of administrating the vaccine I needed.
I am glad I arrived early as the venue was tricky to find as the name of the building has changed so doesn’t match Google maps. Put me in a slight panic as I thought I was going to miss my appointment but I found it in the end!

My nurse was a beautiful soul inside…

My nurse was a beautiful soul inside and out. I have a fear of needles and she was so patient and reassuring from beginning to end. She asked me questions, helped me to relax and made me feel like an individual rather than just someone on the list for the day.

Further Travel Health Advice for Venezuela

Drinking local tap water, no matter where you travel, is never a good idea. Use only bottled water,and also use bottled water for brushing your teeth, no matter which area you visit. Avoid ice cubes, and fountain drinks.

The Venezuelan climate is tropical, with high humidity. In mountain areas, temperatures are lower than the country’s mean average temperature which hovers around 24 C. Coastal and low lying areas have hotter temperatures, up to around 30. Wear light, comfortable clothing and use a sunblock even when the sky is overcast.

Venezuelan food has varied influences, from Andean to Spanish, Italian and Caribbean, and experimentation is the key. One of the most popular breakfast treats is simply deep fried cornmeal, sometimes mixed with bananas, called Mandoca. Corn is featured in many dishes, including the national bread, Arepa. Seafood dishes have a definite Caribbean and Creole influence. Side dishes fruit such as baked plantain, rice and black beans. Some favourite and unique drinks are Chicha, a rice based drink, and Papelón con limon, is a delicious mixture of sugar cane and lemon. Do be careful with unwashed vegetables, and avoid street vendors.

In Venezuela, it is best to seek care through Private clinics. Generally, health care services are good, but It is best to find out more before travelling to remote locales. Bring enough money with you to pay for any health care you might need, since most private health care providers expect payment in cash.

Protect yourself, and your family, with comprehensive travel health insurance which will cover your intended itinerary and any unusual activities.

As a general rule, Caracas can be a dangerous place, and care should be taken. Leave your valuables in a safe place before touring. Don’t wear jewellery, or anything that might attract a potential thief. On tours outside the capital, use an established tour guide, and if you are in Caracas at night it’s best to use taxis.
