I had always been very wary about going to Venezuela after hearing and reading about the high crime rates in Caracas. In fact, I was advised from Venezuelan friends not to go to Caracas. Fortunately, I chanced upon Nelson's website and with the help of Nelson, I had a wonderful time in Venezuela. I must clarify that I did not... More

Perhaps what impressed me the most was Nelsons genuine willingness to help make your stay even better. During my stay Nelson didn't mind give up his time to give me insightful information and general tips, it´s evident he knows what he is talking about and he is a great host. In the rooms you enjoy privacy, tidiness and security. I... More

Although we didn´t stay at Nelson´s Place, he booked us in to another local hotel and picked us up from the airport. He also brought currency for us at a good rate and said that as long as we were in Venezuela, he would help us out. If you want an organised, positive start to your trip in Venezuela (and... More

Hi, I didn't stay in Nelson's place because it was full up but Nelson was very helpful in setting us up with an alternative hotel (La Floresta, which was perfectly fine for a night and in the most safe area according to all accounts) and gave up loads of time to discuss, advise and organise a trip to Angel Falls...

As I reminisce about my trip around the world at about the same time last year, I couldn't forget the fond memories I had of Venezuela ... thanks to Nelson, his family and their warm hospitality! During my trip I stayed at various types of accommodation from top class to safari camps but nothing beats the personal attention Nelson gave... More

In Feb 2013 I had the pleasure of visiting Caracas. I contacted Nelson who in a nutshell, gave me total peace of mind. He organised a pickup contact which was one less worry. The original plan was to spend a night at his place but as he did not have a room for me, he very kindly sorted out an... More

caracas is a bit tricky, but with nelson's help it is very manageable. nelson helps you in ways that hotels will not. he provides fair currency exchange, and he is genuinely concerned about the safety of his guests. he will help you decide exactly which places to visit and when, and how to navigate the city safely. bolivares are useless...

I decided to visit some friends in Caracas at the very last minute. I contacted Nelson to book a stay in his apartment but unfortunately the place was not available. However, Nelson arranged everything for me and even got me a very good hotel in Altamira practically at the 11th hour, for which I'm extremely thankful. Nelson is, hands down,... More

Nothing beats Nelson's Place. It was clean and spacious. There was a full kitchen and a dining room with a television. Our room was nice and cool, with a computer for us to use. But best of all, is Nelson's hospitality. He took us all over Caracas and showed us things. If we had been left to our own, we... More
