We found US is the best to take, you get a better exchange rate when changing them into Bolivaires. We didn't take travellers cheques as we weren't sure how easy they were to change. At least with the US dollars you can get a better exchange rate with your tour operation, taxi drivers or in the stores, they give you more than what is the posted rates at the banks and hotels. Take plenty of US $1 bills as you can use these for tipping as well, they appreciate them.
