Hold On To Your Stuff

Armand Tamzarian, May 9, 2012 at 6:18 am

as soon as you have your luggage, you head to the exit and you are swarmed with little dirty people. They ask you to change money and follow you while asking the same thing. Others keep asking if you need a taxi and they also follow you even after you politely decline. Not a nice place at all. Do not let go of your belongings or leave them unattended, they will be stolen. You will never feel more unsafe in your life when visiting this airport. Its staff will steal your belongings when searching your bags, so anything valuable must be put in your carry-on. The staff is absolute useless. Avoid at all costs.

CCS Isn't The Problem

Rolf Laager, November 19, 2009 at 2:01 pm

Over the last couple years I have flown into CCS a few times. I can’t complain about the airport itself, it is in pretty good shape. Immigration and emigration is a pain and I agree with earlier comments made. But I have to admit this was about the only place I felt safe around Caracas. As soon as you leave baggage claim and customs, everybody wants to exchange money. You might get a great rate but also might end up in trouble. Strongly not recommended.

Simon Bolivar International Airport

If you think this is a great airport you have something else coming. It is poorly organized and the service is of poor grade. What else can you expect from the government that is teaching its residents that Cuban socialism is a step in the right direction.


Daniel Ferrer, October 15, 2008 at 1:34 am

I disagree with certain comments made, since there is actually one hallway that connects the international with the domestic terminal, so you do not have to walk with "rain nor humid weather". The International terminal is not only modern, but very good looking. After you have passed through immigration, there are a lot of duty-free shops, and you have an almost complete view of the runway. The jetways are transparent blue/green, which gives a different and more welcoming sensation that those where you cannot see outside. When you are arriving, the immigration area is very illuminated, and you have two or three glass tables where you can fill in your immigration forms (if you hadn’t previously done this). The baggage claim is also very nice, despite the fact (I agree with you) that the luggage takes a lot of time to come out. The public area for international arrivals is awesome, with one very big LCD panel with flight information, and several other plasma screens. Once more, I make emphasis on the fact that it is very illuminated.

Avoid This Airport

Jonathan Redwoods, August 13, 2008 at 11:59 pm

I’ve visited Venezuela many times and although the airport was remodeled it is still one big headache. It is difficult to even begin! Complications when arriving: the lines for immigration can be long. However, since baggage takes so long to be delivered it’s not that big of a hassle. Every passenger is screened for customs and I’ve seen how passengers are harassed. As soon as you exit you are hounded by people trying to offer you taxis or money exchange. Venezuela has the highest crime record of the Americas so obviously if you don’t have a trusted driver pick you up you’re gambling with your life. It’s the only airport in the world where only approved taxis can stop to pick up passengers. If someone wants to pick you up you are forced to walk a great distance. If you are connecting you have to walk in the humid heat (and possibly rain) to the domestic airport where service is even worse. Complications when trying to leave: just to get to a check in counter you have to get through military who treat you like a criminal. Because of exchange controls many taxes have to be paid on-site and cannot be included in the tickets. There is a military security (I think they check for drugs) and THEN there is airport security. Of course, it is rare that they have more than two points open at a time and the lines can get long. Immigration can be very slow – again, usually understaffed despite the huge remodeled space. I have to admit that since they remodeled the airport it’s a lot better than before… but still, the organization, lines, delays, lack of information and general disorder is still there. By the way, there is a nice Eurobuilding hotel nearby.

Caracas Rules

Juan Pereira, July 30, 2006 at 10:05 pm

The airport of Caracas Simon Bolivar is the most beautiful airport in Latin America… with the view to the Caribbean Sea and great service!!! Recently the Caracas Airport has been in remodelation and now you have to come to Venezuela. Discover the colours of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela!!!


Richard Martens, May 5, 2006 at 3:40 pm

I have not found any hotels nearby (which I needed, because my connecting flight was only the next day), however taxis are cheap. If you have a connecting local flight, be aware that there are two terminals. The national terminal is within walking distance from the international one. Walk towards the right when leaving customs. In front of the check-in counters you’ll find the last exit, now continue to your right. There are some shops when you have passed customs. They try to imitate something like Schiphol or Heathrow, but don’t think to much of it.
