I am venezuelan and it makes me sad to post this, ive been living in Margarita island for 6 years now, because living in caracas became too dangerous, I am a lawyer, I am 35 years old, and sailboat owner too, and i have to post this because im sick and tired of seeing tourist from all over the word being mugged and kidnapped at gunpoint, and bribed by the coast guards as well as by the police, and national guards, ive seen many ships wrecked, seized, vandalized and in the best of cases very deteriorated by coast guards and police intervention, I love my country but I hate to say if its not safe for venezuelans It certainly cannot be safe for tourist so if you should really have to come take all the precautions you can and i mean all, because sometimes the same pirates are coast guards and police, again im sorry to post this but if i dont id feel guilty if i ever get to read or see something like what started all the postings
