Trash everywhere, alternating droughts/flooding... the place is a desert. You need to bring cash and exchange on the black market otherwise ATMs will rape you (you'll get about 20% of the true value at the "official" rate). The food is terrible, it's expensive to go out. The water is green because it's located just outside the mouth of the Orinoco. Bribes are required to leave the country legally.
The only advantage is buying gas... we purchased 55 gallons for $2.50 (no exaggeration).
