Exhibition
Department of State Telegram #276159 of 10/23/79
It is becoming increasingly difficult to obtain hotel rooms in
Caracas. Plane reservations also are difficult to arrange, and
delays are frequent.
During the December 1979 OPEC Meeting, hotel rooms will be al-
most impossible to obtain.
Official visitors should notify Embassy Caracas well in advance.
Every effort should be made to adhere to a set schedule. Last
minute changes are extremely difficult to arrange.
Embassy Caracas will appreciate hearing from official visitors,
and will advise the monthly travel conditions and available
facilities.
