I just heard nasty stories from a friend who has an apartment on Isla Margarita...the Policia Federal (or so) takes away apartments from foreigners...in a building of 12 apartments they already took 10...fear the owners with whatever charges and guns...

If you come with a lawyer, they tell the lawyer, if you enter the property, they will shoot him...

Thanks to Chavez the country is going down...already several airlines stopped flying to Isla Margarita. Too bad, awesome country.

I advised him to go public with that story, only this way he will be save if he goes back or wants to secure his property...time to tell the world what is going on down there.

So, pls think twice if investing specially on Isla Margarita is a good idea...not sure about the rest of the country though.

so all we have to do to get rid of lawyers is to bring them to Isla Margarita? as much as I think Chavez is pure garbage, this actually sounds pretty good...get a vacation and rid the planet of a lawyer, all in one step! :cool2:

Unfortunately, you are right. I like to go kitint to el Yaque and Coche. And I have a pending there, since I haven't kited at Los Roques. But last time been there local people were very rude with tourists. And specially kiters. As a matter of fact a guy that organizes wind trips to Venezuela got robbed in Porlamar (Downtown of Isla Margarita).
Thats why me and my bros are now traveling to NE Brasil. Great Winds and locals are very cool.

my thoughts exactly!

what did you expect from locals when you buying off property, bringing your lawyers, raising the local realty prices?

perhaps only thing thats worse then little fat dictators with their stupid uniforms is plutocracy with its power of money and the lawyers making up the rules as they go. rules nobody had voted for!
i mean, for example, who invented copyright? was it on referendum or something?

so if you like your way of living kite at your homespots. and, i guess, if you like overseas spots try not to intrude in the local way of life...

Venezuela,
Cuba,
Zimbawe,
etc.

Best examples on populist economic politics to ruin a country, and create autistic dictators with socialist ideals which ignore completely reality.

They should be dedicated a chapter on the economic books, "what not to do in economics".

Eloico.
