Maracaibo city is the hottest city in Venezuela and so is its airport 40 degrees or more it would appear that the air conditioner system is not working at all. This airport itself and its staff is another story compared to Caracas Int'l. I spent 4 hours in Maracaibo's airport and I found nothing but rude and careless staff all around the airport. My flight to Miami was delayed apparently for some problems with the jet bridges that at least I did not have the chance to see or walk through to get to the airplane. The prices are extremely high in restaurants and stores. I just can't understand why Maracaibo being such an important economic centre in Venezuela since it is the heartland of the oil has such a dull and unfriendly airport.
