    airports will usually have places to exchange, or you can do it when you get there

    do it when you land at the airport...and then again when you leave...and check the exchange rates before you go. I've always done that when in Japan, and never had a problem. And also ATM's will just give you their local currency and deduct it from your account automatically. Prolly better to use the ATM's, since carrieing a large amount of cash or checks is a bad idea. And to also save yourself some trouble, make sure the better half has a card as well, just incase you get into any trouble.... ;)

    Venezuela is VERY good about currency exchanges. If your place has a consierge, trust him.

    you'll ge tthe best exchange rates with a credit card or a bank directly. While most major airports feature a currency exchange desk, you are likely to get a better rate directly from an ATM machine affliated with a major bank.
