Bolivar Exchange Rate

There is an Official Exchange Rate, valid among others for credit card and debit card purchases

But.... when you bring US$ in cash you will find a Parallel Market which can provide much higher exchange rates. The rates cannot be published here as it is now against Venezuelan law to advertise parallel market exchange rates.If you intend to exchange US currency then large denominations of $50 and $100 are highly recommended.

When tipping please use local currency. Do not use small US bills as recipients of these bills will NOT be able to exchange them for local currency.
