Argentine tourists check their equipment before entering the water during a snorkeling class, in the archipelago of Los Roques May 29, 2015. Fears of being kidnapped or not finding toilet-paper are not much of an incentive for a holiday in Venezuela. Yet hardy travelers undeterred by the tales - real and exaggerated - of crime and shortages are finding the South American nation an absurdly cheap destination. That is thanks to exchange controls skewing the economy in favor of anyone with foreign cash, meaning you can hire a boat to a Caribbean island for $15 a day, or trek through Andean mountains or Amazon jungle for a week, with porters, at $125.

People wait in line as they buy toilet paper in a super market in Caracas May 17, 2013. Supplies of food and other basic products have been patchy in recent months, with long queues forming at supermarkets and rushes occurring when there is news of a new stock arrival. The situation has spawned jokes among Venezuelans, particularly over the lack of toilet paper. The government announced this week it was importing 50 million rolls to compensate for "over-demand due to nervous buying". REUTERS/Jorge Silva (VENEZUELA - Tags: POLITICS BUSINESS SOCIETY)

A general view of the archipelago of Los Roques
A general view of the archipelago of Los Roques May 29, 2015. Fears of being kidnapped or not finding toilet-paper are not much of an incentive for a holiday in Venezuela. Yet hardy travelers undeterred by the tales - real and exaggerated - of crime and shortages are finding the South American nation an absurdly cheap destination. That is thanks to exchange controls skewing the economy in favor of anyone with foreign cash, meaning you can hire a boat to a Caribbean island for $15 a day, or trek through Andean mountains or Amazon jungle for a week, with porters, at $125.

People line up to buy toilet paper and baby diapers at a supermarket in downtown Caracas
People line up to buy toilet paper and baby diapers at a supermarket in downtown Caracas January 19, 2015. There's a booming new profession in Venezuela: standing in line. The job usually involves starting before dawn, enduring long hours under the Caribbean sun, dodging or bribing police, and then selling a coveted spot at the front of huge shopping lines. As Venezuela's ailing economy spawns unprecedented shortages of basic goods, panic-buying and a rush to snap up subsidized food, demand is high and the pay is reasonable.

Venezuela's Vice President of Security and Food Sovereignty Carlos Osorio attends a ceremony with President Nicolas Maduro at Miraflores Palace in Caracas January 17, 2015. The socialist government of Venezuela launched during the weekend a 30-second spot on state television which invokes Venezuelans to curb nervous "shopping", accusing them of inciting shortages of basic goods in the country. Since early this year, thousands of Venezuelans have crowded outside supermarkets in long queues in search of scarce products such as toilet paper and milk. Picture taken January 17, 2015.
