Visiting Caracas for a month or so

Hi guys,
there is a chance I need to go to Caracas for work and I would like to heard from you about the current safety situation, I quite understand it’s a very broad questions and the answer depends on many factors.
I have many venezuelan colleagues in Montevideo who tell me I’m crazy if I go there, you’ll get bribed by an officer on migration, you get stolen if they heard your accent, you cannot show your cellphone walking on the street, you’ll get shot, etc etc, etc.
I mean, we don’t live in a safety paradise here in Montevideo, it’s South America and as we all know common sense is always the first safety measure in any place, in any case I would like to heard from you guys tips or any other recommendation about what should and certainly shouldn’t do in Caracas.

Thanks in advance,
