Venezuela HOLIDAYS

Venezuela is the South American country where the great Andean range meets the Caribbean. With the longest Caribbean coastline in the Americas, you will find pristine white sandy beaches. The archipelago of Los Roques boasts some of the best snorkelling in the country and a fantastic place to relax and unwind after the adventures of the interior.

OUR FAVOURITE THINGS TO DO IN Venezuela

BEACHES

The Los Roques archipelago stretches 35 km from east to west and 25 km north to south and the entire archipelago is a national park, a paradise for snorkelling, scuba diving, game fishing or just relaxing on one of the many white sandy beaches

COLONIAL TOWNS

Merida, in the heart of the Andean range is situated on a giant plateau, surrounded by snow capped peaks. It has a relaxed atmosphere with colonial architecture and neatly cobbled streets; the national park of the Sierra Nevada surrounds the city

WATERFALLS

The highlight in Venezuela is of course, the Angel Falls, a towering spine of water that drops 979 metres into the Devil’s Canyon. To see the falls you must either take a light aircraft or board an Indian canoe that takes you into the heart of the Devil’s Canyon.

WILDLIFE

The Llanos is a savannah wetland at the base of the Andes. Life here revolves around the rains which cause the flats to flood from May to November. The flooded savannah eventually subsides making it one of the top destinations for ornithologists.

JUNGLE

The Orinoco River is a rarely visited paradise, flowing into the Atlantic in the form of endless creeks and channels. The entire delta is protected by the Venezuelan government and is best explored by motorised canoe, passing by small communities of subsistence farmers scattered along the riverbanks.

REMOTE HATO

A Hato is an estancia in Venezuela and one of the best places to experience them is in the Llano. Here Activities are more varied with walking, boat rides in narrow creeks horse riding and driving safaris. The ranches themselves are stunning and often surrounded by jagged mountains peaks

All of our transportation guides were on time, friendly, and could answer any questions we had, provided clean vehicles, and our local guides were always very knowledgeable and willing to go above and beyond! I highly recommend Latin Odyssey!!

November to April is Venezuela’s summer and a time when little rain falls. This does mean though that in the south of the country, around Canaima and the Angel Falls you cannot visited the falls as the rivers are too low and hence the falls are inaccessible

travel stories from Venezuela

Michael Palin’s Brazil

Take a literary journey

an overview of Venezuela

Merida, the capital of the Venezuelan Andes has the longest and highest cable car ride in the world, reaching the foot of Pico Bolivar 4776m. The region is situated in the Sierra Nevada’s mountains which offers superb walking.

The Andean mountain range drops away into the flat lands known as the Llanos, a grassland with slow running rivers which flood during the rainy season (May – Nov). Teeming with wildlife, it is a nature lover’s paradise, giving you the opportunity to view some of Venezuela’s 1300 species of bird along with anacondas, river dolphins, caiman and capybaras.

Canaima national park, the 2nd largest in Venezuela with 30,000 sq km is the home of the impressive Angel falls, the highest in the world. At 979metres – 16 times higher than Niagara it is synonymous with Venezuela. Situated within an impenetrable jungle it can only be seen by air or by an adventurous boat ride.

The Gran Sabana situated in the far southeastern corner is a wild silent place well off the beaten track. Flat tabletop mountains and hidden waterfalls made this one of the candidates for Arthur Doyle’s ‘lost world’.

The Orinoco and the Amazonas contain protected rainforest, which require a permit from the authorities to visit. This is a unique opportunity to encounter remote tribal Indians and a chance to understand their culture and way of life.
