Venezuela is world renowned for its glamorous beauty pageants and passion for baseball but remains largely undiscovered by tourism.
Sandwiched between Colombia and Guyana, Venezuela encompasses an astounding diversity of landscapes that are relatively easy to explore. A holiday to Venezuela could entail a ride on the world’s highest cable car into the achingly beautiful Andes, or for the more adventurous, a paddle by dugout canoe into the steamy depths of the Amazon Rainforest.
Accompany llaneros (cowboys) on horseback into the low lying grassy plains of Los Llanos and spot an incredible scope of wildlife from giant anaconda to capybaras and caiman. Fly over the worlds highest waterfall; the mighty Angel Falls, and be gripped by its dizzying plummet over the edge of Auyantepui in Parque Nacional Canaima (Canaima National Park). Moreover, trek across the Gran Sabana and grasp the sheer scale of ancient tepuy’s that dominate these vast plains, among them the lofty Mount Roraima.
Venezuela also encompasses a seemingly endless stretch of Caribbean coastline dotted by numerous offshore islands including the elliptic archipelago of Los Roques National Park, a haven for divers and snorkelers alike.
Holiday in Venezuela and discover a country of vivid contrasts whose beauty has long-enticed explorers and authors.
