Reasons to Visit
With an enormous Caribbean coastline, Venezuela has a number of beautiful beach options. The archipelago of Los Roques is simply stunning with picture perfect white sand beaches and simple posada accommodation. The Paria Peninsula in the northeast is a little more off the beaten track, and has long stretches of yellow sand beach with a palm tree, banana and cacoa plantation backdrop.
Spanning Venezuela, Brazil and Guyana, Mount Roraima is one of the largest table top mountains (Tepui) in this expansive landscape, which was said to be the inspiration behind Conan Doyle’s 'The Lost World'. Possible to climb via an 8 day trek, it is a draw for adventurous trekkers from across the globe to experience the unique eco-system on top of the mountain.
The world's highest single drop waterfall, the Angel Falls is located in the Canaima National Park in the southeast of the country. However the park is home to a plethora of other stunning waterfalls, not least to mention the beautiful Canaima Lagoon which has seven enormous falls tumbling into it.
The vast Los Llanos region is home to working cattle farms called hatos. These private estates have been protected for years allowing wildlife to blossom within the grounds, which can measure up to 60,000 hectares in size. An enormous variety of birdlife, caimans, crocodiles, capybaras, anteaters and even larger cats and anacondas are commonly seen during a stay in these remote wildernesses.
