Los Roques, Venezuela

When is the best time to visit Venezuela?

Venezuela's climate is tropical, with wet and dry seasons rather than hot and cold and average temperatures affected largely by altitude. The wet season runs between May and October, when sunny days give way to afternoon downpours. This is the best time to visit the Angel Falls as water levels are at their highest. The Caribbean coast tends to miss much of the inland rainfall and travel is possible across the country at any time of year.

I love May in Venezuela as there's enough water at Angel Falls, prolific wildlife in Los Llanos and Los Roques is pleasant too.
