Angel Falls, Venezuela

Things to do in Venezuela

Little-visited but greatly varied, Venezuela offers plenty of options when it comes to things to see and do. The country's undoubted highlight is Angel Falls, which, at 979 metres high, is the world’s highest waterfall. Take a motorised canoe to the base of the falls before trekking to Laime's lookout to see the water cascade spectacularly in front of you. Other things to do include visiting Merida, a lively Andean town with a large university population and captivating colonial buildings, or Hato el Cedral, a wildlife lodge in Llanos where the wildlife is prolific and you can expect to see countless species, including pumas, armadillos and flamingos.
