The Andes offer an amazing backdrop to some vibrant colorful cities, and the Orinoco delights are full of wildlife. There is much to explore throughout this country. Caracas, the capital and largest city in the country, offers its own adventure type, with a number of cultural sites and surrounding attractions.

Angel Falls

Situated in the heart of the country, the peaks of the mountains are full of giant trees and surrounding landscapes, the magnificent Angel Falls. Located at an altitude of 979 meters, it is the highest waterfall in the world and one of the most prominent areas of South America. This stunning location at Canaima National Park is very remote and difficult to reach, but flights are easily arranged by falls. The best time to see the fall is during the rainy season, between May and November, when the water is plentiful and do not disappear falling into the spray before reaching the bottom as you do in the dry season. During the dry season, the fall may be more than a few and visitors may want to check in advance to see if there is enough water to make the trip worthwhile.

Los Roques Archipelago (ArchipiƩlago Los Roques)

Sunny beaches, turquoise waters, coral reefs and modest development, with no high-rise hotels, attract travelers to this beautiful series of islands 160 kilometers north of Venezuela's central coast. The archipelago is Los Roques National Park, but most people refer to the area simply as Los Roques. Here people come to escape from busy streets, huge resorts, and flocks of tourists. The small village of Gran Roque, on the beach of the island of the same name, is the main settlement, with bungalows painted in typical bright colors throughout Venezuela. The buildings stretch along the seashore, which seems to last forever. One of the highlights of many visitors is the small island of Cayo de Agua. This beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in Venezuela, with its shallow turquoise water, perfect for swimming and diving.

Isla de Margarita (Margarita Island)

The island of Margherita is one of the most developed beach destinations in Venezuela. Located about 40 km north of the mainland, it is one of Venezuela's major tourist destinations for sun seekers. The island's main attractions are the beautiful soft sandy beaches, which are popular among both foreigners and Venezuelans. Many charter flights fly directly to Margarita Island from a variety of international destinations, but it is also possible to take the ferry from Puerto La Cruz Island to the mainland.

Morrocoy National Park

Morrocoy National Park is located along the coast about two hours drive west of Caracas, famous for its white sand beaches and coral reefs, which extend along the mainland and encircle the islands and caesos. Diving is a major activity for those looking for more than just spending a day on the beach. The park is also home to a large number of birds, from sprites and parrots to flamingos and magpies. Some of the most popular islands are Cayo Sombrero, Cayo Poracho, Cayo Sal, and Cayo Perazza, to name a few.

Canaima National Park and the Gran Sabana

The National Park of Canaima covers three million hectares and is listed on the UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is usually connected to the Angel Falls and the surrounding area of Canaima, but this is actually only a small area of the park, which is vastly diverse. The park also has the high Gran Sabana Plateau, and includes more than 100 Tibio (mountain tops), which rises more than 1,000 meters above the savannah. The journey through Gran Sabana and Canaima National Park is a unique experience and does not necessarily have to be accompanied by a trip to Angel Falls, especially during the dry season.
