Venezuela can be found in South America. Here you’ll find the amazing and impressive Angel Falls. This waterfall is a cascading column of water pouring from a table mountaintop before crashing into a deep pool over 3000ft below. It was named after Jimmie Angel, a US aviator who was the first to fly over it. Its indigenous name is Kerepakupai Vená, meaning ‘Waterfall of the Deepest Place.’ Nevertheless, here you can go boating and trekking to enjoy this world’s highest falls to the maximum!
You can climb or hike the Venezuela’s majestic Andean peaks or have a close encounter with the anacondas, piranhas and capybaras of its primordial wetlands.
On the other side of the coin, Venezuela lays claim on the longest stretch of Caribbean coastline than any other country. Naturally they are white sand beaches and have idyllic offshore islands to admire. You can sail to Los Roques which is a national park made up of over 350 islands and cays and together they make the Caribbean’s largest marine park. Like any stretch of the Caribbean, there’s awesome snorkelling, scuba diving, wind surfing and kite surfing to embrace wholeheartedly.
But if you want something a little less action packed, there is the buzzing capital of Caracas for the culturally inclined. This bustling place has charming colonial architecture standing side by side with modern designs. In the daytime it is like eternal summer, but after dark adventure beckons in the Salsa clubs.
Culturally, it’s worth noting it is rude to point in Venezuela. If you have to point something out, use your whole hand or move your head as a gesture.
As a whole, Venezuela will draw you into with its incredible landscapes, beautiful wildlife and inevitable Caribbean charm. In Venezuela, you can enjoy the thrill of safari in search of pumas and jaguars in Los Llanos, which has vast plains of tropical grassland. Venezuela is definitely worth a visit.
