Venezuela - Travel Highlights and Travel Tips

Holidays in Venezuela are perfect for explorers and nature lovers. The beautiful country is naturally diverse, featuring both tropical islands and the Andes Mountains. It is also home to the world's highest waterfall, Angel Falls. Venezuela has recently seen violent protests and political demonstrations and it is not currently advised to visit several cities, including Caracas, Barquisimeto, Valencia and Maracay. It is best to check with your government's foreign travel advisory boards for the most up-to-date information. There are areas of Venezuela that continue to be safe for travellers. However, it is always advised to take extra precautions against violence and crime if you are planning a trip to Venezuela. 

Travel Highlights

  • See Angel Falls at Canaima National Park
  • Look for seabirds and aquatic life at the Los Roques archipelago
  • Experience a lightening storm over Catatumbo river
  • Take a cable car to the top of Mérida Mountain
  • Walk the streets of Coro, a UNESCO World Heritage Centre

Travel Tips

  • To stay as safe as possible, always plan ahead. Book your hotels days in advance and always hire a tour operator when exploring the country's beautiful natural landscapes.
  • Venezuelans are known for giving nicknames, at times based on appearance and/or race. They may come across as offensive but are always well intentioned.
  • Due to the difficult circumstances facing Venezuela, certain foods and other products are hard to come by. Save yourself the hassle and bring the essentials with you, including shampoo, toilet paper, and other hygiene products.
  • While the locals of most countries appreciate tourists making an effort to speak their language, this is not the case in Venezuela. Venezuelans generally do not want travellers trying to converse in Spanish unless it is near perfect.
  • Venezuelans are generally very friendly and the young locals are especially keen to chat with travellers. However, be cautious of those who are approaching you only because they are aware you have money. Consider leaving valuables behind, including cameras, so as to not "flaunt" your wealth.

“This was an amazing trip. I think I'd only focused on the Angel Falls section but the rest of the trip was equally as fantastic! Trekking through savannah, climbing Mt Roraima and camping at the top, 6 hour boat trips in sun and phenomenal rainstorms and walking behind waterfalls.”
Roraima Tepuy and the Angel Falls, Solo Traveller Reviewed Tour: The Lost World & Angel Falls
5 - Excellent
“Stunning scenery and excellent itinerary, let down by ancient faulty tour bus and very poor camping equipment. Single tents are tiny, and insufficient when camping in rain. No mess tent or chairs provided, so lots of standing around huddled in the cooking tent.”
Jewels of the Grand Savannah Reviewed Tour: The Lost World & Angel Falls
5 - Excellent
“The trek to the Grand Savannah, with the ascent of the Roraima Tepuy and the Angel Falls trek, and several enjoyable soakings in the many waterfalls/pools in the region make this a multi-highlight trip.............with loads of highs. It needs to be as there are several undoubted lows - an imploding economy; a lot of lengthy travel, some uncomfortable, to get to and from trek start/stop points; an attacking insect world that never lets up! Was it worth it - my gawd, it was!”

“It is all about the scenery. It starts with the Great Plains and the trek up Roraima Tepuy. It ends in Canaima with its lush tropical forests and the most amazing waterfalls.”

“Superb scenery. Amazing trek up Roraima Tepuy; tough wild camping (expect the unexpected!); Oh and WOW- Angel Falls!
Research this trip fully and in particular the country's exchange rates.”

“It was my birthday on the 13th August, it started at 4am with the local guide turning on the generator and the two lights came on to illuminate 14 swinging hammocks; some slept well some didn’t. We’d gone to bed at about 8pm listening to the downpour of rain and the lightening show, we had all hoped for this, to fuel the waterfall. We started with coffee and cake and at 4:30am we were off. We crossed the river and the walk began step by step over black roots, pink stones and orange water pools. The humidity hit several in the group as we gradually climbed, sweet dripping, but the goal was deep in our minds. And then all of a sudden a break in the trees and we got our first view of the Angel Falls. Blue sky and wispy clouds above, and below the falls waters full, crashing down to spray into a perfect rainbow as the early morning light hit the pink and orange cliff face. Perfect, we all stopped for a second and gazed in amazement, silence. We then swapped cameras and took the obligatory pictures before a further walk closer to the base and stripped to swimmers for a careful refreshing swim in the falls lower waterfall pool, strong currents but so refreshing. Then back to the camp for a real breakfast of eggs and corn breads. We then paired up and boarded the long boat for a 4hr return journey down the river and rapids, rain forest trees and Tepuy cliffs surrounding us, the sunny warming us up after every comical soaking as we moved through each rapid. The race was then on to get back to the hotel for a three course lunch of soup, fish and caramel custard. With full stomachs and hearts we separated to swim in the bay, sort bags, walk in the village, read, relax and have a hot shower. We re-joined for dinner and several of us went on to the local club in an open wooden shack with the seven waterfalls as a back drop to end the evening salsa dancing till midnight aided by a couple of rums!! This is one of my most memorable birthdays (or days) ever...”

“After quickly leaving Caracas, we explored a country of amazing waterfalls, vast almost empty savannah and stunning mountains rising with shear faced cliffs almost 1000m tall with often only a single way to reach their summits. These summits were almost flat rocky moonscapes with their own ecosystems having 70percent of plants not fund elsewhere, crystal valleys and glorious views over surrounding countries. And best of all few other tourists.”

“Incredible adventure through the prehistoric landscape of Cainama National Park. Hardly any other tourists around and very lucky with the weather.”
