Venezuela, on South America's Caribbean coast is home to scenery on an epic scale. In the north are the white sand beaches of Los Roques, colonial Andean towns and the wildlife-rich Llanos, while the south is home to the world-famous Angel Falls, mysterious flat-topped tepuis that loom over the savannahs, and undisturbed rainforests where indigenous tribes still practice ancient ways of life.
Venezuela is a country of striking natural beauty and spectacular sights, starting with the breathtaking Angel Falls, the highest waterfall in the world. Situated on the northern tropical Caribbean coast of South America, Venezuela is full of potential adventures, from the extensive plains of Los Llanos that teem with wildlife, to pristine white sand beaches on the islands of Los Roques. Here you can enjoy world-class scuba diving, explore the immense Amazon jungle, and experience the majesty of the tabletop mountains of La Gran Sabana. Scott Dunn’s highlights for Venezuela:
