Venezuela is a country of staggering variety and remains a land that is greatly undervisited by international travelers.
Those seeking adventure will find hiking, snorkeling, scuba diving, kitesurfing, windsurfing, paragliding and more. Even better, most of these attractions lie within a one-day bus trip or a short flight from each other. Those interested in culture can revel in the pulsating salsa clubs of the nation’s capital, Caracas, explore various regional festivals, look for arts and crafts in the bucolic towns of the interior, or check out some of the world’s best up-and-coming baseball players hit a few innings in a local stadium!
On this tour we leave the shiny oil-boom city of Caracas quickly to explore the Gran Sabana, with its wide plains, forests, rivers, sandstone mountains and spectacular waterfalls, including Angel Falls, the World’s highest. We then continue to Los Roques – as beautiful a coral island archipelago as anywhere in the Caribbean, but virtually uninhabited, with no cruise ships or large resorts.
Venezuela and Colombia are the two northernmost countries of South America, and also the least visited. For the time-limited traveler, we’ve distilled the most essential sights: the other-worldly landscape of Canaima National Park, the cobblestone streets of Cartagena, and the pristine Caribbean coastline.
