The trip to Angel Falls for me and my wife was arranged as an all inclusive package from Caracas and back by Cacao Travel. Our journey began on January 9th with a 6:30 am flight from Caracas to Puerto Ordaz and onward to Canaima on a 9:00 am Transmandu flight. On January 10th, we left the boat dock at 11:00... More

Is it a dream land, where every step in the way you are in awe? Yes! But, your chances of making it even more memorable require a bit of planning. The best times to go are September (during the brief lull in the rainy season), or December. Going during the rainy season may leave you with an obstructed view, or... More

First word of warning, don't buy a trip outside the country. Trips are expensive when purchased at the official exchange rate. You can save thousands by purchasing a tour in Caracus. All the tours are identical, same itinerary the only difference is the price. We paid a lot for the three day tour $250 per person, others paid 1/2 that.... More

This was one of my most rewarding trips. Having only read about Angel Falls & Canaima when finally making it to the National Park I was totally blown away. Then the trip by canoe to the base of the falls was the best trip of my life.

You know all the websites and articles about "Places to see before you die"? Well, actually Angel Falls are one of those...It's a lifetime experience, an adventure you ust take alone or in a group/with your partner.

We were nervous about the trip from having read other reviews yet for us, it was a huge and fun adventure...."Romancing the Stone"-like. The two flights are a little scenic and arriving is thrilling. We LOVED Tepuy Lodge, very charming, artistic and comfortable. The trip to Sapo Falls is not to be missed...squeals and giggles all the way. The 4... More

This is probably the most incredible, astonishing, breathtaking place on earth. It is absolutely worth the wait, the time flying and all the associated costs. There are at least two ways to visit the falls. You can take a small plane from Puerto Ordaz that will fly you right into the canyon where the falls are or you can take... More

Loved seeing Angel Falls, well worth the 4 hour boat ride up after an hour flight. We camped overnight in hammocks and had lovely food cooked for us. It has just rained and then cleared, leaving us with a huge view of Angel Falls pouring down water.

We were a group of Americans wanting to experience South America in the most unique way- up on our list were waterfalls, eco anything , nature parks, national parks, space centres, and yes, special...

Amazing experience. This is one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Magnificent 3 days of adventure living among nature. This trip is not for the faint of heart. You need to push yourself beyond limits you may not think is possible. You must be able to hike over rough terrain for up to an hour to 2 hours... More
