We travelled here in 1991. In order to see the true beauty of these areas you have to travel when it is not the dry season. We were there in April 1991 and booked the plane trip into Canaima National Park. Very disappointing as we were able to sit on the dry waterfalls and there was little water coming over... More

Take the trip down the river and spend the night sleeping in a hammock. Walk through the jungle until the falls suddenly appear. An unbelievable sight/experience. Swimming in the pool at the foot of the falls, lying back and looking up at the falls cascading down into the pool is one of the most wonderful experiences of my life!

Our first glimpse of the rugged, eerie, flat-topped mountains, draped in rain-forest green with a circle of clouds around them, is awe-inspiring, considering we were up high in a plane looking down. Simply amazing.... and what an entree to start an adventure. This is definitely Sir Arthur Conan Doyle lost-world territory, shrouded in mystery and exquisite beauty. There are no... More

This trip is a must do, if you go to Canaima. Just flying around on a plane will not do it. You have to take the trip up on a "curiara" (local wooden canoe) and enjoy the spectacular views, the river views and spend the night on a hammock

Angel falls Backpacker and kamadac booked the same tour in angel falls, so there is no difference in quality there. The tepuis are spectacular, rising out of the jungle rather than the savannah like in roraima, and it's amazing to boat through the jungle to the falls. There are tons of smaller waterfalls along the way and you can see... More

The whole is excursion is pretty amazing, but after making the hike up to see the falls up close, the final reward of your efforts is nothing short of majestic. It's the tallest waterfall in the world.. what are you waiting for??

We actually went two days in a row. The first day we took an outboard powered canoe ride for about three hours upstream passing through many rapids most of which seemed impassable and in fact we did scrape bottom on several but the canoe is carved from a solid tree trunk so very sturdy. Don't be put off by this... More

The water here is the color of tea and feels so soft on your skin and hair. You can sit under waterfalls or just float on the waves. Priceless!
