I have to start by saying that i am a big man, over 20st, with much less than average fitness levels, so no excuses, Angel Falls is for everyone and should be at the top of all bucket lists. Yes its not easy to get there...a flight from Caracas to Puerto Ordaz, a 2nd flight to Canaima National Park, a... More

Reaching the place is not easy. But all the work pays off when you see this amazing falls, a one of a kind place you will remember for the rest of your life. First, you catch a small plane from Ciudad Bolívar. You will fly to Canaima and spend a night there. On the next day, you will catch a... More

It takes several forms of transportation to get here, but the lack of roads to Canaima & Salto Angel is part of the magic of the trip. The flight over the lush forest, the boat ride up the Coca-Cola coloured river, and the light hiking up to the base of the Falls all add to the amazing experience. It's wonderful... More

(I'm posting this same review under Roraima, since it covers both Roraima and Angels Falls.) Our family of four used Hike Venezuela (hike-venezuela.com) to make all the arrangements for a 12-day trip that included a six-day Roraima trek, a three-day Angel Falls excursion, and many logistics to get us from place to place. We began arranging the trip by email... More

We arrived to Canaima by a small airplane from Ciudad Bolivar..The flight was amazing and the view unforgettable.We walk all over Canaima sleeping in 3 different places.We pass 3 days in a fantastic nature.Salto Angel was the best fall.

We took a bus to Ciudad Bolivar, a plane to Canaima, a canoe to the bottom of the base, and a 2 hour hike to the top. But once it was one of the more amazing things I've ever seen. If you're in Venezuela, then definitely go - just be prepared for it to not be easy!

I went there exactly one year ago. It is a wonderful experience for people who like adventure, great views and particularly don't care about luxury accomodations. I recomend to find a trustworthy guide and agency, and, if you really want to enjoy this, to have patience with the local and natives will go a long way. Enjoy! Don;t foeget to... More

We are just getting back from Canaima. The National park is one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. It's so untouched and its views are so breathtaking that if you ever doubted there's a god you will be convinced there's a major power somewhere by the time you leave Canaima. The Angel Falls trip is definitely worth doing.... More

Is there a place to stay at the falls or do we need to bring camping gear? Or do we get all that with an organized tour? Any recommendations?
