We did Angel Falls in Canaima National Park and it was an absolutely breathtaking experience. It is as good as it seems in videos and pictures. I would highly recommend the fly over and the treking experience both.

From Tucupita taxied to Porto Ordaz. Overnight. Excellent accommodation here. From Porto Ordaz took a plane to Canaima National Park. The view over the rivers was breathtaking. Here alone is worth...

It's just a waterfall. No, it's not. It's more than that. And until you see it - via hiking, small plane, or whatever, you will not understand that completely. Life changing. And if you are in a small plane, seeing the tops of the tepuis is just as fascinating. If you have the privilege to get here - you must... More

It is not easy to reach this magnificent site. You have to fly with 6 seat Chesna from Ciudad Bolivar to Canaima and the flight takes a bit over an hour. Canaima is an attraction in itself with several beatiful falls that plunge into what they call "laguna", actualy a river lake. This is where you normally spend the night.... More

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 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!
