I visited as part of a group of 19 in May 2014. We booked in advance using Osprey Expeditions, who are not based in Cuidad Bolivar, where trips fly from, or Canaima, where they fly too. We all paid an extra $45 USD for a small scenic flight over the falls, that we didn't get, which was hugely disappointing to... More

We visited Angel falls in the dry season, meaning there was not so much water going over the falls. it also means there is not so much water in the river to get the boat there, and we almost did not make it. If you travel in May (Dry season) triple check if they are running the boats all way... More

We didn't go in the rainy season so the falls weren't as voluminous as they could've been but fantastic plane ride past the falls which were still spectacular!

We went in the dry season so it takes longer to get there as the river is low. You have to walk part of the way so the boats can be pulled upstream over the rocks. We had to leave at 4:30 am to make the journey in one day. Due to airline issues our flight had been cancelled going... More

I stayed at Jungle Rudy's with my family and visited Angel Falls. The trip by homemade canoe was superb. We topped off at 2 other falls on route which really made the trip special. We took the overnight option which was a very basic but enjoyable camp across the river from the falls. Dinner was excellent and all of the... 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
