2 planes each way from Caracas, $500, boat trip and a hike. A night in a hammock and some bbq chicken. All worth it to sit in the pool beneath the falls.

This has been the highlight of my visit to Venezuela. What distinguishes it from other major waterfalls (e.g. Iguazu, Victoria) is the minimal commercialisation. The long river journey and then the hike along a rough trail, and overnight in a basic camp in a hammock all serve to make the experience much more authentic. Well worth the effort to visit.

There is nothing to dislike about visiting the longest falls in the world. You only have to hope that after travelling so far by plane, boat and by foot that you have nice clear weather and get to see the falls in their glory.

Visiting Venezuela has been a great experience. We travelled through Venezuela for two weeks and I am very happy that I decided to go to there. We have enjoyed the country's extremely beautiful nature, its great wildlife and met lots of nice people. The country received negative media coverage recently, but the people are very open, helpful and kind. We... More

Majestic waterfalls ... Worth all the 4 hours couryara boat to get there and the 2 days completely wet bodies. And the swim under it is just great with the red water ...

We did this trip a few years ago from Margarita island, it was worth every penny and has to be put at the top of the list of holiday experiences. Chance of a lifetime flying over the table top mountains and seeing angel falls. We went to margarita just to do this trip, would definitely recommend to do the longer... More

The view, the smell, the surroundings, the people, the experience. There is so much I could say about Salto Angel, that would not have space enough. Perfection would summarize everything. If you have the opportunity, this is one of the things one should do in life. You will feel speechless in front of it. Please do not forget to take... More

Angel falls and Canaima park are stunning. Whilst traveling along the river to the falls I thought 'I need to tell people to quit their jobs and come here'. It is gorgeous. I booked a 3 day 2 night tour via Sapito Tours Agency which are based at Cuidade Bolivar airport. They gave honest information about the different tour providers.... More

From the very moment you meet Paul (and his team/Angel-Eco Tours) you rapidly understand that this trip is going to be different in all senses. In a nutshell: Passion for the Park and its People, eco-intelligence when it comes to details/organization and, last but not least, an epicurean mind combined with a touch of the best British sense of humor....
