We can recommend the trip to Canaima Park. We had it organized with Connextion Tours. It was very good. However, we also booked to Los Llanos (at El Rancho Grande) and we found out that Connexion Tours was very overpriced. The lady at the ranch told us the normal price they ask for is 3500 BsF, however Connexion Tours asked... More

Seeing Angel Falls (the highest in the world) was an experience of a lifetime. Flying into the canyon to see the falls was a thrill in itself. It wasn't until after my visit that I was informed that supposedly the falls are usually covered in mist or fog, I got lucky as per my picture which I framed and has... More

Go to angel falls! Seriously, it is with every penny. I have been to many attractions as I visited every country in south america and nothing came close. The falls are majestic, there are hardly any tourists and at $200 the trip is a deal! Just be sure to go swimming in the pool at the bottom of the falls... More

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
