Caracas has a singly distinct rainy season that begins May and ends around November. June and August are peaks in the rainy season with at least 1.5 feet or 350 mm of rainfall. The
, the tallest waterfall in the world, are at their fullest width and create a spectacular sight within the rainy season.
A coat is practically never necessary, but cautious winter travelers can bring a light sweater with them for comparatively cool mornings. In January, the high temperature is 77 and the low is 63.
The ideal vacation month is different for every traveler. Although tourists rarely flood Caracas, visitors should plan carefully in the winter months. Crowds tend to congregate when the frost bite beckons in the Northern continents. Certainly, visitors who are not keen on rain should avoid the rainy months.
Hotel reservations may be difficult to acquire around Christmas, Carnaval (Ash Wednesday), and the week before Easter Sunday. Catholic Venezuelans and the government recognize these days as holy weeks. The local festivities and parades can be either an attraction or a dissatisfaction for certain travelers.
