    Venezuela

    Major Tourist Attractions: Angel Falls, Mochima National Park, National Pantheon of Venezuela, Playa El Agua, Parque Central Complex

    Venezuela is a country with passion and vibrancy that visitors will feel immediately. This Spanish speaking country is a lively blend of relaxed attitudes and a uniquely socialist perspective.

    True to its South American soul, Venezuela is a country with passion and vibrancy that visitors will feel immediately as they enter the country. Whether you are shaking your hips as your dance the night away, walking the white sand beaches of the Caribbean, or exploring the jungles of the Amazon River Basin, the beauty of Venezuela is hard to ignore.

    This Spanish speaking country is a lively blend of relaxed attitudes typical of South America and a uniquely socialist perspective. Ancient Venezuelan’s date back to 13000BC but there is significant Creole and European influence since being discovered by Christopher Columbus in the 15th century. Named “little Venice” or Venezuela by an Italian explorer, visitors still have trouble leaving Lake Maracaibo’s wooden stilts houses with sunset views that are hard to beat.

    From the posh luxury hotels in upscale Caracas, to the humble hammock strung in a beachside cabana, visitors will revel in the diverse accommodation options. Budget-minded travelers will enjoy a bargain in the many posada guest homes.

    With most attractions relatively close, it is easy to take advantage of the country's inexpensive bus network or shared taxi culture called por puestos.

    Here is a list of the adventures to find in Venezuela:

    • Explore Angel Falls, the world’s highest waterfall, by trekking deep into the jungle by boat and foot.
    • Relax on the red-sand beaches or snorkel the waters of Parque Nacional Mochima.
    • Feast on empadas, a pasty snack filed with cheese and hot sauce.
    • Visit the plains of Los Llanos, the best bird watching and wildlife spotting area on the continent.
    • Take a boat ride up the Orinoco Delta, a waterway system home to many indigenous tribes.
    • Shop the markets or malls of cosmopolitan Caracas.
    • Cruise the mangroves of Margarita island by boat.
    • Whirl with the dancing devils in the Festival de los Diablos Danantes.
    • Relax on one of the 22 white sand cays in Parque Nacional Morrocoy.
    • Discover the desert island paradise of the Los Roques, islands populated by boatmen and posado owners.
    • Dance the night away in the student-friendly town of Merida.
    • Climb the peaks of Pico Humbodlt or Pico Boliviar or go canyoning in the wilderness that surrounds Merida.
    • Sleep in a hammock in Cerro Autana, the Amazon area of Guayana.
