Venezuela Travel Guide

Travel to Venezuela, where the Andes meet the Caribbean. Capital of Venezuela's Andes is Mérida, the region's base for moutaineering and trekking. Far below at the heart of Venezuela are the llanos (plains), an immense area of flat savannah rich in wildlife. With the longest coastline in the Caribbean at over 2500 km, Venezuela has some of the region's best diving in three marine national parks, including Islas Los Roques. At the other end of the country, the Amazon is home to humid rainforest and 20 different ethnic groups. Use our online Venezuela travel guide to read more on what the country has to offer.
