TRAVELLING TO Venezuela

NOTE We currently do not recommend travel to Venezuela due to political instability. 

Why visit? Situated in the tropical north of South America, with its pristine coastline lined with miles of postcard-perfect beaches, an abundance of exotic wildlife and some of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world, Venezuela boasts a natural diversity not many countries in this world can compete with.
 
Usually, Australians start their Venezuela tour in Caracas, the country’s capital, located in Venezuela’s northern mountain valley. From there, a trip to Canaima National Park is a highlight no adventurous traveller should miss due to its natural beauty and being home to the spectacular UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Angel Falls, the highest waterfalls in the world. 
 
To see some of Venezuela’s gleaming white beaches and crystal clear waters, head to las Roques, an archipelago off the mainland that impresses with beautiful islands, coral reefs, mangroves and seagrass beds and is an ideal place for water sports.
 
A biodiversity rivalling the Amazon can be found at the Orinoco delta, in the north of Venezuela, where the great Orinoco River runs through the country and spills out into the Atlantic Ocean. This area is characterised by dense jungle, large areas of wetlands and mangroves home to some of the country’s mammals such as Howler monkeys, Tapirs, Jaguars and pink dolphins to name only a few.
 
How to get there? Being in the north west of South America, it is almost as easy to get to Venezuela from Los Angeles as it is from Santiago, Chile. Which route you take is probably more likely to be determined by what you’d like to do en route (Patagonia or Peru, go via Santiago. Mexico or the US, go via LA). QANTAS actually offer a split fare into (or out of) LA, returning via Santiago – for those who want to do a loop.
