Venezuela is one of South America's most glamorous countries and has something for every traveller with exquisite beaches, breathtaking scenery, jungles with prolific wildlife, spectacular waterfalls and the astounding Llanos.
The vast Llanos lies at the very heart of Venezuela, spiritually and geographically. These flat grass lands cover an area of 300,000 sq. kms between the Andes and the Orinoco Delta, almost a third of the entire country. This is Venezuela's wild west. A mythologised land of hardy Llanero cowboys driving massive herds of cattle across ranches the size of small European countries.
Most famously, Venezuela is home to the highest waterfall in the world - Angel Falls. Its is possibly the biggest icon of Venezuela and a must see site. The water plunges from a height of nearly 1000 metres.
North of the capital of Caracas lies the Venezuelan Coastal Range. Creating a wonderful landscape, this mountain range stretches across most of the northern part of the country. Travel around the country and you will find the beautiful tastes of Venezuela. Influenced by many European countries and a blend of Africa and Native America a unique taste is created. Try a traditional Arepa, a corn bread infused with cheeses, meats, tomatoes or fish.
Venezuela has the 5th largest amount wildlife in the world. With over 8000 species of animals and birds across the country, there is always an opportunity to spot one. Stingrays, jaguars crocodiles, anaconda and armadillos are only a few of the many that live in the country.
One way the people of Venezuela express themselves is through music. With an African and European but mainly Spanish influence, the sound of the country is created and shared with others. Experience it yourself and discover what Venezuela has to offer.
