Explore Coral Reefs in Los Roques,Venezuela

Imagine hundreds of islands – almost 300 in total – spread across a short distance of the Caribbean sea, each one more pristine than the last.

Most of the islands are uninhabited, and only accessible by boat from Gran Roque, the big island of this expansive archipelago.

All the islands – along with its surrounding shores – were made a National Park in 1972 in order to protect its astounding beauty and prodigious wildlife which include mangrove trees, seagrass beds and coral reefs.

How to See Angel Falls Venezuela in 3 Days

One of Venezuela’s best spots for wildlife viewing, Los Llanos will amaze you with its sprawling savannah and seemingly endless collection of animals: caiman, piranhas, anteaters, anacondas, deer, wildcats and birds all call these plains home.

Except during the rainy season.

From July through November, the plains are nearly submerged by heavy rains. As it begins to dry, grass – along with the rest of the food chain – slowly returns, until finally dozens of herds surround the remaining ponds and creeks.Continue

Get Outdoors in Merida, Venezuela

Merida is an adrenaline junkie’s dream:  you can choose from scores of whitewater rafting tours, canyoneering, paragliding, trekking, rock climbing, mountain biking and much, much more.
