Spectacular Venezuela, home to some of South America’s most incredible landscapes, rightly has a terrible image problem at the moment.
The rewards if you do go are frankly immense. Few countries in the world have this degree of natural beauty: Andean peaks, Caribbean coastline, idyllic islands, grasslands teeming with wildlife, the steamy Orinoco Delta and the world’s highest waterfall, Angel Falls. This is true trip-of-a-lifetime stuff, and right now you’ll have it pretty much all to yourself.
Interesting facts about Venezuela:
- Venezuela’s name comes from the Italian word “Veneziola” that literally means “piccola Venezia” (little Venice).
- In Venezuela summer is every day of the year because the country only has two weather seasons: the hot and dry season and the hot and wet season.
