Moving to Venezuela is a great opportunity to explore this beautiful country! Often overlooked due to its political turmoil, Venezuela is a beautiful country full of breathtaking views and natural wonders. It has the longest stretch of Caribbean coastline in any single nation, Andean peaks, and lush wetlands. Outdoor activities include scuba diving, windsurfing, kitesurfing, paragliding, and much, much, more. If you are moving to or just visiting Venezuela, be sure and check out my three favorite places:
Located in Canaima National Park, Angel Falls is the tallest waterfall in the world at 3,200 feet. It is actually fifteen times taller than Niagara Falls. Hiking around the area you could see pumas, jaguars, porcupines, armadillos, giant anteaters, three toed sloths, capybaras, or tapirs.
La Isla Margarita is known as the “Pearl of the Caribbean” for its beautiful beaches, old castle ruins, ornamental churches, and wetlands. Visit the Lagoon of La Restinga National Park and take a boat ride through the mangroves for a truly awesome experience, or take a relaxing swim and sun bathe at one of the numerous beaches.
Be sure to check out Pico Espejo, the second highest peak in Venezuela, accessible by the world famous Merida cable car. Reaching 15,600 feet and stretching over 8 miles, it is the highest cable car in the world. It reopened earlier this year after being close for 5 years for maintenance.
