Destinations

Turpial Travel’s South America tours take you through the diverse landscapes and cultures of both Venzeula and Chile. Within these two countries, there are many incredible destinations to choose from. While some of our trip packages focus on a single location, others will take you to several places throughout the country you are in. If there’s somewhere in particular you wish to go, the twenty locations below are all stops on at least two of our adventure trips. Patagonia South America is one of our most popular destinations in Chile, while Angel Falls in Canaima National Park is a must-see if you travel to Venezuela. Whether you’re a new explorer or an experienced adrenaline junkie, the outdoor activities you can experience in all of these destinations are unforgettable.

If you choose a trip to Venezuela, the cities and towns you will visit may include Caracas, Choroní, Puerto Colombia, and Mérida. As you explore the great outdoors in Venezuela, you’ll get to see the incredible Amazon River or visit a ranch in the plains of Los Llanos, where hundreds of species of reptiles, birds, and mammals live in their natural habitat. If you love scuba diving, Morrocoy National Park is the perfect destination with 30 different keys where you can view unique marine life. The Maracaibo Lake region is one of the most beautiful and exotic destinations in South America, serving in dramatic contrast to the nearby Andes Mountains.

One of the largest national parks in the world and the second largest in Venezuela, Canaima National Park astonishes visitors with the drama of its spectacular landscapes and biological diversity. Its signature landmarks are the tepuis, unique rock formations that rise up out of the surroundings to create huge ecological islands (the most famous, Roraima, inspired Conan Doyle's novel, The Lost World) punctured by waterfalls, including Angel Falls, the planet’s highest. In 1994, UNESCO declared Canaima National Park a World Heritage Site. The organization calls the park a "unique biogeological entity". It is best to visit Canaima National Park and the famous Angel Falls during the rainy season - from May to November. T ... Read More.

Caracas, Venezuela's capital, has over four centuries of history buried beneath its urban city. It is here where you find an array of cultural activity, world-class museums or eclectic cuisine, from the arepa joints of Sabana Grande to the haute cuisine of hubs like Las Mercedes and Los Palos Grandes. Nightlife is also one of the best in the country!

 

The Caura River is one of the largest and most pristine watersheds in the world. It maybe the world’s largest extension of intact tropical rainforest. It is the second most important tributary along the right margin of the Orinoco River, known as a black water river due to its dark brown color and low nutrient concentration. Easy to confirm during the excursions, while boats go through these waters, and this amazing jungle all around, keeping the wildlife safe, including at least 679 species of mammals, birds, amphibians and reptiles.
 

The Colonia Town of Choroní, founded in 1616, is located 40 minutes away from the city of Maracay. Choroní is known as one of the nicest colonial villages along the Venezuelan coast. A 10-minute drive from Choroní will take you to Puerto Colombia - another picturesque village with the typical colonial houses, church, square and a pleasant sandy beach shaded by huge coconut palms, known as Playa Grande. Framed by the tropical rain forest of the Henri Pittier National Park, the beaches around Puerto Colombia are some of the most stunningly beautiful in the country. From Puerto Colombia you can take a boat to other nearby beaches such as Chuao and Cepe. During weekends and holidays, drummers from the villages Choroni and P ... Read More.

Easter Island - also known as Rapa Nui or Isla de Pascua – is like nowhere else on earth. It is a Polynesian island in the southeastern Pacific Ocean. Isla de Pascua was annexed to Chile in 1888 and it is located at the southeastern most point of the Polynesian Triangle. Its particular location makes it (according to some) “the world’s most remote inhabited island”. According to the Lonely Planet, it is historically intriguing, culturally compelling and scenically magical. What should you see in Easter Island? Its famous moai’s created by the early Rapanui’s which encompass more than 800 huge statues of which 50 are standing and staring at the distant horizons. Take a history lesson at Rano Raraku; hike up Mau ... Read More.
