Trip Highlights
Looking for a trip to Venezuela? This adventure offers the opportunity to see hundreds of bird species (over 300) and more than 50 mammals in Los Llanos Venezolanos. Travel to the Páramo, a high-altitude region with a neo-tropical ecosystem in the Andean Region of Venezuela. See laguna negra and delight with the drinks and cuisine of the local villages. In Merida, visit the world’s longest and highest cable car that takes you from the Barinitas station (1577 meters) to Mirror Peak (Pico Espejo) at an altitude of 4,765 meters above sea level. Continue to Lake Maracaibo for a bird and butterfly watching expedition and in the evening, if you are lucky, take a night safari and observe the Catatumbo lightning – a mysterious semi-permanent lightning storm that occurs where the Catatumbo River meets Lake Maracaibo. The frequent, powerful flashes of lightning over this relatively small area are considered by some to be the world's largest single generator of tropospheric ozone. End your trip in Los Roques National Park, a hidden paradise, relaxing on a white private sandy beach while reading a book or swimming in the turquoise blue waters.
