This is the best way to appreciate the nature and spirit of Venezuelan landscape. Visit the Andean region with its particular biodiversity, go to the tallest peak of the Cordillera and travel through the Llanos (vast plains) to watch over 300 birds species and its flora and fauna. Discover the native species: anacondas, armadillos, caimans, opossums and peccaries. Go to see the ancient rocks of the Canaima National Park, the millennial tepuis, the valley and the waterfalls. Enjoy the beautiful beaches of Puerto Colombia and the tropical rain forest of Henri Pittier National Park.
