Venezuela is a multifaceted country, characterized by a variegated territory that stretches from the Caribbean coast, with its innumerable islands, to the Venezuelan Andes, from the Amazon jungle to the vast flat expanses rich in cattle. Between one panorama and the other, the three large cities stand out: Caracas, Maracaibo and Ciudad Bolivar. A tour of the protected national parks is the best way to admire the Venezuelan natural environment in all its beauty, full of forests, waterfalls and wild beaches with tropical colors. El Santo Angel, the highest waterfall in the world, is one of the most popular destinations for tourists traveling to Venezuela.
The best known Venezuelan islands, off the Caribbean coast, are the islands of Los Roques, a coral archipelago used as a national park since 1972. The island where you can stay is Gran Roque, from where you can go on day trips. A true paradise on earth made of white beaches and crystalline waters rich in corals. Los Roques is perhaps the most popular destination for those who go to Venezuela, but the other nearby islands, such as Isla Margarita and Tortuga, the turtle island, are no less popular.
