Venezuela

Venezuela, a beautiful country fighting for its existence

Sadly, Venezuela is still (2019)  mildly put not the safest of countries to travel to or in, due to high levels of crime and instability. And that´s a shame, for it has much to offer, from some of the world´s highest waterfalls to spectacular coastlines along the Caribbean. The economic crisis has also hit this country hard resulting in massive inflation. Venezuela, Los Paramos, Merida
But here is what Lonely Planet has to say about it: “Spectacular Venezuela, home to some of South America’s most incredible landscapes, rightly has a terrible image problem at the moment. Hyperinflation has led to a dramatic drop in living standards and issues with the supply of basic goods, while personal safety, particularly in Caracas, is worse than anywhere else on the continent. And yet, visiting Venezuela is both possible and remarkably cheap, with dollars instantly making even backpackers feel wealthy. Safety is a serious concern, of course, but sensibly managed it should be no deterrent to a trip.”Angel Falls, Venezuela

Angel Falls in Venezuela is the highest Water Fall in the world

The rewards if you do go at the right time are frankly immense. Few countries in the world have this degree of natural beauty: Andean peaks, Caribbean coastline, idyllic islands, grasslands teeming with wildlife, the steamy Orinoco Delta and the world’s highest waterfall, Angel Falls. This is true trip-of-a-lifetime stuff, and right now you’ll have it pretty much all to yourself.”
