Venezuela is a land of stunning variety: Andean peaks, endless Caribbean coastline, grasslands teeming with wildlife and the steamy Amazon. Those seeking adventure will find plenty of outdoor activities, a day’s bus trip of each other. Venezuelans love to have a good time, and their spirit is infectious.
