This is hands-down an amazingly beautiful place that should be on every traveler's list. While Angel Falls was the main attraction I was excited to see, I also fell in love with the Canaima Lagoon. There are several other bustling waterfalls, one of which you...More

In April is the end of the dry season so there was the risk of the water levels being low, However we heard most of the time you just carry your boat. They cancelled our trek the night before but the next day, people returning...More

Quite an adventure to get to the falls, from Canaima a four hour boat ride, then an hours walk, but it is more than worth it. The view point is a kilometre or more away, but you can go further to swim at the foot...More

Yes! And Yes! Visit the Angel falls is better than Orlando, New York or Eiffel Tower. Angel falls is a magic place, unique, it is the tallest waterfall in the word, and it is really big. Get in Canaima is expensive, but it worth it,...More

I used hike-Venezuela.com for this trip combined with a Roraima trek, which I did back to back although you can book both trips separately. Superbly organised with all flights, hotel pickups and an excellent itinerary for the trip. Highly recommended.

Hi Kevin, I contacted Waku Lodge directly by email. They work directly with Canaima Tour which is the same company I think. They do everything for you, you only need to get to Caracas then a national flight to Puerto... More
Hello, I can only get a transit visa, not sure 72 hours or 3 days, a flight will arrive at BAL Barcelona at 1pm and leave at 5pm, can anybody suggest is there anyway I can join a tour to Angel Falls? Won't have time for standard 3 days 2 nights, has to go by helicopter I guess. Where shall I fly to from BAL to join the tour, which company is recommended, and how much? Don't need to land at the top but a landing at the bottom of the falls will be best. Is the fly over a different kind of tour? I'm only 1 person, do they put me with other people? Thank you :)

The standard is 4 days as you go up by boat once arrived in Canaima National park. The helicopter cannot land bottom or top of falls. Going by boat is not possible all the time as the height of the water determines what time... More
