  • Times to Travel: Venezuela's location just above the equator ensures a pleasant climate throughout the year. There is one dry season - December to May, the rest of the year is wet.

    The dry season is favored by those who want to participate in outdoor activities. However, some of the sights, especially the waterfalls, are much more impressive in the wet season.

    There are three peak travel times - Christmas, Carnaval and Holy Week. It is important to book accommodations well in advance during those holiday times.
