Top Destinations in Venezuela

Venezuela, a country located on the Northern End of South America, is a paradise of a nation. It is home to natural habitats and wildlife. This tropical nation boasts of beautiful beaches and scenery worth traveling to. If you want to know more about what are the top destinations in the country you can drive to, here are the top destinations in Venezuela.

Angel Falls

Angel Falls is one of the must-see destinations in Venezuela. It’s been featured in several movies and called “Paradise Falls.” Angel Falls is the world’s longest waterfall, with a nearly-kilometer drop from the summit called “Devil’s Mountain.” When visiting the falls, you can trek to an overlook that gives you one of the best-uninterrupted views of Angel Falls.

Angel Falls is located inside Canaima National Park, the second-largest national park in Venezuela. After visiting Angel Falls, you can go bird watching, animal spotting, and even go on a boat tour. The boat tour will let you see places that are only accessible via water transportation and even let you get close to the other waterfalls inside the national park. Lastly, don’t forget to drop by Laguna de Canaima when you leave, so you can see the red and pink hues of the waters of this picturesque lagoon.

This 32,090-acre park is also home to 266 species of birds that you can try to spot while relaxing.

Coro was once the capital of Venezuela before it was changed to Caracas. Here, you can see bright and beautiful Spanish architecture that is so well-preserved, you might think you are walking back in time.

Most Important Rules of Driving in Venezuela

While having a wonderful time in Venezuela, you should be careful to follow the country's rules. This will help your trip to be safe and keep you out of trouble, making sure you avoid any unnecessary issues with local authorities. Being respectful and cooperative with local law enforcement is key. Let's have a look at the most important driving rules in Venezuela.

Drunk driving is against the law

Venezuelan authorities tend to conduct random inspections throughout the country, so be sure you do not drink and drive. Venezuela imposes a 0.08% blood alcohol limit for all drivers, including tourists. The authorities will be conducting breath-analyzer tests on the drivers, and if you are caught, you will be fined. Depending on the severity of your violation, you might also be penalized, and they will revoke your driver’s license and impound your car/

Traveling with Children

If you are traveling with children, you need to make sure they are seated in proper child seats. They are not allowed to sit on the passenger seat unless they are 13 years old or older. Venezuela has a mandated child seat-type depending on the age and size of your child. If your child is 15 months old to 3 years old, he or she is required to sit on a rear-facing child seat. If the child is 4 or 5 years old, he or she needs to use forward-facing seats.

For older children that are aged between 6 and 11 years old and weigh about 25 kgs, they need to use a booster seat. Lastly, children who are 12 years old need to be seated in the rear and on a booster cushion if they weigh about 35 kgs. All those found disobeying this law will be fined a hefty amount of $66,000 to $132,000.

Fuel Laws

Venezuela’s fuel is currently being subsidized and limited by the government; because of this, there might be times when fuel is not readily available. Before you start driving around the country, it is best to have your car topped-up. It is also best to buy gas for your car outside the city centers like Caracas. This is because lines may tend to get long, and since the gas is limited, you might end up waiting for a long time before you can refill your tank. Try to ask your car rental company for their fuel plans or packages to make your trip more hassle-free.
