Getting There The Avior and SBA Airlines offer direct flights to Miami but not to any other US or European destinations. European carriers such as Air France, Iberia and Air Europa operate direct flights from mainland Europe. Nearly all international visitors arrive at Caracas' Aeropuerto Internacional Simón Bolívar in Maiquetía, 26km from Caracas. The national carrier is Conviasa.

When to go Venezuela’s proximity to the Equator allows few climatic variations making it a year-round destination. The best time however, is the dry season, which runs from December to April. The wet season runs from May to November and is not all that bad for some sights, including the famous Angel Falls that are certainly more impressive in the wet season.

In Los Llanos, wildlife spotting is much more abundant during the dry season, when the animals congregate at the few watering holes, and hordes of pesky mosquitoes make walking very unpleasant during the wet season. Also Guayana region is more comfortable during this dry season, though Angel Falls tends to be fuller and more spectacular during the wet season.
