Best time to visit Venezuela

The best time to visit Venezuela is dependent on individual traveller preference.

The dry season in Venezuela runs from November to April, and the rainy season is from May to October. While the dry season offers pleasant travelling conditions, waterfalls such as the Angel Falls are most impressive during the wet season and in the dry season may not be accessible by boat.

Los Llanos has a tropical climate and wildlife is most abundant during the dry season, when the heat is also more bearable.

Generally speaking, average temperatures experience little variation during the year, although in elevated regions such as the Andes the climate is cooler.
