Venezuela is one of the most bio diverse countries on the planet so there are lots of options to extend your stay. You can enjoy exploring Merida and extend your stay at our downtown Posada/Hostel from USD 35 per day including accommodation, breakfast and dinner (there are lots of lunchtime options!). We can arrange all manner of outdoor pursuits at short notice from hiking, climbing, mountain biking, kayaking, rafting, paragliding, horse riding... you name it! May-December is the best time of year to see the famous ‘lightening’ at Catatumbo – spectacular electrical storms caused by build up of methane gases. We can arrange 1-2 day trips here on request also. Guided Hiking trips in to the Andes can also be arranged, from half a day (for as little as $10) to 5-day excursion to the Pico Bolivar, Venezuela’s highest peak.
You may wish to take a four-day trip to visit the world famous Angel Falls.
Consider a trip to the Gran Sabana & Angel Falls - home of the indigenous Pemon Indians and the longest waterfall in the world. Angel Falls is one of many outstanding waterfalls that drop over the edge of the unique Tepui mountains.
