Where to go when - our guide to Venezuela

Canaima

The weather in Venezuela is wide and varied

Venezuela is home to an array of unique ecosystems and wildlife-rich landscapes, from otherworldly tabletop tepuys and the loftiest falls on the planet to teeming rivers which flood tropical grasslands. Situated just north of the equator, temperatures do not vary greatly throughout the year, and the seasons are instead distinguished by rainfall. The drier months are November - April, when you’ll find sapphire skies, comfortable humidity and plenty of sunshine. Make the most of the clear, drier weather to soak in some of Venezuela’s staggering natural beauty: climb the ancient Mount Roraima, spot wildlife in the Orinoco Delta or roam between farming villages in the snow-capped Andean mountains. The wet season is from May - October, when gushing rivers overflow and flood the Llanos. By September, the increased water volume in Angel Falls means the cascade is full and dramatic. The beaches of the Caribbean are in fact at their driest this time of year, as they experience the most rain from November - January. The sparkling bays and coastline can get busy during holidays: Carnival in February / March and Easter as well as some weekends attract local visitors, but you’ll often have the entire beach to yourself during the week.
