Venezuela, the South American destination with a Caribbean feel is great value, has great variety, is easy going and easy to get around. Along the Caribbean coast are beaches, and national parks protecting reefs and islands. Inland, the variety of the scenery is spectacular; from the Andes in the west, through the central plains (Llanos) to the Gran Sabana region of table-top mountains and waterfalls, including Angel Falls in the south.
