Venezuela is a country of natural beauty and contrasts. The snow capped mountains of the Andes; the steamy Amazonian Jungles; the beautiful Gran Sabana plateau with flat top mountains (tepuis) and 3000 kilometres of white - sand beaches lining the Caribbean coast. Venezuela has the largest South America’s lake, Maracaibo Lake, the fourth largest river, the Orinoco, and the world’s highest waterfall, Angel Falls.
The country’s climate is predominantly tropical. Temperatures rarely vary more than a few degrees. Venezuela’s climatic zones are defined by rainfall rather than by differences in temperature.
There are regional variations in rainfall, while the Caribbean Islands and the northern coastal region remain dry, the mountain slopes of northern Venezuela are normally wet, the Amazons remain wet for most of the year and in the Llanos (vast plains) extensive floods during the rain period are followed by severe droughts in the dry season.
Like all tropical countries, Venezuela has two seasons, the dry season known as verano (from December to April/ May) and the rainy season known as invierno (from May to November).
