If you are in Venezuela during the months of December and January,  travel to the western side of Venezuela to see beautiful religious and folkloric festivities. It is a great time to enjoy and appreciate colorful and traditional events.

In December for example, the western side of the country has the highest concentration of events, especially between the 28th and 29th of December where they honor San Benito and commemorate the Holy Innocents. Sanare in Lara, is renowned for its “Zaragoza” who take the village streets on the 28th. Read more

Are you an adrenaline junkie?

Rafting in the Siniguis (IV – V) and Acequia Rivers (Level III) is said to be the best water coaster in all of Venezuela. You can also find good rafting in Puerto La Cruz and the Gran Sabana, but none like these. These rivers are born in Pico Bolivar “Bolivar Peakand as there is no population between Guamanchi and the top of the mountain the water is clear and wonderful to raft in. I did rafting in Chile, where I am, but the levels here are tremendous! “Qué cosa tan buena”!
