Where to go when - our guide to The Venezuelan Llanos

The weather in The Venezuelan Llanos is wide and varied

Vast, sweeping grasslands and marshes, flooded by the Orinoco river system, are home to a cornucopia of vibrant wildlife. As well as the livestock of local llanero cowboys, discover capybaras, anacondas, toucans, Scarlet ibis, Hyacinth macaws and parakeets. The tropical climate is split into the wet season (May - November) with extremely hot, humid weather and submerged lowlands, and the dry season (December - April) with clearer skies and cooling breezes. The best period to visit is probably at the end of the rains- it is less humid and the water levels have dropped, but you can still explore by boat.
