The Amateur Traveler talks to Diana Higuera who is a native of Venezuela who worked for a number of years as a tour guide on adventure tours to see Venezuela’s wildlife and natural beauty.
Diana takes us on a virtual tour starting in Margarita island, then heading to the Los Roques archipelago north of Venezuela, then in an Indian canoe up the Orinoco river.
From there we will head to the tepuis (table-top mountains) in Canaima National Park in Venezuela’s Amazon basin. There we will see the highest waterfall in the world at Angel Falls. We will also go behind Sapo falls.
Along the way, we will see birds, monkeys, and anacondas. We will fish for piranas, pet crocodiles and eat street food in Venezuela.
