visiting venezuela

I'm thinking about doing this trip in May, and am wondering if you've had any trouble doing the Angel Fall by boat and hike part on past May departures due to the dry season?  Also for the first night of the trip, do you use a hotel in Caracas, or one out by the airport, since it leaves by air to Merida the next day?

Hi Jill,

Thanks for your enquiry about the trip. Although we do state in trip notes that during the dry season it may not be possible to reach Angel Falls and we can never guarantee water levels in the river, all May departures of this trip have been able to visit the falls as planned for at least the past 5 years.

At the start of the trip, we use a hotel close to Caracas airport rather than in the city itself - this makes it much easier to return to the airport the following day as it is quite a long round trip from the airport up to the capital.

Okay thanks, couple more questions.  I tried to book on the May departure last year, but it was cancelled...will the May depature be running this year?  How far in advance do you guarantee a departure?  Also, I would be joining in Venezuela, what time is the group flight out of Venezuela on the last day...or what time is the earliest I could book a flight that day and be sure we were back at the airport?  Also, if I had an extra day on either the beginning or end of the trip, is Caracas , and the ariport, and the road from the airport to Caracas, really as dangerous as the US State Department website makes it sound?  Thanks for any information.
