For natural beauty, Venezuela is a land of surprising diversity. In the Caribbean you'll find Los Roques, which has what is arguably the most spectacular snorkeling and diving in the region. In the country's western reaches, snow glistens year-round in the northernmost fingers of the Andes. The Río Orinoco, mustering its might from a million sources in Colombia and Brazil, meanders through the broad grasslands that cover about a third of the country. You'll spot brilliantly colored tropical birds that are found only here, including the rare jabiru stork. In the far southeast, flat-top mountains tower over Parque Nacional Canaima, home to the world's highest waterfall, Angel Falls, which plummets over 2,647 feet into a bizarre landscape of inky black lagoons and plant life.
