Getting There

Venezuela is well served by European and American airlines, with direct flights from various major centres. From London it is often cheaper to fly via Europe.

With attractions quite well spread, and some fairly remote, most travellers to Venezuela will find themselves taking an internal flight. Local airlines include Avensa, LAI and Aeropostal. It’s worth investigating an air pass, which will give you a set number of flights on your visit.

Getting Around 

Venezuela’s road network is extensive but not particularly good, and in Amazonas, they can often disappear. Bus services between the major cities however are generally very good – ask for local advice about specific companies. 

Quicker but more expensive minibus taxis, called por puesto service smaller villages and towns.

Driving in Venezuela is not recommended. The roads can be dangerous – especially at night – and theft from motor vehicles is an acknowledged problem.
