Overview

Emphasizing ecotravel, this guide describes the wide-ranging opportunities for travelers exploring a country easily accessible from the United States. Possessing nearly 100 species of hummingbird alone, Venezuela has a fantastic array of wildlife--capybara, tapir, sloths, anteaters, armadillos, and vampire bats are just a few of the animal species which can be observed in their natural habitats, while a host of birdwatching locations are detailed.
Find an impressive 43 national parks, including the marine parks of offshore islands, and 20 natural monuments including table mountains, with suggestions for hikes through cloudforests to Andean glaciers and the chance of spotting rare orchids. Take a trip to Angel Falls, travel to the Orinoco Delta wetlands where the river meets the Atlantic Ocean, visit the region where the Warao ┬┐canoe people┬┐ live, or try out a wide range of sports: from caving, climbing and cycling to diving, sailing and windsurfing. Margarita Island--the "Pearl of the Caribbean"--and a good range of beaches are also covered for the traveler wanting to follow in the footsteps of Robinson Crusoe and enjoy desert-island seclusion.

Read an Excerpt

There are still few tourists although the number is steadily increasing. Each visitor is therefore even more of an ambassador for his own country than is true elsewhere. Eritrea does not offer the best diving, or the best food, or top class hotels, or particularly inspiring archaeological sites. That it has all of these, of whatever standard, is surprising enough for most visitors. But best of all are the people. The road ahead may be fraught with difficulties, but these will be more easily negotiated now there is peace, and good relations with the new, government in neighbouring Ethiopia. Those who go now to see Eritrea will have a marvellous opportunity to watch and experience the growth of a new nation.
