Venezuela is home to some of South America’s most breathtaking natural wonders, and some of them happen to be waterfalls. They’re scattered all around this country and some of them aren’t so easy to reach, but these three definitely deserve a moment of your time.

Angel Falls

If we had to pick Venezuela’s biggest natural wonder, it would be this waterfall. Measuring 979 meters, Angel Falls is the world’s tallest uninterrupted waterfall, and it’s one of the country’s most popular attractions despite the fact it’s difficult to visit due to its secluded location in the middle of the jungle.

Cuquenan Falls

Another beautiful waterfall in Venezuela that will take your breath away, Cuquenan Falls is the second tallest major waterfall in this country right behind Angel Falls. It also ranks as one of the highest waterfalls in the world, and it’s a joy to watch it pour down towards the base of the Kukenan Tepui.

Llovizna Falls

If you have a special place in your heart for cascading waterfalls, Llovizna Falls deserves a spot on your bucket list. Located on the Caroní River, this waterfall will rock your world with its spectacular flow, which looks more epic than ever when the floodgates of the nearby Macagua Dam are open.
