Venezuela: Canoeing

South America's Hidden Gem

Caracas is some 25 kilometres inland from the coast. However, you can kayak on the coast near Caracas. Unfortunately, the road between Caracas and the coast is very busy and the trip from the city to the seaside can take an hour or more in bad traffic. If you really want to kayak while in Caracas, you may want to stay on the coast for a few days so that you don’t need to commute back and forth from the city to the coast.

Elsewhere in Venezuela top places for kayaking include the Orinoco Delta in the Mochima National Park on the north coast, as well as the islands of Los Roques and Isla Margarita.
