Venezuela: Sailing

South America's Hidden Gem

Although not far from the Caribbean Sea, Caracas is separated from the coast by a steep mountain range and it is too difficult and time consuming to commute between the waters around port by El Litoral Central and Caracas for a day’s sailing. Away from the capitol, there is some great sailing in Venezuela. Venezuela has a long coastline – more than 2,000 kilometres and several islands – making it idea place for sailing in the Caribbean. The archipelago islands of Los Roques have the best sailing in Venezuela. Plus it is easy to hire a yacht here, so go to Los Roques if you want to sail while in Venezuela.
