Venezuela: Surfing

South America's Hidden Gem

While you can’t surf in the capital Caracas (as it is too far from the coast) there is some good surfing to be had all along the Venezuelan coastline. There is also some good surfing to be had on Isla Margarita as well. The waves are most powerful during the hurricane season (August to November), though consistency can be a problem. During the winter the surf in Venezuela is less dramatic, but more reliable. From beginners to advanced, and everything in between, Venezuela caters to every type of surfer. So if you are looking for a place to surf with a Latin American feel – you may want to try surfing in Venezuela.
