Angel Falls is known around the world as it is the highest waterfall you can visit. You can locate it in the Canaima National Park and the best visit time cannot be recommended because during rainy season it is hard to see the falls while during the dry season you might end up with not much water falling. However, it is a really good idea to visit during spring, February to May. Many of the local tours are 3 nights long. You will also love to spend more time since there are various animals that have to be discovered.
