Welcome to Guayana
The southeastern region of Guayana (not to be confused with the country Guyana) showcases Venezuela at its exotic best. The area is home to the world’s highest waterfall, Salto Ángel; the impossibly lush Parque Nacional Canaima; the wildlife-rich Orinoco Delta (Delta del Orinoco) and Río Caura; the Venezuelan Amazon and La Gran Sabana (The Great Savanna) where flat-topped tepui mountains lord over rolling grasslands. Visitors often spend an entire trip in this area of the country.
The majority of the country’s indigenous groups live in Guayana, including the Warao, the Pemón and the Yanomami, which constitute about 10% of the region’s total population.
