One of the most beautiful regions in Venezuela is "los llanos", those huge plains where only the horizon stops your sight. Both, the vegetation and the fauna are full of beauty. Several ecosystems will make a trip to this region an unforgettable one.

In this region there are only two very different seasons, where life changes completely: Rainy and dry season. In the first one, the woods, the rivers, the trees show all their beauty. A large part of the region is under the water. In the second one the become yellow and brown, and the dust covers most part of the plains, but that is when all the wildlife converges in the few spots where water is present. It is the season where you can see more birds and animals. The difference between the two seasons is so big, that you can't say that you know the "llanos" if you don't go in both periods.

Summer (dry season) is the best moment for bird and watchers, because all the animals must go to the few spots where the water is. Transportation in winter (rainy season) is also more difficult because many roads are flooded under water. However in this season is when nature is more spectacular.
