VENEZUELA

WHERE THE CARIBBEAN ENDS AND THE ANDES BEGIN

Diversity and solitude make Venezuela different than other Caribbean locales farther to the north. Here, where the Caribbean Sea meets the Andes Mountains, visitors have more options to see and explore more things away from the usual beach-hogging crowds.

Holidayers in search of sunny days and exciting nights can find it on Margarita Island, a beach lover's dream just north of the Venezuela coast. Here, windsurfing, sunbathing, gambling and duty-free shopping are just some of the things to do in an attractive, powdery white-sand setting.

But tourists in search of a more rugged adventure can head to the mainland, where the Andes await their exploration. From Ciudad de Merida, visitors can set out on foot, on horseback, or on the world's highest cable car.

La Puerta Historic Site is another mountain hideaway where visitors can come to saddle up and put their everyday worries to rest. And when they're done exploring the area's beautiful rivers, historic churches and colorful flora, they can return to a resort-style setting with all the amenities they've come to expect in an apartments4you resort.
