Overland Travel in Venezuela
Trapped in a disastrous political leadership, Venezuela is falling deeper and deeper. Honesty requires me to say that this may not be the best overland country right now. That hurts because Venezuela deserves to be visited and enjoyed. Among the most open, hospitable people, Venezuelans find ways to enjoy life despite the hardships they daily face. A country home to wild and scenic landscapes, 4×4 communities thrive and they are a good way to get to know the best overland travel destinations.
