Waterfall on Chuao River, Henry Pittier National Park (Venezuela)
Venezuela

The Path Turmero-Chuao is a very visited one by hikers of Venezuela, it goes through large part of the Henry Pittier National Park forest and goes from the village of Turmero to the coastal village of Chuao, since it has no other land access, for this reason, the route has been used since colonial times to transport goods and cocoa, becoming known as "La Ruta del Cacao" ("The Cocoa Route") 

Throughout the course of the Chuao river and its tributaries, waterfalls are small and have become entertainment venues for camping and climbing and are visited in any season.

More About South America

South America makes up the southern half of the Americas and a large part of Latin America. It's home to the world's longest mountain range, biggest waterfall and largest river -- even these mammoths pale in comparison to the stunning variety of life forms thriving in the rainforest. To the northwest, off the coast of Ecuador, lie the Galapagos Islands, which are unique for hosting species not found anywhere else on earth. These were the subject of study for Charles Darwin in his theory of evolution, which he himself said will require proof in every single case. The main languages in South America are Spanish and Portugese, which basically tells you which European countries colonized the place. The South American wars of independence took place over two decades in the early 19th century, led by Simon Bolivar of Venezuela and Jose san Martin of Argentina. Following liberation from Portugal and Spain, South America took off into its own development, capitalizing on the rich deposits of oil, gold, copper, silver and tango musicians. Brazil is the largest country in South America and home to one of the world's best parties, Carnaval. Have you heard of samba music? How about bossa nova? Maybe dancing for three days straight? I can't say enough good things about South America. All the world's continents have amazing secrets and treasures laying in wait for your discovery, but in South America... just have a look at our pictures while you're waiting for online confirmation of your plane tickets to hit your inbox.Text by Steve Smith.
