Roundtrips | Classic Eastern Venezuela

Sorry, for the inconvenience but this page is not yet translated.

We visit the most famous and exciting places during this round trip in eastern Venezuela. Canaima with the Angel Falls, the highest waterfall in the world, the animal rich Orinoco delta and the best Caribbean beaches like Playa Medina!
This round trip is organized by Kreis deutschsprachiger Posadas mit Tourangeboten.

Tag 1: Maiquetia (Caracas) - Ciudad Bolivar (-, -, -)

Flight to Ciudad Bolivar, welcome cocktail, briefing and overnight stay at Posada La Casita in Ciudad Bolivar.

Tag 2: Ciudad Bolivar - Canaima (F, M, A)

In the morning we leave Ciudad Bolivar with a small 5 seat Cessna. During the flight we have a fantastic view above the Guri lake, the Caroni river and the Gran Sabana. After arrival in Canaima we cross the famous Canaima lagoon with a dugout. This lagoon is fed by five waterfalls and is also a great photo opportunity. In the afternoon we walk behind the impressive Salto Sapo. We need bathing suits because we will get wet! Overnight stay is in beds opposite the Canaima lagoon. Here we also get a warm dinner.

Tag 3: Canaima - Angel Fall (F, M, A)

Today we drive up the Carrao river heading the the Angel Falls. Water level permitting it takes about 4 hours. In dry season the guides have to push the dugout along the rocks. We get an incredible beautiful view of the Auyan Tepui inside the devils canyon. Afterwards we walk about 90 minutes to a viewpoint of the Angel Falls. It is a great feeling standing below the highest waterfall in the world. At lunch time we get fried chicken at the banks of hte Carrao river. The overnight stay is in hammocks with view to the Angel Falls.

Tag 4: Angel Falls - Ciudad Bolivar (F, M, -)

After breakfast is the last opportunity for a morning picture of the Angel Falls. Afterwards we turn back to Canaima and take the plane back to Ciudad Bolivar. The overnight stay is again at Posada La Casita.

Tag 5: Ciudad Bolivar- Tucupita - Orinoco delta (F, M, A)

Very early in morning we drive from Ciudad Bolivar to Tucupita, the capital of state Delta Amacuro. A highlight is the overnight stay at the swimming comfort hotel "Flotel Warao" in the lonely river arm "Cano Madre vieja" among the Orinoco delta. This Flotel came from a fantastic idea. The base is a catamaran with the hotel on top made of wood. Huge windows only covered by gaze give a crazy view to untouched nature and the play of the dolphins and otter. Pickup is at the harbor of Caigual. The first trip by boat impresses immediately. It is possible to see water hyacinthine, sweet water dolphins (toninos), giant otter, water turtles and many snakes, maybe an anaconda. The excursion in the afternoon is in canoes.

Tag 6: Orinoco delta (F, M, A)

A big animal tours starts early in the morning. We navigate down a main river of the Orinoco river and have uncounted opportunities to watch the wonder of the fauna. These plant rich banks we see Howler- and Capuchin-monkeys running. The dolphins will guide our boat and we can watch crowds of birds. Lunch is at a shadow place in middle of the delta. In the afternoon we can visit a typical village of the local Warao Indigenas. Before we return to our Flotel, we fish some Piranhas for dinner. Piranhas are known as Caribe in Venezuela.

Tag 7: Orinoco delta - Carupano (F, -, -)

This day we start at dawn, the best time to watch the animals close to the Flotel. We cross a nearby lagoon and will see a lot of animals very closely.
After breakfast we start another tour through the narrow mangrove canals. Again we can watch and tape new species animals. The tour ends at the harbor where our car is waiting to take us to the Caribeean coast to Carupano.

Tag 8: Carupano (F, M, -)

Today we discover the untouched Paria peninsula, where the time stopped one-hundred years ago. To heat our senses, as the phase says, we visit the thermal springs of El Pilar. This melting pot of nature with its sulfur ambient reminds us of Faust "Witch hubbub". We get a late breakfast and boil eggs. Afterwards we visit the buffalo ranch "Rio de Agua" in the savannah of the gulf of Paria. Here we watch the water buffalos in the mud and the savannah with its birds from a viewpoint. Who want can taste fresh buffalo cheese. Then we follow the beautiful roadt via Bohordal through primary forest with immense bamboos grove until we reach "Playa Medina". Here we rest and spend some time. In the afternoon we visit the cacao hacienda "Bukare", where the owner explains how to increase the quality of cacao in a natural way. We are invited to learn the secrets of making cacao. On our way back to Posada Nena we visit the colonial village Rio Caribe and drive along the beautiful coast road.
Extending the stay at the beach and Posada Nena is always possible.

Tag 9: Carupano - Caracas (F, -, -)

After breakfast we drive to the airport of Carupano and take the plane to Maiquetia to get the international flight in time.
