  • Don't miss eating out at Sambil

    Isla Margarita Restaurants

    Cine Citta has great Italian food and they offer great service. Inside they have large flat screen TV's with ESPN on. I have enjoyed the food so much that usally when I or my friends decide to eat out they go there. They're very accomadating as well, last time we went .....there was 11 of us to sit and they gave us our own section with a long table...


Ciudad Bolívar

  • Jardin Botanico del Orinoco

    Ciudad Bolívar Things to Do

    The Jardin Botanico comprises both a public park and the botanical garden proper. The garden's functions are both conservation and education - it is visited by a lot of school parties. Visitors are not allowed into the botanical garden itself unless accompanied by a member of staff, but if you ask at the entrance someone may be able show you round....

  • Paseo Orinoco

    Ciudad Bolívar Things to Do

    This avenue separates the historic centre from the banks of the Orinoco river. The landward side is full of street vendors and shops selling all sorts of goods (one shop seems to specialise in motorbikes and mattresses). There is also a bakery from which delicious smells emanate, and an internet cafe.In the middle of the Paseo is the Mirador...


Parque Nacional Canaima


    Parque Nacional Canaima Warnings and Dangers

    One of my friends nearly fell into the lake after climbing down a ledge by the falls. He was unable to swim and fortunately he didn't fall in, as he would have drowned. The rock is extremely slippery due to the moisture from the falls. Thank goodness we were around to rescue him from his ordeal and escort him back to safety.


    Parque Nacional Canaima Things to Do

    We actually chartered a plane from Ciudad Bolivar to visit the Angel Falls and spent a few hours in Canaima National Park on the way, and i am determined to return there one day. The lake was beautiful and good for swimming, the falls cascading in to the lake were really impressive. We learnt that there was a large selection of animals in the park...

  • Fly to Canaima

    Parque Nacional Canaima Transportation

    The only way to get to Canaima is on a small aeroplane. I travelled with Transmandu on a small 5 seater. FLights run on Venezuelan time, when I asked what time the plane left I was told "when the pilot arrives." Also be prepared to fly with lots of supplys and luggage packed in every possible space around you. Despite the cramped conditions and...


Santa Elena de Uairén

  • Mt.Roraima

    Santa Elena de Uairén Tourist Traps

    If you are a group of 2 or more and are about to embark on this journey. Pay the park ranger to trek the mountain on your own. They wouldnt let me go as I was solo but there reason for not letting me go was that very reason.The ranger was a d!ckhead because he would have got a decent days pay if he had of let me go alone, but he did say anymore...


    Santa Elena de Uairén Things to Do

    The 'tepuys' of La Gran Sabana are stupendously awesome. They are formed millions and millions of years ago. In fact, this area is probably the same sort of land (not much eroded, not much created) from the Pangaea days when South America was connected to Africa like a jigsaw puzzle.This is the mystical area that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle got inspired...


    Santa Elena de Uairén Local Customs

    When you arrive here in Santa Elena, you can't help but notice the rows and rows of cars waiting to get their tanks filled. There were rows for Brazilians, rows for Venezuelans and rows for tourists. And these rows were controlled by the military police.As petrol is so cheap here in Venezuela, Brazilians come here in loads to buy petrol. There is a...


Ciudad Guayana

  • Parque Cachamay: Stay where people are

    Ciudad Guayana Warnings and Dangers

    In several maps you can see a land connection between Parque Cachamay/Loefling and Parque La Llovizna, near the Macagua dam. I wanted to visit La Llovizna via this connection and was robbed by four boys with a long knife I saw before fishing in the river. They took money and camera, so better take a taxi...

Caicara de Orinoco

  • Ferries and Riverboats on the Orinoco

    Caicara de Orinoco Transportation

    Caicara is a center of shipping traffic, particularly produce and cattle sailing down the river. There's regular ferry service across the river to Cabruta, and riverboats do head upstream as far as Puerto Ayacucho. The river is very wide here. The waterfront is the place to learn about what possibilities exist, but travel to Puerto Ayacucho on a...

  • Caicara to Puerto Ayacucho

    Caicara de Orinoco Transportation

    Caicara is about 6 hours from Puerto Ayacucho over what was a new highway in the early 1990's. The traffic is light, and there are very few places to stop along the way. Rain is frequent here, so make sure the wipers are in good shape. The highway is well graded however, and so it shouldn't flood. There are several bridges to cross, but these are...

  • Breakfast, Venezuelan Style

    Caicara de Orinoco Restaurants

    Venezuelan food is one of the country's best kept secrets. There are many very unique dishes, particularly in the "fast food" category, that one would think should spread world-wide for their variety. In Caicara, there is easy acces to fresh fruits, cheezes, meats, fish, and many other agricultural products. For me, a perfect breakfast is either a...
