    Aguaro-Guariquito National Park

    by salinhopt Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Life here is marked by implacable drought, which lasts from 4 to 6 months, and by rains which flood large extensions of terrain. The landscape is crossed by many rivers, streams, patches of "Moriche" palm forests and lagoons, as well as immense savannas which the eyes can not take in all at once. The source of many streams of water are from springs in the park, which flow into the Guariquito river and finally into the Orinoco river.

    It belongs, both geographically and ecologically, to the plains region. It has a uniform relief, almost without elevations, with abundant sandbanks, lowlands and marshes. In the main rivers, small terraces can be observed.

The monument measures 19,8m and was cut in Calabozo, on the Mount El Calv?rio and, later, taken to the San Juan, in 1935.
