For some reason, I had expected that the motor boats on the Orinoco Delta would go slowly, like on the Norfolk Broads where there are speed restrictions to protect the wildlife.
In fact they can go pretty fast, especially when transporting you to and from your lodge or camp. The boats don't have any windshield, so it's helpful to wear sunglasses that can double as goggles, and also to wear a hat, if you ever want to be able to comb your hair again!

When you get off your boat in Vulcan, you need to get to Tucupita which lies 10 km away. There would always be a taxi ready to take you which charges 4 usd but if you are a little patient, a rickety bus with hello kitty towels hung all over the bus arrives soon to take you there for 25 cents
There are taxis, usually old american cars with broken windows and torn upholstery withextremely pleasant drivers who dont cheat you. You must know the price before hand though. it is around 2000 bs within town, 3000 bs to saxxi but everything goes up after dark including your ability to engage a taxi...
