We actually went two days in a row. The first day we took an outboard powered canoe ride for about three hours upstream passing through many rapids most of which seemed impassable and in fact we did scrape bottom on several but the canoe is carved from a solid tree trunk so very sturdy. Don't be put off by this... More

The water here is the color of tea and feels so soft on your skin and hair. You can sit under waterfalls or just float on the waves. Priceless!

We did Angel Falls in Canaima National Park and it was an absolutely breathtaking experience. It is as good as it seems in videos and pictures. I would highly recommend the fly over and the treking experience both.

This is probably the most remote location I've taken a trip to and it was worth it. Starting out in Ciudad Bolivar we took a small plane to the village of Canaima. Our tour group consisted of 20 people and our local tour guide spoke both spanish and english. We stayed one night in the small village and took a... More

From Tucupita taxied to Porto Ordaz. Overnight. Excellent accommodation here. From Porto Ordaz took a plane to Canaima National Park. The view over the rivers was breathtaking. Here alone is worth...

It's just a waterfall. No, it's not. It's more than that. And until you see it - via hiking, small plane, or whatever, you will not understand that completely. Life changing. And if you are in a small plane, seeing the tops of the tepuis is just as fascinating. If you have the privilege to get here - you must... More

It is not easy to reach this magnificent site. You have to fly with 6 seat Chesna from Ciudad Bolivar to Canaima and the flight takes a bit over an hour. Canaima is an attraction in itself with several beatiful falls that plunge into what they call "laguna", actualy a river lake. This is where you normally spend the night.... More

Yes its not easy to get there...a flight from Caracas to Puerto Ordaz, a 2nd flight to Canaima National Park, a... More

Reaching the place is not easy. But all the work pays off when you see this amazing falls, a one of a kind place you will remember for the rest of your life. First, you catch a small plane from Ciudad Bolívar. You will fly to Canaima and spend a night there. On the next day, you will catch a... More

It takes several forms of transportation to get here, but the lack of roads to Canaima & Salto Angel is part of the magic of the trip. The flight over the lush forest, the boat ride up the Coca-Cola coloured river, and the light hiking up to the base of the Falls all add to the amazing experience. It's wonderful... More
