This is not luxury accommodation, but it's more than adequate. The rooms are vast, with air conditioning and free bottled water in a refrigerator. Finally, in Venezuela, I got hot water coming straight out of the shower! The meals in the dining hall are substantial and varied; the meat comes from the ranch. There's a swimming pool and a very...

Support the positive comments about wildlife. Just mind blowing how much life these places can support. A fair drive out there but probably doable in 3 days/2 nights. We did 3 nights and chilled. Kids very happy with such a cool experience. Dawn shouldn't be missed. Non stop capybara delight. We had our own fishing rods and kids just were... More

one of the highlights of our trip! friendly and helpfull staff. Plenty of food, considering the distant location and good variation. Even if you are not a naturalist the views will blow you away. Basic accomodation. They were renovating the pool. Will be fun once its finished.

We just returned from a tour of Venezuela. We stayed at the ranch for 4 Days/3 Nights. The staff are very accomodating and friendly, even with a Spanish/English language barrier! Our guide, Rafael, spoke fluent english and really tried his best for us to see everything we did. We saw many species of birds, inlcuding a great horned owl, caimans,... More

First, this is a "working cattle ranch". Lodging, food, noise and roads is what is expected at a true ranch. Thank goodness Hato el Cedral is NOT A PLUSH RESORT. There is a reason so many birds and wild animals are abundant on the ranch grounds. The workers and managers at the ranch do an amazing job of keeping the... More

Let's start with the very good. The wildlife at the ranch is brilliant. There is so much of it that I would have no hesitation in comparing the animal and bird spotting experience to somewhere like the Galapagos. The boat excursions were particularly good. An experience that I'll never forget. Now the very bad. The ranch was taken over by... More

We have just spent three days here & had the most amazing experience of bird life that we have ever had but please expect that to be the only highlight of your trip as there was not one English speaker there when we arrived and in fact no one who spoke English there (other than a few guides for some...

First Of all this property is NOT in Caracas as stated by Tripadvisor. It is in Los Lllanos in Apure state! It needs to be merged with another listing " El Cedral Ranch Elorza, Venezuela" The wildlife is the reason to be here and I think most people would not be disappointed. The excursion by boat was particularly memorable. Three... More

My wife and I decided that for our honeymoon we wanted an adventure - and a tour of Venezuela seemed to fit the bill. Our first stop was three nights at El Cedral, and it proved to be a magical start to our trip. The staff were welcoming and the guide (Rafael) excellent. The food was delicious traditional Venezuelan such... More

We went on a safari on our first afternoon and saw lots of wildlife: birds, deer, capybaras, anteater, iguanas. Our rooms were very basic with a small bathroom, a small refrigerator and two twin size beds. There were lots of mosquitoes and some other flying insects in our room. Food was basic : scrambled eggs for breakfast and partially melted... More
