In the morning we head towards San Juan de Galdones from Carupano with the car, which is a small fisher village in the east. Already on the way we can enjoy the diverse vegetation offered. Once we have arrived in San Juan we will stop for some fresh juice in a posada before we continue towards our destination in a small fishing boat. In the course of the afternoon we will arrive, set up camp and meet the kind locals.
Our destination on the second day is the cave which is home to the Guacharo birds which can only be found in very few other Venezuelan caves. They are birds which are about 45 cm big and are nocturnal which orientate themselves by the echo they make.
The hike is about 2 hours and will lead us along the riverside in the middle of the jungle. During the hike we will pass many beautiful waterfalls where we will have the opportunity to swim. With a little luck we might see the brown lymph-colibris which can only be found here in this area. Some of the passages of this tour will be secured with a rope.
Once we have returned from the tour there is also the possibility to go fishing with a fishing boat. Afterwards as the night falls we can enjoy a bonfire and listen to the impressive noises of the rainforest.
Return to San Juan de Galdones by boat and from there on to Carupano where we will arrive by midday.
