Venezuela: An Eco Adventurer's Paradise

Venezuela is home to more than 25 different ecosystems, including the Andes Mountains, a long coastline, numerous islands and archipelagoes, the Orinoco Delta, the central floodable plains, and the vast Orinoco-Amazon rainforest system, which covers more than 40% of the country. The choice for the eco traveler is endless. This program presents many of the best wild areas that make Venezuela a paradise for the naturalist and the adventurer traveler. Here we take the Magical Autana trip to the sacred Piaroa Mountain; next, a breathtaking journey to the highest waterfalls in the world, Angel Falls; then we visit the surprising land known as the Orinoco Delta, where its native inhabitants, the Warao tribe, unveils the secrets of their jungle. We move on to the Los Roques archipelago, one of the most pristine submarine ecosystems in the Caribbean; then to the Orinoco, a smaller version of the Pantanal, which is famous for its bird life, especially the waterfowl in huge flocks; and we close visiting the Andes, showing off some of the extreme sports travelers can enjoy in this amazing land. 05/10DE JSCA 30 min.
