Unique combination of Venezuelan gems!

This is one of the most complete combinations in Venezuela.
It is not only the remarkable Angel Falls Expedition but the gems of Eastern Venezuela.
We will visit the swamps of the Orinoco Delta, land of the Warao indigenous people with great wildlife observation opportunities (River Dolphins, Red Howler Monkeys, Toucans, Macaws and much more) and unique landscapes. We will go up to the Mountains of Turimiquire Massif where we find the the Guacharo Cave Natural Monument, coffee plantations and quite authentic farmers villages on the way to Mochima National Park, the perfect place to observe Dolphins and relax by the beach before riding a ferry boat to Isla Margarita.
