- Day 1: Caracas / Ocumare De La Costa
A scenic 3 hr drive from Caracas with the last 1 1/2 hrs driving up high into the clouded rainforest of Henri Pittier (Venezuela’s first National Park). Arrive to where the “rainforest meets the sea” one can enjoy the local beaches of Cata and Catica if you arrive early enough in the day (try to avoid Venezuelan holidays though). The secluded beaches are often deserted mid week, except for the local vendors of fresh fish, local seafood and refreshing Caribbean cocktails. Enjoy the accommodations of two different lodges during your stay. On the mainland cycles are available to do your own self exploration.
We suggest spending the first night at De La Costa Ecolodge to explore the area’s beaches and your other nights at Coral Lagoon Lodge in La Cienaga. De La Costa Ecolodge (B) or Coral Lagoon Lodge (all inclusive)
- Day 2, 3 & 4: La Cíenaga
Visit the spectacular saltwater lagoon of La Cienaga surrounded on three sides by mountainous rainforest. Swim, snorkel, kayak and explore the mangroves, tiny beaches and explore our nature trails behind the mangroves in the xerophytic rain forest where it is possible to see monkeys, deer, wild pigs and tracks of larger animals. Learn about the importance of mangroves in our ecosystem. Dive (optional) the many different locations in and around the lagoon – including two sunken “ships” close by. (B, L, D)
