Caura Lodge , Venezuela

The Caura Lodge is located some 155 miles southwest of Ciudad BolÝvar on the riverbanks of the Caura at the outskirts of the small agricultural and fishing town of Las Trincheras. Situated inside a 12.36 million acres forest reserve, the largest in Venezuela, the Caura Lodge is an attractive and picturesque compound of colonial style structures that offer two choices of lodging. Sleep beneath a thatched roof Indian hut in hammocks with mosquito nets escorted by the sounds of the virgin rain forests or in one of the only 6 double rooms equipped with ceiling fans, mosquito nets and private bathrooms for more comfort. The lodge also counts with kitchen, living room and a fine cook. A terrace overlooking peculiar natural scenery is the center of almost all activities in the camp, such as morning and evening meals or plain relaxing. The river shore close by is good for fishing, swimming and exploring with a kayak.

All inclusive vacation packages are offered and include accommodations, meals, excursions and roundtrip overland transfers from Ciudad BolÝvar or Puerto Ordaz. Different daily tours are on hand, such as Cerro Cangrejo (Crab), a magnificent hiking trip to a hill from where superb views of the Caura River course and its untouched rainforest can be enjoyed. Pe˝a Negra is a sandstone rock island in the middle of the river. Ca˝o Mato is a small tributary good to observe river wildlife. Different Indian villages of the Yekuana (Makiritare) tribe are found along the riverbanks. For a complete insight to this seldom tripped region of Venezuela, sign up for our 4 nights Expedition to Para Falls, one of the most spectacular yet least visited waterfalls in the country.

Overland transportation is available from both Ciudad BolÝvar and Puerto Ordaz and charter flights by small planes can leave from Caracas, Ciudad BolÝvar, Puerto Ordaz and other nearby cities to the little village of Maripa.
