Delta of Orinoco- Venezuela

The Delta of the Orinoco, The legendary Delta Amacuro State is located at the northeast region of Venezuela and it has about 350 kilometres of coastal line along the Atlantic Ocean. Still, the visitors that have contact with its natural beauties and the indigenous populations are few. Why? Except for about 120 kilometres of roads around the state’s capital city called Tucupita, in this places you have to go on fluvial ways, formed by hundreds of the Orinoco River pipes and arms. The Orinoco is the eighth longest river of the world, the second one in the continent, after the Amazons and the widest of the world. With a length of 2.160 kilometres and with it outlet into the Atlantic Ocean, the Orinoco River brings about 18.000 cubic meters per second of waters into the ocean, adding about 44.5 meters of new land per year.

The main tourist attraction of this region is represented by its ecosystem, the Waraos Indian population and the humid tropical forest. The journey, either through the main river (Mánamo) or through its caños, is a wonderful experience, and allowing the pure air coming from the shade of the jungle to invade Delta Orinoco you is just delightful. This tropical humid forest is home of the Moriche Palm from which Warao obtain the raw material to make handcrafts, baskets, handbags and hammocks.

The best thing to do is listening to the sound of silence in the forest at night, sleeping in your Eco Camp overlooking the river. The combination of the background music made by river dolphins (toninos) and seadogs, combined with the unusual sound of the jungle, brought in by a soft breeze while watching either the full moon or a fantastic starry sky is bewitching. It is an unique destination.
