Day 2 : Sail across Canaima Lake and Behold its Wonderful Waterfalls.
This day, we will visit Canaima National Park, one of the largest national parks in the planet, named a World Heritage Site by Unesco. It is renowned for being a natural reserve that has abrupt relief special and unique around the world, the tepuis, which are a kind of table-top mountain millions of years old, with vertical walls and almost flat tops. These constitute a unique biological environment and are also of great geological interest. Their sheer cliffs and waterfalls create spectacular landscapes. We leave the Posada at 7:00 a.m. for a 15-minute drive to Ciudad Bolívar airport. Next, board your plane to Canaima. This flight takes 1 hour 15 min, and the luggage weight allowance is up to 10 kg per traveller.
On your arrival in Canaima, you’ll be free the rest of the morning. Lunch will be served at your camp in Canaima. In the afternoon, we will go for a boat ride across the Canaima Lake and see the Ucaima, Wadaima and Hacha waterfalls. Then, we can visit Anatoly Island, and walk to La Playita (small beach) where you can go swimming and discover the Sapo and Sapito waterfalls. Besides, you can go swimming in the pool under the waterfalls. Length of visit: about 2h (1h walking).
Accommodation: Depending on the weather conditions, you can stay overnight at a camp located on the Anatoly island, opposite Canaima waterfalls; here you'll sleep in bed or in a hammock (cold water and electricity at night), or you could also stay at Kavac, a village within the Park (cold water, bedrooms, electricity)
