  • The person seeking to achieve feel really and very near the immensity and power of nature, simply go to this area of the Venezuelan Guayana, where the force of the river and its falls will make you feel in all its intensity.

  • Not there are words that can describe the experience and the energy of the ride. In our case and group (5 adults and 4 children (6-9 years)) we stayed in Sta. Elena de Uairén, before making the trip we contacted through the posada transport to the site, even if we have vehicle rustic, it's much better and quieter delegate lead in a third, especially thinking of the return which one is exhausted and would be a risk on the road also people offering transfers are referred to the "tricks" of the route. Arriving at the Indian camp the boat (which includes the cost of the Guide), must be paid from the camp to the Salto travel are 30 minutes downstream, those people who suffer from panic, I do not advise the ride, since the boat dock about 500 m before the fall of water. Then have the option of walking and lower until the foot of the jump, the descent is of ones 20-30 minutes, the road is steep and is difficult its rise for people older or with problems physical. All physical exertion has its reward at the foot of the jump, they must be careful because the mist of the waterfall, the ground is slippery to get down. If you go with children, these should be able to go up and down unaided or with little help. Remember to carry sufficient hydration, if they are planning to lunch at the camp returning from the visit to the waterfall, I advise you to book or "palabrear" food before taking the canoe to go to jump. This ride uses them throughout the day.

  • I recommend going after rainy season, from July to August. cuirara travel, provided wear sunscreen, mosquito repellent to cross jumps inside, carry Middle implementations to facilitate walking through the slippery rocks.
