A Lagoon, moody blues, & Frog Waterfalls

While we waited for our flight in Ciudad Bolivar this little plane landed. I stared it thinking: wow- who’s gonna get in THAT thing. Looked like it was ready for retirement, I thought. ”Look at that little toy plane babe,” I say. Mike stared at me for a minute. Then he calmly tells me that this is [...]

Wildlife safari through Los Llanos- Venezuela’s vast grassland

We booked an wildlife safari tour through Los Llanos last year.

We decided to come to Merida for several reasons-all of them adventure sports. Merida is Venezuela’s extreme sport capital-and the roads leading there give for some intense mountain views. The bus ride to Merida found us arriving at night-and as dusk fell the breeze got a little cooler and the air just seemed to smell [...]

860 flavors of Ice Cream in Merida at the Heladeria Coromoto

When I think about having ice cream-which can be often-my cravings usually consist of strawberry or vanilla, or some kind of plain chocolate.

Dorito stealing monkeys at Parque Cachamay in Puerto Ordaz

Recovering from what we thought was certain death by food poisoning acquired in Cuidad Bolivar, we figured we’d lay low for a day or two here in Puerto Ordaz. There isn’t really much to do in this expensive port town, unless you really like air-conditioned malls or spending loads of money on taxis. This is [...]

Puerto Ordaz and $40 dollar pizza tales

Ciudad Guayana is on the backpacker’s route for one reason only: Puerto Ordaz. The cities of Puerto Ordaz and San Felix make up what is known as Cuidad Guayana, but backpackers usually pass through Puerto Ordaz on their way to Canaima National Park or the Gran Sabana. We ended up in Puerto Ordaz escaping one [...]

A cozy apartment rental in Merida for travelers-Merida Suites

After our expensive first nights’ stay here in Merida, we looked around for cheaper lodgings. This town was definitely a laid back chill spot -our kind of place.
