"Head straight to La Gran Sabana" Venezuela Things to Do Tip by veegoozie

Venezuela Things to Do: 187 reviews and 278 photos

Take an overnight bus with some muscle relaxers and go all the way to the border with Brazil. I found it to be the best way to get there, flights are inconsistent and you will most likely spend the night in PTO Ordaz or Cuidad Bolivar which aren't as special as La Gran Sabana. Once you get to Sta Elena de Urainen take a jeep to El Paujii. It is a small artisan town of about 300 people. IT is up in the hills and has amazing views of the Tepuy's. There is pleny waterfalls to explore and most people cultivate honey or many other berry derived products. Bring old kid clothes for the indegenous community. But one store that has everything, dirt roads and very very special people. The nights are quiet and illuminated by the stars. It is a magical place that you should definately stay at for two weeks. It changed my perspective of time. Just throw your watch out the window and go relax and feel the energy. If a storm is rolling in you will have a treat as the earth shakes your bones.
