Tour of 3 days and 2 nights.

Day 1: Leaving out of Mérida at 7.00 am. Stop for breakfast (not included) in a bakery. Visit a sugar mill (antigua sugar factory) and stops to enjoy the scenery of the Valley of the Gonzales. The last is a very interesting and beautiful dry climate mircro. The truck is approximately 120 km to Puerto Concha where we took small boats. We do not own boats but hired the service of local fishermen. That is to help the economy of them. The first part of the 57 km by boat, passing through the jungle more lush in Western Venezuela. There we will see monkeys, birds, iguanas and an amazing vegetation. After about 4 km, the shell River opens to Lake Maracaibo, the more South America`s largest. We have a, picnic lunch we eat in the jungle. The hour and a half cross 50km from Lake, almost always, finding dolphins along the way. Around 4 pm reach village of Ologá water, with their traditional stilt houses and beautiful scenery of palms and the Ologá lagoon. There spent the night in a pile-dwelling with air acondicionado(si la planta electrica deel pueblo funciona). There are beds and hammocks with mosquito net. On this trip we have 2 nights to watch the lightning of the Catatumbo. The episode of the lightning more important, it appears after the middle of the night, so Miss dream to see it. Worth it!

Day 2: We have breakfast at 7 am and leave by boat for a ride through the jungle of the lagoon. There are Butterfly Morpho new to science, discovered by us, birds and possibly capuchin monkeys and rare as otters animals. It is the most Virgin of Western Venezuela. We had lunch at 11 am and took a NAP, well deserved after the trasnocho of lightning. A 4 pm visit to the people of the Congo Mirador, a stilt houses fascinating aquatic world, with church and Plaza Bolivar on the water! In the evening we swim in the lagoon and prepare another meal waiting, again, of the lightning.

Day 3: At 8 am, after breakfast, we turn on the back, this time by the own Rio Catatumbo. Again take the time for watching wildlife and landscapes. This route puts us in Puerto Concha at 11 am. From there we do transfer to El Vigia or Merida, depending on the destination of the passenger.
