Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Caracas Airport - Morrocoy National Park. You will be greeted at the Caracas airport and transfered to Morrocoy National Park. The Morrocoy National Park is located between Tucacas and Chichiriviche in the eastern Caribbean coast of Falcon State. Beautiful, isolated tropical beaches, shallow coral reefs and mangrove swamps are part of its unique ecosystem. Its complex mangrove-lined channels and estuaries - protected by the confines of the maritime areas of the park - are an ideal hideaway for snorkelers, divers, water-skiers, kayakers, birdwatchers, windsurfers and beach lovers.

In addition, the mangroves are an important nesting ground for frigate birds, scarlet ibis, pink flamingoes, crested herons, cormorants and ducks.The park has about 30 keys (e.g. Cayos Borracho, Pelón, Sombrero, Muerto, Sal, Playuela and Peraza), some of which are covered in palm trees and mangroves and others are desert islets of pure white sand. Underneath, the surface of warm, clear waters, abundant coral and fish life thrive along the reefs and mangrove roots.

The mangroves serve as lively rookeries for pink flamingos, herons, scarlet ibis and frigate birds while the nearby salt lagoon and tidal flat of the Cuare Nature Preserve is a perfect location for morning and afternoon wildlife viewing. We invite you to stay at a posada (guest house)while enjoying your stay at the Morrocoy National Park.

Day 2: Morrocoy National Park. After breakfast, take excursions to one of the keys and dive for example in cayo sur, medio or norte. If you feel like taking an open water, advance, stress and rescue and/or nitrox diving class that can also be arranged at an extra cost. Overnight at a posada. Includes: (B).
