Afternoon short hike along a nature trail to the Kavac Canyon, a narrow gorge to a secluded pool, where we enjoy a refreshing dip.

Along the river we stop for beautiful hikes. The Estrechura or Perwa Rapids, which we encounter this afternoon, are the most spectacular of the route. Sleep in hammocks at camp Arenal. Enjoy superb panoramas of the Tepuys from camp.

    Muchísimas gracias por todo su trabajo en la organización de nuestra visita al Parque Nacional Canaima esta semana. Fue uno de los mejores viajes de aventura de mi vida, y un regalo perfecto para mi madre. Su colega Felix es un guía extraordinario. Muchas gracias de haber incluido un guia con su nivel de conocimiento botánico, era exactemente lo que buscabamos.
