Itinerary Overview

I traveled to venezuela in 2017 when the political and economic situation was very difficult, but to make my bicycle trip through south america I had to go through this country. But fortunately the months I spent in this country have always been well received by Venezuelans and the opportunity to visit Chichiriviche, a Caribbean town with amazing beaches and islands, one of the most beautiful places I have visited.

Chichiriviche is very touristy, as it is one of the starting points to the islands of the Morrocoy National Park and nearby is the Cuare Wildlife Refuge, where tourists can delight in observing the white herons and corocoras both at sunrise and  At dusk.

Many boats depart from the same port of Chichiriviche to the different islands and you only have to go there, haggle a price or sign up with any other group that is interested in going to the same island as you to lower the price.
