Hi. During my planned trip to Venezuela I will be passing through Puerto Ayacucho (on my way from Roraima to Llanos) and would like to make a short cruise along the Orinoco to get an idea of the rainforest and life there. I have read in the LP Venezuela guide and on Wikipedia about public boats making a daily 3-hour trip from Pt. Ayacucho (or rather Pt. Samariapo) to San Fernando de Atabapo.
If it was possible to make a return trip in a single day from Pt. Ayacucho to San Fernando and back with a few-hour stop in San Fernando, it would fit my needs perfectly. Could anybody please confirm that these public boats are indeed running with a reasonably reliable schedule and the return trip within a day is feasible? Any details, like the schedule and cost would be also welcomed.
Besides, I have seen some remarks about a necessity to have permission for travelling in the area. Would any pernission be necessary for the trip to Pt. Samariapo and San Fernando de Atabapo? If yes, would it be possible to get the permit on a short notice in Pt. Ayacucho? Thanks.
Hello, I have heard that Varig flies from Tefe to Tabatinga... However I cant find the info anywhere!! varig doesnt even have the option on its website so im guessing they dont do that route anymore?
can someone please help me. i would like to get from tefe to tabatinga as quickly as possblle. are there any fast boats that go as opposed to the hammock ones that take ages??
id prefer to fly but that doesnt look to be an option...
thanks for your help!
