Orinoco River: The Venezuelan Government operates modern twin Diesel steamers on the Orinoco, with comfortable cabins and adequate food and sleeping accommodations, on weekly schedules between Ciudad Bolivar and Puerto Ayacucho, at the beginning of the great rapids separating the lower Orinoco from the Upper River. This trip, which runs to between 5 and 6 days, permits one to see 600 miles of this virtually undeveloped river which is between 5 to 8 miles wide even after one has sailed more than a week above its mouth. The Middle Orinoco and the Venezuelan plains, Los Llanos, are famous for their cattle ranching and big-game hunting. If you have time, fly to Isla Margarita, less than 2 hours by air from Maiquetia airport, which is the principal source of oyster pearls in the whole of the Western Hemisphere.
