San Jose de Guaviare

The department Guaviare is a transition area between the los Llanos lowlands and the Amazon. Because of this the department has unique characteristics and a high nature and cultural diversity. Here you can experience the typical Los Llanos culture as well as the jungle. The Guaviare area is inhabitant by a vast amount of Indian tribes, some of the most famous are the 'Nukak', the 'Tucanos', the 'Curripacos' and the best known: the 'Cubeo'.

During this package we will stay in the Posadas Ecoturisticas 'Playa Guio', 20 minutes outside the village San Jose de Guaviare. Besides this being a very nice place to spend the night it is also the perfect place to experience the Guaviare jungle. The Posadas is a practice of sustainable and responsible tourism in harmony with nature. What is also nice to know is that the people that manage and work at the Posadas are people that have accepted the chance to change their work and life as they were part of the former coca industry of the region. In the direct surrounding of these Posadas and during the ecological walks you can see many different monkey and bird species.

Around San José de Guaviare there are many touristic destinations. The most well known destination can be found in the nature reserve 'la Lindosa'. There you can find 'Ciudad de Piedra', 'Ciudad Perdida', 'Puerta de Orión', 'Laguna Negra', 'Cascada las Delicias' and 'Los Pozos Naturales'. All these destinations are in the package that we made for 4 days/3 nights. Of course it is also possible to make a custom made program with different destinations and activities. It is also possible to choose for transport over land from Bogota to San José de Guaviare instead of flying.

A package to San José de Guaviare is combined perfectly well with La Macarena and a program with Caño Cristales

Important: To visit the area you are obligated to have a yellow fever vaccination and be able to proof this, so bring your vaccination card. In the rainy season there are more mosquitoes and it is recommendable to bring mosquito repellent. San José has a very basic tourism infrastructure, all programs that we offer to this area are for adventurers only.
