Humboldt route at Guacharo national park

Why go to go Guacharo national park for Humboldt trekking?

The Guaracho national park is the border of the federal state Sucre to Monagas and Alexander Humboldt already knew how to access the value of the beauty of this nature. Lovely green hills are a characteristic of this still unexplored countryside. A multitude of rivers and little water falls go through the scenery. On the fertile fields a multitude of tropical fruits is cultivated. The name Guaracho derives from the oilbirds that live in the biggest stalactite cavern of Southern America, the Cueva de Guacharo. The city Caprice is also called garden of the east. With orange plantations, strawberry fields and a large number of other fruits this place is a real oasis.
