Rio Caura – in the middle of the rain forest

Why should you go to Rio Caura?

The Rio Caura covers a distance of 723 km until its opening to the Orinoco and it is a black water river and therefore no annoying mosquitos can be found there. It flows through 30 000 km ² of untouched rainforest area where Indians are living like they were living back then and nature is to the greatest possible extend still untouched.
