Rock paintings, San José de Guaviare

Rock paintings, Cerro Azul

The area consists of tropical, semi-evergreen rainforest merging into Los Llanos to the north and the Amazon rainforest all the way south. With its off-the-beaten-track location, poco tourists visiting, ancient indigenous wall paintings and magnificent flora and fauna, Guaviare makes for an adventurous and magical travel destination.

The region is characterized by water: mighty rivers, swimming holes, lakes, waterfalls and creeks can be found everywhere. All this water supports Guaviare’s impressive biodiversity. You will even find smaller versions of the brightly colored Caño Cristales river – only without the crowds. A visit to Tranquilandia and Pozos Naturales through June-November is therefore basically mandatory.

Hoatzin | San José de Guaviare

Guaviare has one principal town, the authentic and dusty capital San José del Guaviare, which is situated on the banks of the Guaviare river in the north. The main economic activities are cattle raising and farming. In order to have a true, day-and-night jungle experience, we will arrange a basic but beautiful ecolodge for you just outside San José. It forms the perfect base from which to discover all interesting, beautiful and nearly tourist-free spots that Guaviare has to offer.

Take for instance Cerro Azul, where you will be amazed by century old indigenous wall paintings, visit the beautiful Laguna Negra, abseil from the 27 meter high Las Delicias waterfall and swim in the crystal-clear Damas del Nare lake alongside some of the friendliest wild pink river dolphins you have ever seen.

Natural pools

All of those day trips will show you a wide array of wildlife and endemic plants. Be amazed by for instance exotic birds such as toucans, parrots and hummingbirds, various species of monkeys, the aforementioned pink dolphins, anteaters, caimans, lizards, iguanas and turtles.

Guaviare’s inhabitants consist of a vast amount of indigenous tribes, such as the Nukak, Tuscanos, Curripacos and Cubeo Indians. Due to the past armed conflict in the southern jungles of the department, many of them were displaced to the capital of San José and live in poverty in reservations around town. It is hard for most of them to adapt to modern-day lifestyle. Some moved to nearby jungles in order to recapture their cultural habits and traditional practices. Curious what those entail? The aforementioned ancient cave paintings offer a captivating look into their history.
