Catatumbo, southern Lake Maracaibo
Lois and Don Porter

A day or two after our return from a magnificent trip to Los Llanos, our friend Michael who was our companion in Los Llanos convinced us to join him in another trip, this one to the Catatumbo region at the southern end of Lake Maracaibo. We were accompanied by Volkar, another guide from the Jaguar agency. We saw some lovely areas, including a walk in the cloud forest, several beautiful waterfalls, a relaxing lunch stop at a remote hot springs, and of course a night in a house-on-water a few hundred yards offshore in Lake Maracaibo. Lots of wildlife, mostly birds, but also freshwater dolphins and howler monkeys.
