I have a flight to Aruba August 13th- 25th but I plan on booking another flight to Venezuela and spending my time there. From what I saw, I can only fly into Valencia or Caracas from Aruba. My top priority is seeing Salto Angel and would like to see the Amazon as well. My question is what are my options for getting from Caracas (or Valencia) to Ciudad Bolivar and from Ciudad Bolivar to Puerto Ayacucho and then back to Caracas? It seems like a night bus would be the cheapest and most convenient but how safe are they and are there buses between each city I would like to visit?
Also if you have any advice on any good tours/guides to Salto Angel and the Amazon I would appreciate it!
