Campamento Parakaupa
Reviewed 1 May 2010

We spent 5 nights at Parakaupa. Parakaupa is beautiful: pleasant rooms, some of them quite big and with a nice waterfall view. The rooms are comfy and some have AC; bathrooms are elegant and sparkly clean; the food is PLENTY and realy good. What amazed me was the service. They really tried to make our stay as pleasant as possible. The waiter (Rodrigo) was attentive, careful and very pleasant (incredible service for the middle of nowhere!), the guide (Gonzalo) was always available, helpful and well informed.

Their tours (altough expensive) were worth every cent. I strongly recommend the day tour on the boat to the base of Angel Falls (starting at the dawn, swam at the base of the waterfall, campfire and barbecued chicken 4 lunch, incredible views of the tepuys plus mild rafting due to the low waters!). The Cessna day tour to Cueva Kavac is fantastic if the weather is good, so the pilot can fly over Angel Falls and through the canyons (adrenaline!).

We stayed at Parakaupa following a 5 night river trip from Kavak to Angel Falls staying in hammocks. We had two rooms, one or us and a triple for the three teenagers on the ground floor, no views other than across pretty gardens. Basic accommodation, ceilings fans, loud TV in the bar restaurant. The food was fairly basic but adequate. Each room had a hammock or two on the patio to relax in. A 5 minute walk to the airport, and local shops which comprised of a Bank, food/gift shop, Arty shop with local artesans gifts, An 8 minute walk to the Canaima beach with views of the falls. In general a nice place to clean up and spend journey recovery time. Would not want to spend more than a night or two. The staff were excellent in terms of getting everyone to their flights at the correct time.

We spent two nights at the Campamento Parakaupa at the end of a Venezuelan tour, flying up to Canaima from Santa Elena de Uairen.
What a wonderful setting for the lodgings! Just a short way from the Canaima Lagoon and its waterfalls and a short distance from the Canaima Airstrip.
We had a very basic but comfortable room with our own hammock strung outside. Meals were taken in the restaurant and were plentiful and good.
There are lovely tropical gardens and at night the sky was completely covered with stars, so clear was the atmosphere and so far from civilisation.
During our stay we took a flight over Angel Falls and various tepuis and also a boat trip on the the Canaima Lagoon to Sapo Falls. There we clambered down to the falls and took a heart-stopping walk along a narrow slippery ledge behind the waterfall. Not for the faint-hearted!
A really wonderful experience!

There are a few different places to stay but this looked like the best from the outside.
The food was excellent and plentiful. The rooms are spacious with some hot water. From the upstairs balcolny there are spectacular views across the lagoon to Hacha Falls. Sapo Falls are a quick boat trip and 20 minute walk away. Angel Falls is 3 hours by boat in October. Our guide (who came with the lodge) was lovely. I would recommend a visit at this time of year as there are hardly any other tourists to spoil your view of the falls but there is still a lot of water as it is the end of the wet season. Also, during the high season (July and August) you do not stay over at the falls which was the highlight of our trip. The different lodges in Canaima own different camps by the falls which only they can use. Parakaupa's is directly under the falls (about an hours walk). There is another camp on the other side of the river facing the falls. All the other lodges camps are futher away.
