Villavicencio, Yopal and the Orinoco Region
This agricultural region, formed by the departments of Meta, Arauca, Casanare and Vichara, features beautiful landscapes and a rich and diversed flora and fauna.
This vast grassy plain spreads in the northwest of South America, between Colombia and Venezuela. The term comes from the Spanish “llanos” (“plains”) and refers to the particular savannah type plant formation of this geographical region. The region has large areas of swamps and savannah, which are suitable for cattle breeding. They are also a place for intensive agriculture.
The vast region of the Llanos is known for the exceptional site of Caño Cristales, also called “The most beautiful river in the world”. Open from June to November, the seaweed phenomenon that occurs there gives the river magnificent pinkish-red tones.
The Llanos are also very famous for its hundreds of species of wild animals and birds. On foot, on horseback or in a 4×4, it is easy to see.
This beautiful and large region of Colombia will delight adventure, ecotourism and ornithology lovers.
