The above picture shows no sunrise or sunset :-)
What you see, is the outline of the Orinoco jungle and reflections of large blazes of an oil-rig far away.

   
 

On our flight home, for a few seconds, we could see our location in the rain ...
The arrow indicates the exact place, where we stayed the last days.

I hope, you enjoyed your virtual trip to the Orinoco Delta.

Cotorra is completely different to all tropical islands I ever have seen before..
Definitely this place is not recommendable for a tourist seeking beautiful beaches BUT the nature around is very unique.

Anyhow, for "normal" people it is almost impossible to get access to this lonely place.
