National Park

Turuépano

 

* Ubication: Sucre State

* Location

In the southeastern side of the state, towards the coast of the gulf of Paria.

* How to get there

By air or land to Carupano. Then by road via Yaguaraparo or Guaique. From there by river to the park.

* Characteristics

It is located in the western part of the golf of Paria, occupying mainly the island of Turuépano, between the channel with the same name, and Boca Grande. They are delta plains with marine influence, characterized by mangroves, channels and canals. The main inhabitant of the park is the manatee, and it was created as a reserve to preserve the ecosystem and try to save the few specimens which still live in the waters of the gulf.

* Vegetation

The typical vegetation of flood marsh. There are mangroves in the channels which help sustain the soil.

* Fauna

There is no detailed inventory, but it is rich in avian fauna, specially aquatic birds, and many fish. The endangered manatee still survives in these waters.

* Recomendations

The same as for any national park. Neither penetrate into the park alone, nor navigate in its waters without a knowledgeable guide. Bring sunblock lotion, hat or cap.

* Facilities

None in the park. In the vicinity, in Hato Río de Agua, Playa Medina, Playa Pui-puy, Güiria or Carúpano, there are several places with comfortable lodging.

* Climate

Temperatures range between 18° C. and 28° C. Warm and humid.

* Surface

72.600 ha.
