Arassari Trek Adventure Camp
Welcome to "la Acequia", a short 55 Km from Barinas along the main road to San Cristóbal. The district capital "Pedraza also Ciudad Bolivia" self-proclaimed itself as the capital of Venezuelan rivers.
" Pedraza - La Capital de los Ríos de Venezuela".
The Andean foothills offer a very privileged climate of 25 to 35 celsius daily - nights are slightly fresher and very nice. The vicinity of the highest mountains (5000 meters) and on the other side the endless plains of "los llanos" make the landscapes and variety of vegetations very attractive. Wild tropical forest, endless grass savannahs, small hills with palm trees and snow covered Andean peaks in the background.
Our Arassari Trek Adventure camp is situated at 3 Km along the road to Caño Grande. Coming from Barinas one passes the metal bridge over the Acequia river and just before the police checkpoint turns right and drives up aprox. 10 min./ 3 km of dirt road (in very good conditions). After passing the third concrete creek passage, on the first short downhill drive you will see a black water tank with our company logo (the sun of Bum Bum) in red and yellow. Enter and park your car on the hill.
The camp offers peace, nature, sun, water and many options to keep yourself active. It counts with a restaurant for 50 to 60 persons, camping zone, 4 cabañas/ chalets with beds and space to sling up a hammock if you prefer so. The camp counts with 8 showers and 8 bathrooms, the first cabana has 2 matrimonial rooms plus 2 extra beds, the second, third and fourth cabana are multiple dorms with a capacity for 7 to 10 persons, the natural swimming pool down at the Acequia river is a great place to take a swim and is a fantastic kayaking and inflatable boats play- and learn ground. For the sportsman there is excellent mountain biking terrain all around...we also have some bikes to rent right at the spot. All around the campground there is cultivations of tea, fruit trees and vegetables. Soon we'll have our Ping Pong tables and beach volley ball installed too. For the rainy days we have family games, cards and chess games to play indoor.
