Roraima Tepui: Guacharo Hotel and Window, Canaima National Park (Venezuela)
Venezuela

Overnight at the highest of the Tepuys (especially steep plateau with vertical walls and very flat tops) Mount Roraima is a rather complicated task, the constant and unpredictable rainfall, low temperatures and strong breezes combine to make this a difficult task. Fortunately, at the top there are some sort of caves in the rocks that because their utility to protect from the elements, have been called "Hoteles" (Hotels).

Of these hotels, one of the most popular is the "Hotel Guácharo" located in the southeastern part of Tepui is very close to a window overlooking the base camp and Kukenán Tepuy, also the "Cueva del Guacharo" (Guacharo's Cave) is in a few meters range.

More About South America

South America makes up the southern half of the Americas and a large part of Latin America. It's home to the world's longest mountain range, biggest waterfall and largest river -- even these mammoths pale in comparison to the stunning variety of life forms thriving in the rainforest. To the northwest, off the coast of Ecuador, lie the Galapagos Islands, which are unique for hosting species not found anywhere else on earth. These were the subject of study for Charles Darwin in his theory of evolution, which he himself said will require proof in every single case. The main languages in South America are Spanish and Portugese, which basically tells you which European countries colonized the place. The South American wars of independence took place over two decades in the early 19th century, led by Simon Bolivar of Venezuela and Jose san Martin of Argentina. Following liberation from Portugal and Spain, South America took off into its own development, capitalizing on the rich deposits of oil, gold, copper, silver and tango musicians. Brazil is the largest country in South America and home to one of the world's best parties, Carnaval. Have you heard of samba music? How about bossa nova? Maybe dancing for three days straight? I can't say enough good things about South America. All the world's continents have amazing secrets and treasures laying in wait for your discovery, but in South America... just have a look at our pictures while you're waiting for online confirmation of your plane tickets to hit your inbox.Text by Steve Smith.
