There are very few flights to [[Santa Elena de Uairén]]. [[Rutaca_Airlines|Rutaca]] is the only airline that services the town with any regularity from Ciudad Bolívar and Puerto Ordaz. You should contact the airline at the Ciudad Bolívar Airport (58-285) 632-4465 / 632-8426 to find out more information about the flights. They should direct you with information on how to book. As of May 2016 all commercial service to Santa Elena was suspended - the runway is in very bad condition. The only flights in or out were charter services to mines.
Night buses go to Santa Elena from [[Ciudad Bolivar]], [[Puerto Ordaz]], Maturin and Puerto la Cruz in Venezuela and from Boa Vista [[Boa Vista]] in Brazil. There are also buses that go direct from Caracas Terminal de Oriente (22 hour trip). Bus companies that do the route are Expresos Los Llanos, Expreso Occidente, and a state owned company with red busses. From [[Boa Vista]] in Brazil there is a daily 7am bus to Pacaraima, the Brazilian border town 12km south of Santa Elena. From the border (after getting your entry and exit stamps) a shared taxi should cost not much more than $0.50.
If you take a bus please understand that the buses are cold and drivers refuse to raise the temperature. Bus temperatures average around 7ºC (45ºF).
The Boa Vista route is the best connection for those coming from anywhere in [[Brazil]]. There are flights from Manaus and Brasilia, and overnight and day buses from Manaus that take 10-12hours.
