*[[Ciudad Guayana]] - Dominated by heavy industry, it is Venezuela´s most organized city and the main gateway to the Orinoco Delta and the Gran Sabana. It is locally still known as either Puerto Ordaz or San Félix.

You can go and be face to face with this natural wonder on a boat called "lanchas"and, if you are brave enough, take a dip.
