OUR GUIDE TO the weather in the Orinoco Delta
The lesser-known Orinoco Delta is one of the world’s great river systems, with a web of tributaries flowing into vast wetlands. The area teems with wildlife, including ocelots, tapirs, anteaters, howler monkeys, snakes and capybara. In the murky waters you may find manatees, alligators, piranhas and turtles. Keen birders can spot everything from the striking scarlet ibis to the endemic Orinoco goose. It rains throughout the year here, though the driest months are usually January - March. You can expect a hot and humid climate all the year round too, with temperatures averaging 26°C.
