Jakera Lodge is located alongside the beautiful beach of Playa Colorada in the heart of the Mochima National Park. Our palm fringed Caribbean base is amongst a procession of sandy beaches from where we explore the myriad of deserted offshore islands by kayak whilst interacting with dolphins. Snorkelling, fishing and diving opportunities are excellent.
The nearest airport is BARCELONA a 45 minute flight from Caracas with lots of daily flights servicing the nearby city Puerto La Cruz - we can book this flight for you and offer free airport transfers for those staying with us 5 weeks or longer.
Spanish classes are held daily and Jakera Lodge is our 'staging post' for expeditions to the Orinoco Delta, Gran Sabana and other exotic destinations around the country.
The Lodge has been developed over a number of years and the main accommodation and recreational space features a magnificent 'Chawata' (in the style of a Warao Indian commune). Students have a choice of sleeping in specially designed sleeping hammocks (recommended as it is hot here!) or in beds.
This is a stunning location and a stunning traditional styled lodge with many open communal areas set up well maintained tropical gardens. It has a 12 metre high climbing wall and is a front line property to the beach.
