#1: CP LOCATION

(visited by Ricardo Kuhnle and IVAN GABALDON)

22-Jul-2007 -- A group of friends went to the Paraguana Peninsula to have a 3 day motorcycle trip. We traveled from Caracas and stayed in a beautiful "posada" called La Pancha near Adicora. On the next morning we planned to do a round trip around the peninsula and I planned to visit this confluence.

Because this confluence was already visited by Alfredo Remon, he gave us all the information I need it and no trouble appeared to get to the point of interest. We drove by a gravel road with our bikes and parked 300 meters away from N12W70, point from which Ivan and I walked into the cactuses and had to jump a small fence to get there while the rest of the gang waited for our return.

This particular area of the Paraguana peninsula most of the economical activity is base on goats raising and aloe vera plantations, despite that in the peninsula at no more that 45 km from CP it is located the two largest oil refinery in Venezuela with a combined processing capacity of about 900,000 barrels of oil per day and there is an industrial fishing port located near by. Tourism its also quite developed around Adicora due its strong wind during 365 days a year. The vegetation in Paraguana peninsula is basically dominated by cactus and tunas, typical in such arid environment with practically no rain all over the year.
