Flights

Getting around by air

Santa Elena's tiny airport is 7km southwest of town, off the road to the Brazilian border. At present there are no scheduled flights here, and even the irregular Cessna service from Canaima, a Godsend for travelers not wanting to do the punishingly long overland journey via Ciudad Guyana, is no longer running. Only chartered planes currently land here, so if you're in a group it's worth investigating prices.
