Your vacations in Venezuela

Venezuela – officially, the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela (República Bolivariana de Venezuela) – is a tropical country on the northern coast of South America. It’s a continental mainland, with numerous islands located off its coastline in the Caribbean Sea.

Venezuela possesses recognized borders with Guyana to the east of the Essequibo river, Brazil to the south, and Colombia to the west. Trinidad and Tobago, Grenada, St. Lucia, Barbados, Curaçao, Bonaire, Aruba, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and the Leeward Antilles lie just north, off the Venezuelan coast.

Venezuela is known widely for its petroleum industry, the environmental diversity of its territory, and its natural features. The country is considered to be among the world's 18 most biologically-diverse countries, featuring an array of wildlife in a variety of protected habitats.
