Venezuela yours... A country you will love: Overview

Welcome to this overview of Venezuela Yours. We hope you´ll enjoy it.

Houses over the water (Palafitos)

Maybe you have wondered where the name of Venezuela comes from. In the picture to the left, you can see houses over the water, in the Sinamaica lagoon (Zulia state), close to Maracaibo. When the first explorers arrived, those houses reminded them the city of Venice. That is why they called the region "Little Venice", which in Spanish would be Venezuela.

Venezuela has a diverse geography: Beaches, plains, mountains. The weather also varies very much from one place to another. There is something for each taste. Have a look at what we are presenting you and then select what you want to see in greater detail.

One of the most interesting regions in Venezuela is, with no doubts, the Gran Sabana. Located in the southeast - Bolivar State - this region has flat top mountains called "Tepuy", from which start spectacular water fall like the one shown in this picture. It's the Angel Fall, the highest in the world, with a height of around 3000 ft.

The highest point in Venezuela is the "Pico Bolivar", with an altitude of 5002 meters above the sea level. The good news is that you can get very close to it with a cable car that can take you, in one hour, from the city of Merida to the "Pico Espejo".

Venezuela has also deserts and dunes. One of the most interesting trips you can make is to the Coro Dunes (Medanos de Coro). Next to the highway from Coro to Punto fijo, you can slide from the top of these sand hills.

Natural resources

Natural resources (Pearls)

Venezuela is a country with many natural resources. In addition to oil, the major resource in Venezuela, there is gold, bauxite, iron, coal, hydroelectric resources, or pearls, like the ones we show and that some people say gave the name to Margarita Island (margarita is pearl in Latin).


Venezuela has one of the biggest oil reserves in the world. It's production is today just below 3 million barrels per day (most of it coming from Maracaibo lake, see picture) and there are plans to increase production above 5 million barrels per day in 10 years
