Venezuela is a country of amazing natural beauty, from the snow-capped peaks of the Andes with the highest and longest cable car in the world to a steamy and fascinating Caribbean coastline. From the wildlife-rich savannahs where table-topped mountains called ‘tepuis’ rise vertically from the plains to an abundance of breathtaking waterfalls including the famous Angel Falls which at 979 m, is the world’s highest waterfall.
Simon Bolivar gave Venezuela its independence in 1821 from Spanish rule and subsequently gave his name to the local currency, the international airport, the main square in almost every town and village and a city that stands on the banks of the Orinoco. Oil wealth has bankrolled most of the country’s economic development.
Venezuela is a country of mixed races. About 70% of the population is a blend of European, Indian and African ancestry.
