Venezuela, officially known as the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, is a continental mainland with a selection of islands situated off its coastline in the Caribbean Sea. A former Spanish colony which has been an independent republic since 1821, the destination is considered to be in the Top 20 for the most bio-diverse countries in the world, featuring diverse wildlife across a variety of protected habitats.

The Venezuelan flag consists of three colours; yellow, blue and red, in that order, with yellow standing for land wealth, blue for courage, and red for independence from Spain. The majority of Venezuelans live in the cities of the north, which include the capital Caracas, which is also the largest city, Maracaibo, Valencia, Maracay, Barquisimeto and Ciudad Guayana.

Interestingly, the country is well known for its success in beauty pageants, with Miss Venezuela one of the most popular big events. The destination has also acclaimed a number of titles including five Miss World, five Miss Universe and five Miss International.
