12 Things You Might Not Know About Venezuela

1. Venezuela’s name comes from the Italian word “Veneziola” that literally means “piccola Venezia” (little Venice). It was named so by the explorer Amerigo Vespucci who saw native stilt houses built in Lake Maracaibo, reminding him of Venice.

2. Lake Maracaibo which is connected to the Gulf of Venezuela at the northern end is the largest lake in South America and one of the oldest on earth (20-40 million years old).

3. In Venezuela summer is every day of the year because the country only has two weather seasons: the hot and dry season and the hot and wet season.

4. Venezuela is blessed by Mother Nature; it has oceans, mountains, rivers, deserts, grasslands, canyons and forests. The country is considered one of the seventeen megadiverse countries that contain most of earth’s species.

5. The world’s tallest uninterrupted waterfall, Angel Falls, is located in Venezuela. With a height of 3,212 feet it’s about 15 times taller than the Niagara Falls.
