Venezuela has a diverse geography: beaches, plains, and mountains. The weather also varies very much from one place to another. Venezuela has wonderful beaches (playas), especially at the east (Playa Colorada), in the islands (Margarita, Coche) and in the central-west region (Morrocoy, Cata, and Choroní). In the Caribbean, north of Caracas, is located the Archipielago of Los Roques with its white sand beaches and its crystalline waters. One of the interesting regions in Venezuela is the Gran Sabana. Venezuela has also deserts and dunes. One of the most interesting trips you can make is to the Coro Dunes (Medanos de Coro). Venezuela has a rich and varied fauna. Its tropical birds (Toucans, flamingos, guacamayas); mammalians, reptiles (crocodiles or snakes), and fishes (attention snorkeling lovers) delight nature lovers. 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, and others.
