With a mix of Caribbean and Spanish traditions, the country presents a very interesting cultural hodgepodge in the eyes of the tourist. However, those who go to the region have the islands that make up Venezuelan territory as their main attraction. In recent years, the country has suffered from a serious political crisis that has generated hyperinflation, shortages of basic products, crime and censorship of the press. Like Ecuador, it is considered one of the 17 megadiverse nations on the planet. Some of its most touristic cities are Caracas, Los Roques, Margarita Island and Mérida.
