Venezuela is a country in northern South America. Possessing shorelines on the Caribbean Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, Venezuela borders Colombia to the west, Guyana to the east and Brazil to the south, and is situated on the major sea and air routes linking North and South America. The Los Testigos Islands are included in Venezuela’s federal dependencies, which are composed of 600 islands and smaller formations.
The Los Testigos islands are the most remote of the Venezuelan islands called "The Witnesses".

The Islands are all different with huge sand dunes, gorgeous beaches, lots of fish and lobsters.
