Venezuela - February 13th, 2011

The Gulf of Venezuela is a gulf of the Caribbean Sea bounded by the Venezuelan states of Zulia and Falcón and by Guajira Department, Colombia. A 54 km (34 mi) strait connects it with Maracaibo Lake to the south.

Sediments line the southern shores of the gulf and are particularly dense just west of the Médanos Isthmus (right edge), which connects Paraguaná Peninsula with the rest of Falcón State.
