Southern Caribbean

Southern Caribbean region travel guides

If you don't spend time on online Caribbean travel forums, then Southern Caribbean travel guides are a must-have if you plan to visit this part of the region. Southern Caribbean is that region of South American consisting of the nations that border the Caribbean Sea – Colombia and Venezuela.

Due to the region’s closeness to the equator, its climate is very tropical, which of course makes it a popular destination for those who want beaches and sand in their vacation itinerary.

Venezuela and Colombia

From the Caribbean coast, the bulk of Venezuela rises instantly and green like the bulging muscles bursting through a comic hero’s shirt. To the Spaniards, everything would have seemed wild and yet to be controlled. From world’s highest uninterrupted cataract, the Rio Churun, to the arching bridge spanning Lake Maracaibo, much of the interior of Venezuela is still to be settled, even today.

In 1533, the Spanish founded a city that would become known as the Queen of the Indies. Yet, even without the added attraction of its colonial heritage, Colombia’s Cartagena is in the perfect position in the Caribbean Sea as to make it an attractive tourist destination.

Below are some top Southern Caribbean travel guides you may find useful as you travel to the Southern parts of the Caribbean.
