Choroni and Chuao

Choroni and Chuao stretch approximately 15 km along the glimmering turquoise coastline of the Caribbean Sea in Venezuela, with Choroni being a popular tourist attraction. Chuao remains a secluded fishing village reachable by boat from Choroni. Historically, both regions are known for growing some of the finest cocoa in the world. However, the area's greatest treasure is perhaps the hundreds of sea turtles that emerge every year to lay their eggs on the beaches. Unfortunately, these sea turtles are often disturbed by excited and curious tourists who end up preventing them from laying their eggs. Luckily, local conservation groups are working with the Venezuelan government to protect the area and ensure that future generations of both humans and sea turtles can enjoy a healthy ecosystem.
