Morrocoy National Park is a protected area located in the north-central coast of Venezuela. It was established in 1974 and covers an area of approximately 32,090 hectares (79,280 acres), including a significant portion of the Gulf of Venezuela. The park is home to a diverse range of habitats, including mangrove swamps, lagoons, coral reefs, and cays.

The park is known for its beautiful beaches, clear blue waters, and abundant marine life. The beaches in the park are a popular destination for tourists and locals alike and offer a range of activities, including swimming, sunbathing, and snorkeling. The coral reefs around the cays are also a popular destination for scuba diving.

The park is home to a variety of wildlife, including iguanas, monkeys, and numerous bird species. The mangrove swamps are an important breeding ground for many fish and shellfish species, making it an important area for commercial fishing.

The park is easily accessible by road from Caracas and other major cities in Venezuela. There are also several small towns and fishing villages in the area that offer accommodation and other amenities for visitors.
