    Coastal Cordillera is a mountain range that stretches along the Caribbean coast of Venezuela. It is a part of the Caribbean Andes and consists of two parallel mountain ranges, stretching from east to west and separated by a valley that includes Lake Valencia. The northern range of the Coastal Cordillera is called the Serrania del Litoral while its southern or inland range called the Serrania del Interior. The maximum height of the mountains in the Coastal Cordillera does not exceed 3000 meters so mountain slopes are usually covered with green vegetation. The highest peak in the Coastal Cordillera is Pico Naiguata (2765 meters), located in the Serrania del Litoral. The Coastal Cordillera fall into the Gulf of Paria, which separates the mainland from the island part, and reappear again, forming the northern coast of the Trinidad and Tobago.
