Contents

Vargas is the newest state in Venezuela. Named after Venezuela's first non-military president and doctor José María Vargas, the Estado Vargas is one of the 23 states (estados) into which Venezuela is divided. Located in the north of Venezuela it borders Estado Aragua to the west, estado Miranda to the east, the Caribbean Sea to the north and the Metropolitan District to the south. The main international airport for Caracas is located here on this narrow coastal region.

The state capital is La Guaira. At the end of 1999, the state suffered from massive flooding in which thousands were killed and nearly the entire state was displaced. Locals refer to the incident as "La Tragedia" (the tragedy).
