Puerto Cabello is a city on the north coast of Venezuela. It is located in Carabobo State about 75 km west of Caracas. The city is the home to the largest port in the country and is thus a vital cog in the country's vast oil industry. Its name translates to 'Port Hair' in English. Due to Puerto Cabello's location it was attacked by buccaneers and was a popular market for Dutch smugglers during the 17th century. Most of the contraband trade consisted of dealing in cacao with neighboring island Curaçao, colonized by the Dutch. Also Puerto Cabello was at that time under Dutch control.
