The word "basin" refers to the portion of a valley from which water drains into the river, and then to the sea. The Amazon Basin is another way to refer to the Amazon River Valley in northern and central South America. The basin is located in the countries of Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela. It is not a closed basin, but flows into the Atlantic Ocean at the river's mouth.
What major river runs through Venezuela and forms a large delta where it empties into the Atlantic ocean?
It depends on whether you are referring to the Amazon Basin or the Amazon River. The Amazon Basin occupies sections of Brazil, Peru, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, Guyana, Suriname, and French Guiana. It is nowhere near Mexico. The Amazon River does not border any of these countries. Its path takes it through Brazil and Peru, and other rivers from Venezuela do flow into it, but it is nowhere near Mexico.
