San José de Guanipa (Spanish pronunciation: [saŋ xoˈse ðe ɣwaˈnipa]), also known as El Tigrito, is a city in the state of Anzoátegui, Venezuela. It is the capital of San José de Guanipa Municipality. Officially founded in 1910, it was previously a settlement of the Kali'na people.[1]

Like the Guanipa River, the city is named for the Kali'na cacique Guanipa.
