Val Verde is a country in Central America. Val Verde borders on Guatemala. In 1987, Val Verde was chosen as a hunting ground by a Predator hoping to exploit the ongoing guerilla war there. This led it into conflict with several teams of elite American special forces engaged with the guerillas, one of which was led by Major Alan "Dutch" Schaefer.
- Val Verde translates as "Green Valley".
- Val Verde is an entirely fictional country originally created for the Arnold Schwarzenegger film Commando, to avoid any possible diplomatic disputes from using real Central American country in the movie. It was subsequently re-used, perhaps as something of an inside joke, in Predator.
- The country went on to feature in several other films and TV series, including Supercarrier, Die Hard 2 and Adventure Inc..
