We are going to Margarita this December for our honeymoon. I wondered if anyone would be able to help - we are hoping to go to Los Roques for a couple of nights and dive there - but I can't find any informaiton on flights from Porlemar to Los Roques, anyone help? We also want to dive from Margarita, perhaps Los Frailles or other local sights - can anyone reccommend a good dive school? We also want to do a trip to Angel Falls - any tips for who to book with? Finally - what is it like to drive on Margarita? Is it easy to hire a car - can they generally be hired anywhere or just through the airport?
Look forward to any help from anyone!! Thanks, Amy
Are prices posted in V Fuertes & US dollars? or will i have to figure it out. also does the sambil mall take credit cards?

Hubby and I are flying out to Margarita on Sunday (our second Caribbean trip so know to expect a slightly lower standard than Europe perhaps!) However, we have heard such mixed reviews on the Dunes hotel that we are now totally unsure if it will be absolutely apalling or stunning! Has anyone been there recently - woul dlove to hear from you Many thanks LJ1
This will my first trip to the Isle and would appreciate feedback on the party places, beaches, sights to see, etc. I will be there for a week and would enjoy a running buddy(ies). I will certainly most my findings for all to benefit from on my return.
Why this august there isn't any tourist in playa el agua? why in jennuary there was many tourist? what's had happened during the past month of the 2007? thank you for your indications.
I'm planning a trip but I don't even know how to get there. Do i fly to venezuela or the actual island itself? If i fly to the island does anyone know of airlines because the popular delta lists no such location.
Can anyone please recommend and give me contact details for a good property lawyer and a respectable and well established developer for Isla Margarita.

I'm in Margarita Island now, and unfortunately the apartment we rented isn't in a good neighborhood. I need a number of a local taxi, so I can have them pick me up at my door, rather than trying to find one in the ghetto.
If you have any number of either a particular driver or a taxi company it would be most appreciated.
I'm looking to book a group to go to Margarita Island in Feb/08. I just visited there this Feb and have about 30 people that would be going next year. The only game in town is Air Transat direct to Porlamar, and I'm being quoted1300 pp for the Palm Beach Hotel. I paid less than1000 (yes it was last minute), but there must be a way to get the cost down without waiting for last minute deals. It's for a wedding and I don't think the bride would be too cool to wait for those deals. HEHE
We also have guests coming from Manchester, so information on that would be great too. I was trying to find a direct flight from Manchester UK, but I guess they haven't been posted for next year.
Any suggestions welcome. Cheers.
we are thinking of planning a two week holiday to isla Margarita with our two children (aged 2 and 3) next january. we have found a private villa in la Galera (Casa Karina) which looks lovely but can find very little info. about the area.
1) Does anyone know anything about La galera? I understand it's a fairly small fishing village close to Juan Griego but is the beach there OK? I've seen that jet skis are rented on it - obviously with 2 little ones we don't want to be constantly dodging them.
2) Is there any good snorkelling close to this area or do you have to take a trip out to the island Los frailes?
3) Is the water colder around Margarita thyan other Caribbean islands?
4) If we stay in la galera is it fairly easy to get to other parts of the island or are we putting oursleves out on a limb?
5) we are into snorkelling, watching fishermen working, quiet(ish) or local bars (as opposed to hotel entertainment) and my husband likes surfing. We also want a beach which is safe and easy with two toddlers.(Not many requirements then!!) if anyone has anywhere they can suggest other than la galera we'd be really grateful!
Thanks ever so much
i am planning to go to isla margarita with a friend. any places you can recommend for nightlife? as we are two guys I don't want to end up in an isolated all-inclusive-place but somewhere near a town or city with nightclubs and bars. would that be in Porlamar?
thanks for any information you can provide!
Hello all fellow travellers,
Has anyone any information about rock climbing or bouldering in Isla de Margarita (or place where to ask)? I have found all kinds of other outdoor activities but there seems to be no reference to climbing. I can not believe that there is no such places on the island.
three guys from los angeles are heading over there. so far we cant find a place to stay so we might crash on the beach at playa el agua. if you have a place we could stay (of course we'll pay) then please email me. we'll be surfing and hanging out at the beach.
Can anyone tell of any companies that sell bolivars online? I have heard that there are 'good' companies that give 'excellent' exchange rates but I'm unable to find any, despite searching for hours!
We are a couple from Poland (yes, long way). We have read a guide book on Venezuela and fallen in love with Isla de Margarita. Now we are looking for some quiet beaches your island to spend our honeymoon there. We like white sand, warm turquish water, beutiful nature and as little people as possible. Would you recommend something?
I am a Norwegian girl, who is going to Isla Margarita november/december 2006 for two weeks with my daughter, who is 2 years old. Is there anyone who has stayed in Isla Flats, who can give me any info on how their stay was? Also if you're going to travel to Isla Margarita in the same period as me, maybe it could be fun to have someone to meet up with...
I appreciate all answers!
I am travelling alone with my daughter for 2 weeks to Isla Margarita in november/december, and was wondering if anyone who has been there could tell me a little bit about the crime there. What kind of crime is most common there, and is it safe enough for me and my daughter to travel around the island by ourselves? We are going to live in an apartment by Playa el Agua.
I appreciate all answers. Thank you.
I'll be coming to Margarita in November on holiday and to see if perhaps it's a place I'd like to move to. Can anyone offer some recommendations on an "economical" place to stay in Playa el Agua for a couple of weeks, preferably very close to the beach?
Hi everyone off 2 playa caribe never done south america what are the power points;whats the night life like?Any bars 2 check out.cheers Andy
I´m travelling to Isla Margarita/Playa el Agua in november. Are there any local tour operators arranging excursions (one or two days) to Canaima national park? Do you have to pre-book and what are the prices?
Very grateful for your answers!Thanks!

I'm having trouble finding out how to fly from the U.S. to this island. Any help would be appreciated.
