    Porlamar is the biggest city of the island, it has malls, hotels, restaurants, etc... La Asuncion is the capital city of the state but is a small town, very quite, but it's not a city. There are some other places to stay like Juan Griego, north of the island, close to Playa el Agua and Playa Parguito, but not as big as Porlamar, and the area around Playa el Agua and Playa Parguito is very good too. Playa Parguito is the most popular beach of the island. It all depends on what are your plans. My email:
