      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

      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.

      Toronto CDA to Margarita AND Manchester UK to Margarita Group Rates...

      by graememooney Online Now Apr 10, 2007 at 2:33 PM

      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.

    • La Galera holiday with two small children

      by rosjeal11 Online Now Apr 9, 2007 at 11:24 AM

      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

      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.

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.
