    I stayed in the Maremares Resort hotel. If you are from the U.S. you should not drink the local water. I did use the water to brush my teeth and I had a stomach irritation for 2 weeks. By the 3rd week my stomach must have gotten used to it.

    My favorite thing to do there is take a boat trip to the Mochima Islands. You can purchase a boat tour at Centro Comercial Plaza Mayor (mall). The little hut to buy the tickets is located next to the canal outside where all the restaurants are.

    My favorite restaurants are all near the Campo de Golf (Golf Course):
    1. Bambuda Bar - all different types of Asian and Italian food
    2. Shambar - Italian food and sushi
    I never found a good restaurant for typical Venezuelan food.

    Best shopping at Centro Comercial Plaza Mayor.

    I'm still not updating my VT page, so hopefully I'll have helpful info there in the near future.
