Things to do in Margarita Island! (2/3)

... Continuing with our Things to do in Margarita Island´s list:

In the most popular beaches, you can enjoy a delicious seafood dishes and also can make a little shopping, as there are plenty of walking sellers from whom you can get: fresh oyster, massages, little braids in the hair, accessories, sun glasses, handcraft stuff, jet sky, banana boat, utralight flight, and other things... please notice we've said 'in the most popular ones', there are plenty others where you can enjoy Nature and just relax if you are not in the mood for shopping.

Tours to Coche Island. Either in an music-animated or in very quiet and relaxing catamaran, you can travel to the neighbor Coche Island... to enjoy a different day by its clean waters…

Tours to Cubagua Island. Also made by Catamarans very similar to the ones which go to Coche. Generally, It is included in the package: snorkeling equipment to see sealife in the sinked ship by the Island, also is included: drinks, lunch, chairs and sun umbrellas on the beach (same as Coche)..

Tour to Restinga Lagoon. A beautiful and different tour in a relaxing boat through mangroove channels which ends up in a huge beach...

Tour to the paradise Archipelago de los Roques. If you get this chance, do not throw it away. You will never regret to take it! It is impossible to describe the different blue shades in those wateres. There are very reasonable prices for this kind of tour, you just have to look for it ( or even better: ask us! hehe).

You can stay in hotels you will not feel like going out, with room rates that include all meals, national drinks and a lot of entertainment!

Or you can stay in accommodation much more cheaper.. There are a few where you can cook and save some money... luxury houses to rent... accommodation+breakfast...only accommodation... in other words, a wide variety...

At Yaque beach, very close to the Airport, you can find an ideal place for windsurfing and kitesurfing. In this place, It keeps winds of 25 knots constantly and 29º C temperature the whole year which makes this place one of the World´s top 5 places for these sports practice.

Hey, you like surf, so your beaches will be Guacuco, Parguito, El Agua, Puerto Cruz and Taguantar. aaaallright, there are no huuuge waves on those beaches like the ones from Bali!.... but you can get plenty fun there, and some challenging waves too.

Ok, you don't like beach with waves, so we invite you to visit beaches that looks like a real swimming pool such as Paraíso and  Punta Arenas..

oook, you don't like so much waves and neither so calm as a swimming pool, then you can visit  Playa Caribe, Zaragoza.. point here is that there are plenty beaches for every one....

 ... second post finishing here... next... Things to do in Margarita Island 3/3. To be Continued..
