What better destination than a Caribbean island for your next vacation? Margarita Island has just about every aquatic activity you could possibly think of. Just to name a few, you can enjoy kayaking, wind surfing, snorkeling, jet skiing, kite boarding, surfing and heaps more.

An international flight from Miami to Caracas is around 3 hours duration while a domestic flight from Caracas to the island is less than an hour. The island is located just off Venezuela´s coastline and to the east of the islands of Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao. Once you get yourself to Caracas, simply take a connecting flight to the island.
Being one of the popular Caribbean vacation islands for tourists from both Europe and the US, Margarita caters for all walks of life.

Known as a Caribbean island paradise, Margarita Island is surrounded by more than fifty beautiful, tropical beaches. During your Margarita Island vacation you can hire an umbrella with chairs, order food & beverages (including alcoholic drinks) and even have the restaurant guys serve your meal beachside! When you decide to cool off, simply slip into the incredible Caribbean Sea and bask in the amazing water temperatures.
Due to Venezuela´s weak currency (when compared to the US dollar), Margarita Island just may be the best Caribbean island for shopping. The island has some high quality shopping malls with a wide range of stores offering different products and services. For most foreign tourists the exchange rate is incredible IF you pay in cash. To obtain local currency you must first exchange your US dollars or Euros (see my currency page for important information). Best Caribbean island? As far as your dollar goes, yes!
