Facing the east coast of Venezuela with white sand beaches, coral reefs and lagoons reflected in the deep blue of the Caribbean Sea, is Isla Margarita. This destination is well know in Europe and Canada as the alternative to the relative expensive islands of the northern Caribbean. The island is a DUTY FREE port and gasolina prices are 0.01$ CAN/liter or about 0.04$ CAN/gallon.
Margarita Island emerges out of the warm water in the Carribean sea with a surface of 934 sq. km (33 km by 67 km), 316 km of beautiful beaches, mountains, deserts, valleys and plains. With an average annual temperature at 26 ºC (80ºF) and together with Coche and Cubagua Islands, they form the State of Nueva Esparta. The islands have a similar geological construction and are located 37 km from the North East of Venezuela. If you are going to retire soon, we suggest explore the retirement menu on main menu.
In addition to that, everything is pretty cheap. Hotels are inexpensive by beach resort standards and restaurants are very affordable and secure. You can get a lunch in any of several restaurants in Porlamar or next to the beaches for $5 to $10.
