Here is a short list of frequently asked questions.
Q: What about hurricanes on Isla Margarita?
A: We are very happy to be out of the Hurricane belt. In recent history, we were only once very lightly brushed by tropical storm Brett, back in 1992. The hurricane left no damage. Otherwise, we have always been out of the path starting from western Africa to Florida and Cuba. We are located a couple of thousands kilometers away from that zone. There are also no volcanoes and the risk of earthquakes is very low. There is no fog or hail and the rain, when it does comes, seldom rains during the day and usually lasts only an hour. We receive, on average, more than 320 days a year of 8 hours of sun or more. For more details, please visit the Weather section.
