Margarita island Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
The capital of the island La Asuncion is a sleepy colonial town complete with narrow cobblestone streets a 17th-century cathedral and a Spanish fortress (El Castillo de Santa Rosa). It is a daytrip every beach bum makes more than once during their visit.
Among the natural attractions of the island are its beaches, mangrove swamps, lagoons. The best beach is found at El Agua on the east coast. The north has some of the island’s most spectacular scenery.
Food is very inexpensive here. It seems as if it just gotten more expensive to live in the States. A family of 5 can more than live off of a week of groceries here for about $74.00 roughly.
