Introduction to El Guamache, Isla Margarita
An intriguing cocktail that spices a Caribbean setting with a South American spirit.
The only port of the island, which sits off the coast of Venezuela, El Guamache is a very popular destination both with international tourists and people from the mainland. There are lots of palm-roofed shops in and around the harbour area, selling handicrafts, jewellery and souvenirs. There is also a number of duty-free shops.
Margarita is actually two islands joined by a sand-spit that goes into the La Restinga National Park. This area, to the west of the island, is very dry and is home to the yellow Margaritan Parrot. It’s one of two parks on the island, which also has a number of forts and churches from the Spanish colonial era.
