Isla Margarita, Venezuela 🇻🇪 Gringo’s Guide
Everything you MUST know about this Caribbean paradise...
Editor’s Note: This is a guest post from a Venezuelan man who has worked in the import/export industry in Venezuela for years, speaks great English, and has been around the whole country.
Even if you don’t know much about Venezuela, you still may have heard of the popular beach destination of Isla Margarita — aka Margarita Island.
Margarita is the largest island in Venezuela — 950 square kilometers or 590 square miles — and is also the most popular tourism destination in the country. Hundreds of thousands visit the island each year and it remains a sought-after vacation spot for international tourists.
You could say that Margarita is the “Cancun of Venezuela” in some ways.
It’s a place that is dependent on tourism, and therefore it makes every effort to accommodate tourists, whether they’re coming from the US or anywhere else.
The island has a handful of sites and scenes. If you’re seeking a summer refuge with many beaches, this is the best place for you in Venezuela.

The weather in Margarita is HOT.
We’re looking at high summer temperatures every single day.
Unsurprisingly, the weather on the island is perfect for the beach, pool parties, tanning and all other water-related activities. Every establishment on the island is equipped with air conditioning (all malls, shops, hotels, restaurants, and apartments). If you can tolerate a little bit of warm weather, you will be fine here. However, if you prefer to experience all four distinct seasons, this destination won’t be ideal.
There is a rainy season that lasts for a few months of the year. That said, it still doesn’t rain much here compared to the rest of the country.
