Why visit the Caribbean Coast & Islands
The Caribbean coast is a paradise of glorious white-sandy beaches, lush forested slopes, rich mangroves, marine national parks and idyllic isolated islands. There is something to suit all tastes along this coastline from the high-end hotels, water sports and heady nightlife of Isla Isla de Margarita to the unspoilt Robinson Crusoe ‘esque’ islands and accommodation of Los Roques National Park. Not to be forgotten are the wonders of Morrocoy National Park, a paradise for snorkelers, divers and bird watchers.
About the Caribbean Coast & Islands
Board your 20-seater plane, wave goodbye to the sprawl of Caracas and within 30 minutes you will be flying over an archipelago of white sand beaches bathed by turquoise water, magnificent coral reefs teeming with marine life and desert islands reached only by romantic sailing boats. Welcome to Los Roques National Park. Accommodation is basic (restricted by park regulations) and facilities limited, but this is small price to pay for the beauty and peace of the islands. If basic or tranquil is not your style, Isla de Margarita has beaches, nightlife and hotels to suit most tastes and style and you can still get away from the main buzz of the island.
