Isla Margarita

Has anyone ever been to Isla Maragarita. I Know it is island in Caribe and it's very cheap for shopping.

We spent 2 weeks there a few years ago and never did find any shopping.

As far as we're concerned this island is the pits. The beaches and snorkeling aren't as nice as the rest of the Caribbean,and a decent command of the Spanish language is a must.

We had heard so many marvelous things about it and we couldn't wait to go there. It was probably one of the biggest travel disappointments we have had.

I have a friend who honeymooned on Margarita - got a very cheap deal. She got what she paid for. It was a pretty bad trip!

I was Margarita about 7 or 8 years ago. Playa El Agua is an absolute wonderful beach. The shopping however was not cheap by any stretch of the imagination.

We visited ( albeit for just a day - it was a cruise ) in '96. Only saw the Capital Porlamar - people were very friendly. The cheapest shopping is to be found in the local markets. Picked up some "Genuine" ( ??? ) Calvin Klein jeans - ditto Raybans. I can speak a little Spanish so we got by OK. Not the most affluent of Carribean islands judging by what I saw.

We visited there 3 yrs ago for 2 weeks, stayed at the Diamond Dunes(since sold) and had a great time! You might wish to post this question in the Latin America forum, you'll get more responses.
