Margarita and Mochima image

The island of Margarita, ringed by beaches, is a popular destination both for mass market packages and Venezuelans on holiday. While parts of the island have been spoilt by uncontrolled development and the beaches can be crowded, there are some pretty posadas (inns) which provide a friendly base for exploration.

To the east of Caracas, a short drive from Barcelona, is the Mochima National Park - a series of small, mostly uninhabited islands and promontaries with white sandy beaches, for excellent fishing, snorkelling and diving.
