  • This is one of those places that must not fail to visit. In this lagoon you will find nature at its best, starfish by thousands and birds of all species. The boat ride through the corridors of mangroves is simply beautiful.

  • The best of Isla Margarita. Its herons, star of sea, beautiful vegetation. It is a very comprehensive plan. "" Within the lagoon you can reach "unique Coral Beach" around the world. At this point I found handicrafts more beautiful, including economic, and original pearls also have restaurant and good atmosphere.
