National Park
Tour through the various marshes connected to Laguna de la Restinga and get an intimate look at the abundant indigenous wildlife. Set out on the salt lagoon in a boat, or join a kayak group. The cleanliness of the water makes it especially easy to spot starfish, jellyfish, and other creatures below the surface. Pelicans frequent the area, and the tours can take you up close to them. As you pass through the mangrove forests, you will likely stop at a sandy beach for a chance to explore on land. At the end, several locals peddle their wares of jewelry and snacks. Make Laguna de la Restinga part of your personalized Margarita Island itinerary using our Margarita Island trip itinerary maker.

  • Highly recommended to go on this ride boat where you'll see the three varieties of mangroves as the red, black and white... Luckily we had a very educational trip because we had a very friendly driver who was pointing us varieties of vegetation, detailed us e indicated types of mangroves taking us in his gentle navigation through different channels. Caught seahorses and starfish posing them in our hands which obviously were returned to their natural habitat... don't miss it!
