Laguna de la Restinga, Margarita Island

(4.4/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • You should go early remains so close to the Centre of porlamar, you arrive you mounted on a boat, there are children that help you to climb, so don't need it to earn a tip, you walk through all the mangroves of the area, talking of natural wonders and a bit of history, and they let you on the beach... raisins all day , you can eat typical food of the region, at the agreed time you spend looking for, and return to the city

  • Think what there is best plans, only did the tour the the journey to 8,000 bolivars, not spent to the beach, that is worth 9,000, not went by theme of time then not can say. Here basically give you a walk through natural channels that have been formed by mangroves, draw you a couple of sea horses so you can see them and also a sea star! You see one another bird but nothing more!

  • Great to see this landscape and the sea star, traveling as a couple seemed excellent to enjoy that ride
