Located off the northeast coast of Venezuela. A popular vacation destination for both South Americans and Europeans. Shown in the popular latin music video “Una Vaina Loca” as well as on an episode of “Locked Up Abroad!” If you hit it during vacation time, there are a plethora of beautiful women that decide to stay and play here on Margarita…although less so now, given Venezuela’s economic woes.
Dry and sunny (24-37 °C).
Consume alcohol and go to the beach. Or, consume alcohol on the beach. Again, in moderation. Avoid getting too intoxicated and being pegged as an easy victim for robbery.
DATING IN ISLA MARGARITA
As with any tourist destination, things aren’t rocket science. However, getting a piece of it isn’t as easy as you’d hope. Most people travel to Margarita Island in a large group – often a large mixed group – so you’d better be a charming sob with a high social IQ if you don’t want to get eliminated by the competition. However, you’re still a novelty as far as tourists go, so yes, that will help you get laid in Margarita Island. By far, your best bet to hook up in Margarita Island is to day game your hotel or hostel or the beach. This will be easier if you are muscular, rich, and/or fluent in Spanish or Portuguese.

WOMEN IN ISLA MARGARITA
The quality of women in Isla Margarita is probably inflated a bit due to scantness of clothing, but who cares? Lots of Latinas in little clothing will never rank below a 7 in my mind. Hooking up Margarita island with a fine girl shouldn’t be too tough. Venezuelan women are some of the greatest on the continent and Isla Margarita is no exception. Just try to hit it during high season (around Christmas time or when Semana Santa falls…sometime in March/April)

RENT AN APARTMENT IN ISLA MARGARITA
Best bet for renting an apartment on Margarita Island is to go in with some roommates if you’re planning an extended stay. A 2 bedroom 2 bath rental apartment can be found for about $500. The best way to pay is in American dollars (cash, and you may get a heavy discount).
NIGHTLIFE IN ISLA MARGARITA
Most (if not all) of the nightlife in Margarita Island is located in the cities of Pampatar and Porlamar. Very typical of resort towns: streets lined with drunk people and unnecessarily-loud clubs. Avenida Bolviar hosts many bars and clubs that change names and ownership like you take a piss. Spontaneous day-drunk beach parties are certainly not unheard of, either. Overall nightlife on Margarita island gets a thumbs up.
I recommend: Hitting Avenida Bolivar and seeing what’s popular. Everyone is drunk and on vacation, so no particular bar is going to give you a competitive advantage for picking up over-tanned touristas on Margarita island. Not to mention, many once-popular bars have shut there doors. Just follow the crowd!

IS ISLA MARGARITA SAFE?
Reports of piracy off the coast, so be careful if you’re arriving on a yacht. Since 2010, petty crime and robberies have increased, so keep your eyes open and try not to get too drunk. With the dollarization of the country, tourism has increased somewhat going into 2020, and crime rates have reportedly decreased, but you still must remain vigilant.
Margarita Island is not really worth it unless you’re already in Venezuela; don’t go out of your way. A nice place, but many other vacation destinations in Latin America offer the same experience for better value. Also, Venezuela has descended into absolute chaos under the rule of Maduro, so you’re better off staying away from the entire country right now.
OVERALL RATING: 6.5/10
