The Caribbean Islands are in Venezuela.

Venezuela has more coastline and off shore Islands than any other destination in all of the Caribbean. Venezuela remains the last unspoiled part of the Caribbean, maintaining its authentic beauty and idiosyncrasy. Just to mention a few islands: Los Roques, Las Aves, Tortuga, Margarita.

Regions[edit]

Cities[edit]

  • Mochima, a small fishing village
  • Puerto La Cruz
  • Cumaná is a market town further east of Puerto de la Cruz and Mochima and there is plenty to do there for the day.

Other destinations[edit]

Understand[edit]

The north Venezuelan coast is spectacular. Accommodation can be quite hard to find (as at 1997, may have developed somewhat now) but there are areas to camp if needed.

Get in[edit]

Islands can be easily reached by frequent small boats from Mochima, some were deserted in 1997 with more being "commercialised" with beach services such as restaurants.

One of the best ways to see the southernmost Caribbean islands or surrounding South American islands is via a cruise.

Get around[edit]

By boat[edit]
