On Punta de Mangle. The port is confusingly called El Puerto El Guamache - confusing cos Gaumache is also a town on neighbouring little island of Coche, so if you check with Google Maps, type in the full name, not just Guamache. For more info click back to the Answers page, & in the blue box type Margarita into the "keywords". Have a good one, Chris.

Thanks everyone for your help. We went to Margarita about 5 years ago and wondered if it would be a different place to last time. We should have been going to Curacas, but Princess have just changed it to Isla Margarita. It is the second time this has happened to us.

Intriguing. Apparently Ocean Village have also switched away from Caracas. Margarita is on their schedule anyway, apparently they've switched from Caracas to Martinique. Maybe people-power - there have been complaints about unsuitability of La Guaira/Caracas. Maybe grief with their fuel suppliers -Venezuela is regarded as cheapest for refuelling, but of course Isla Margarita is also Venezuela. Maybe its some other reason to do with costs. Shame if you've already been to I/Margarita, but I suspect most would prefer it to Caracas. Chris.

Well what a week it’s been with the collapse of Monarch, it has sent shock waves through the travel industry and here at www.CRUISE.co.uk our team have been working hard to ensure that our cruise customers have been looked after and that it has had a minimal effect on their cruise booking.I have been so sad and upset for all those employees waking up last week to find their job had gone…just like that! I have been in that situation before, a good few years ago now but I remember how h...
