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.

Hi there - we visited isla margarita last year on p&o oceana, we docked at el guamache and had a fantastic day there, the beach and bathing is really nice, have a look on google earth and you can actually see were you will probably be docking.

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.

By Josephine Wright

Josephine Wright's blog

I’m finally back I apologize profusely to all my customers who thought I was only going to be off for a week and must admit so did I. I have had a small operation on my shoulder that turned out to be a little bit more painful than I thought it would be but now I’m back and raring to go, So to pick up where I left off, I did promise some more details on Independence of the Seas from when I was on board and the next bit is going to be all about that. So what did we do while we were ...
