Venezuela is 90% catholic, so our Spring Break really is always the Holy Week! This year as almost every year we went to Margarita Island with the whole family! The girls had a blast, woke up early and went to bed late at night. We went kayaking and paddle boarding, went out to eat, and stayed in and cooked fresh fish! We are as tan as we could possibly be, hearts content, sisterhood empowered, cousins are better friends, grandparents are happy and parents are tired! Me?? well I left my muse in Margarita! So here are some pics!
To the west of Margarita Island you will see this kind of scenery, more golden and arid! This is Playa Caribe!
To the east the sand is whiter and the waters are bluer... vegetation is greener, more tropical! This is Pampatar, we went paddle boarding here early in the morning!
To the west the beaches are less intervened, in fact most of them are national parks, so you don´t see a lot of constructions or people. It is beautiful, amazing... it fuels your senses! East and west of the island are connected by a long stretch of sand and swamps called La Restinga! We went on a kayaking adventure. I don´t have any pictures of the trip itself because we couldn´t take our cameras with us, but you can see the landscape before we got there.
To actually get to La Restinga you have to go off the main road and on to a dirt road
Our kayaking crew!
After kayaking we walked to the beach... I think no words are needed here! This is the longest beach in Venezuela, is 26 kms long! The sand is rough, full of sea shells, the water is warm and clear... here you see no one, but yourself... beautiful, magical!
And this is our house... where the birds sing, the girls giggle all day, hammocks are always cradling someone... and were family has been lived!
Found this pictures of the girls about 8 years ago,,,
Hope you enjoyed my little tour of Margarita Island in Venezuela. Maybe one day you´ll come..and we´ll be glad to have you!
