The coast of Venezuela is characterized by white beaches, clear Caribbean water, historical cities dating back to the early 1500s and tourist-friendly attractions. Bordered by mountains rising to 2.000 m (6,500 ft) and tropical rainforest add to the charm.
Some spots not to miss on the Caribbean coast east of Caracas are:
Isla Margarita – a major tourist destination for sun worshippers worldwide with wide spans of palm-lined white beaches, clear water, and plenty of opportunity to take part in water sports like windsurfing, scuba diving, snorkelling.
Parque Nacional Los Roques – the perfect island retreat for anyone who enjoys snorkeling, fishing, windsurfing diving or just lounging on peaceful, remote islands in the beautiful Caribbean Sea. Los Roques can be a day-trip from Isla Margarita or Caracas, or an overnight stay.
Cumaná – a lovely little town with a quaint historical center.
