This tour takes you to the main towns on Margarita Island.

In addition, you'll also visit Pampatar's artisan production center, where you can admire the island's pearls and typical craft work.
From there you'll continue through El Valle del Espiritu Santo, the spiritual capital and place of honor for the Virgen del Valle, patron saint of Margarita Island. Your excursion continues to the capital La Asunción, then on to Santa Rosa Castle, one of seven forts built during Spanish rule to defend the island against pirate attacks. You'll have the opportunity to walk around La Asunción’s cathedral, one of Venezuela’s most ancient.
