Top Ten Must See Sites When Visiting Geneva Hospitality’s Caracola Beach and Spa Resort

Caracola Beach and Spa Resort, managed by Geneva Hospitality, is a luxury condominium resort located on the beachfront of the Caribbean on Isla Margarita. Here is a list of the “Top Ten Must See Sites” when visiting Caracola Beach and Spa Resort.

1. Playa El Agua- This is the longest, widest, and most popular beach on Isla Margarita. This also results in it being the busiest, but most serviced beach on the island where visitors can find many sport activities, concerts, bars, and restaurants.

2. Playa El Yague- This is one of the world’s best spots for wind and kite surfing whether you are a beginner or more advanced. If you are lucky, you will even catch expert windsurfers training for international competitions.

3. Isla Cubagua- This is one of the best places to go diving around the island. Divers will even have a chance to explore the wreck of a sunken ferry which makes for an excellent photo opportunity.

4. Los Roques- This is one of the best snorkeling locations in the Caribbean. This area contains around 150 islands that offer white sand beaches accompanied by crystal clear waters. This location also offers one of the best coral reefs in the entire world. A flight to Los Roques takes about an hour from Margarita Island, but it is well worth it.

5. Lagoon La Restinga- If you are in need of a break from the beaches, Lagoon La Restinga is one of the best national parks around. This park offers a lagoon with mangrove swamps and colorful flamingos. La Restinga is about an hour boat ride away from Isla Margarita but if you go in the morning you will see many different varieties of fish, dolphins and about 100 bird species.

6. Porlamar- This is the largest city on Isla Margarita and is the island’s center of commerce. To get the best prices on goods, shop on Boulevard Guevara. If you are looking for higher-end, more elegant stores visit the avenues of Santiago Marino and 4 de Mayo. Isla Margarita is a duty-free port which means that goods are declared exempt from tax.

7. Juan Griego- If you want to catch the best sunsets on Isla Margarita visit Juan Griego, which is famed for its spectacular sunsets.

8. La Asuncion- If you are interested in the history of this area visit La Asuncion, which is the capital of the state of Nueva Esparta. Here you can view the oldest church in the area, La Catedral de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción.

9. Castillo de San Carlos Borromeo-This is a 17th-century fort that once protected the town and harbor from foreign and pirate attacks. The fort's thick stone walls and bronze cannons still watch over the beach, harbor, and Caribbean Sea. The fort is open Monday through Saturday.

10. Senor Frogs- If you are looking for a great party visit Senor Frogs on Av. Bolivar in Porlamar. They also offer terrific Mexican food and are open for lunch and dinner before turning into a popular nightclub.
