Laguna La Restinga
Margarita Island, Venezuela

Margarita Island / Isla Margarita is Laguna La Restinga.
Located just before the bridge
that goes to Peninsula Macanao
this is a large lagoon filled with mangroves,
oysters, sea horses, fish and many birds.
You can hire a boat for either a basic
30 minute tour or a 60 minute tour
that includes many areas just recently
The longer tour is well worth the extra time.
Their is a long beach with restaurants that you can visit.
One suggestion is after the tour go out
to Punta Arenas and have lunch
at one of the small restaurants out there.
Here are the latest prices

Our boat driver was extremely informative and
He showed us live seahorses and explained that it is
the male seahorse
that has the babies (true).
