It's very difficult to find people other than afew staff that speak english. First off there are no direct flights to the island, u must fly into carracas first. Make sure you get there in daylight and take only official taxis. Don't change american money at the airport do it on the low at your hotel. Usually the guys at the resort tours desk will give you about eight hundred bolivar per hundred. Don't accept less than seven fifty. Carracas is an impoverished hell hole if you have to stay there before you get a connect flight to Margarita STAY IN YOUR ROOM TILL DAYLIGHT! Once you get to Margarita you can relax it's beautiful. The dunes is decent clean and well kept. The food is awful, request a room with a kitchen and take a taxi to the large super market across town. The evening shows are pretty spectacular, the staff is super friendly and so are the mosquitoes if you stand too near the bushes. Take the tours they're fun. Get beautiful pearl sets made by guys on the beach, take your time choosing they are there every Day. Pay no mind to the pesky peasant kids on the beache they are coached and beaten by their parents who they hustle for. Be prepared to see some awful plastic surgery walking around. Buy a swimmers life jacket, the water is beautiful but can be dangerous, see beautiful playa el agua and all the others they all have their personality. Shop the flea market. Eat the local food. Enjoy.
