Porlamar Things to Do

  • by PooterB Written Mar 20, 2009

    We (2 couples from Canada) booked an 8 hour tour of the island through the internet with Cruisin' 'N Style for $60.00 US/couple with no deposit required. Upon getting to the island we called as requested to confirm our arrival and booking reservation. On the arranged date, at the arranged time were were met by a very friendly, English speaking couple at our resort. We toured the island for 8 hours in a very roomy, air-conditioned vehice going anywhere we wanted, stopping when we wanted and for as long as we wanted. We went to places on our "wish" list plus guide recommended sites.
    There are several so called "jeep" tours and for our purposes, would "NOT" recommend them. You travel rather cramped in open jeeps (no air-conditioning here) and stop and go with the convoy, no individual choice. While these tours typically tout booze and a meal included while Cruisin' "N Style doesn't, guess what? Booze is dirt cheap and a lunch the four of us stopped for with beer cost a grand total of $12.00. At the end of the 8 hours, we were taken back to our resort and tipped hansomly for an absolutely WONDERFUL experience.

    The drive up the "Copey" mountain - we reach the top, were an impresive view stands right in front of us. (North & South) The road is paved and in good conditions.
    Continuing to the west, to the Lagoon of La Restinga will lay next to us. Next lunch served at the west-end of Margarita, behind San Francisco Mountain, down by the beach. We move on to Playa Arenas (Sand Beach) for a relaxing hour. Very nice beaches - Drinks will be served all day......
