Add To Plan

Visit a remote village where the ways of traditional life are still practiced, and then visit a tropical garden with an elaborate labyrinth made of native plants.

Depart from the pier and settle in for a relaxing drive across Isla de Margarita, an island north of mainland Venezuela. Named by the Spanish for the pearls found offshore, mountainous Isla de Margarita is highly regarded for its beaches and natural beauty. Yet, retaining cultural traditions is just as important to the locals, as you will see in Pueblos de Margarita.

This recreated vintage Venezuelan village beautifully expresses traditional life through its hand-constructed adobe-style houses and shops topped with tile roofs. There is also a pleasant chapel surrounded by a fragrant garden. Wandering about the rustic setting, you will gain great insight into what life was like on the island in years past.

Continuing on, you will stop for photos at the fortress at La Galera, which was constructed in 1811. From this vantage point, the views of the mountains and sea are spectacular. It makes for a fine introduction to the natural beauty that awaits you at the Tropical Labyrinth.

Set in the heart of a lovely park, the labyrinth is a garden of primarily tall ficus planted in a maze-like design. Feel free to walk about, making your way through the convoluted paths, perhaps to the sound of parrots and peacocks squawking in the background. Following your visit, you will rejoin your coach for the one-hour drive back to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 2 1/4 hours of moderate walking with a few steps and some uneven surfaces to negotiate. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests. Those guests with mobility concerns are cautioned only to participate to the extent of their personal stamina and ability and may make arrangements with the guide to not participate in some of the walking portions of the tour. Light-weight clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; sunscreen; a bottle of water from the ship; and flat, comfortable walking shoes with a rubber sole are recommended.
