Welcome to Playa El Agua

Playa El Agua

With 340 days of sunshine a year, Playa El Agua is one of Isla Margarita's most popular beaches and sees plenty of sun-worshipping tourists coating themselves in lotion to soak up the rays and catch a tan. The sprawling stretch of sugary white beach has been voted one of the top 10 in the Caribbean and is the most popular tourist development on the island. Thousands of visitors flock here each year to enjoy water sports such as wind surfing, scuba diving, snorkelling, jet skiing and parasailing.


Information & Facts

Language
Spanish is the official language of Venezuela.
Money

Venezuela's currency is the Bolivar Fuerte (VEF), which replaced the Bolivar (VEB) in January 2008. The revaluation means that Bs. 1,000 becomes Bs F 1. It is divided into 100 centimos. US dollars are the most favoured foreign currency so it is best to have cash and travellers cheques in US$. Foreign currency and cheques can be changed at bureau de change offices found in most larger cities and tourist destinations. Some banks (e.g. Banco Mercantil) will now buy US dollars for bolivares or sell bolivares against a foreign credit card; some major hotels will also swap US dollars for bolivares. Banks are usually open Monday to Friday. It is best to obtain local currency where possible before travelling, and bolivars should be exchanged before exiting Venezuela. There are ATMs in the cities (however some travellers have experienced problems using them), and most credit cards, including MasterCard/Eurocard, American Express and Visa, are accepted in major cities. Diners Club has more limited acceptance. Visitors are also warned that there is a serious problem with credit card fraud.
