WE also stopped at Isla Margarita. The port offers a lot of shops (where they don't bager you to shop) they are like little huts. They have a bar where food and drink are served with music. The beach is awesome and there is lots to do there. We were so glad we got off the ship and went to the beach. Of course, we shopped a little too. So if you just get off at the port its all available to you.
