I've heard that Princess has not been calling at La Guaira lately, yet the port is still on many itineraries. Has anyone been to La Guaira lately on a cruise, or should I just expect to be re-routed to Isla Margarita?
Princess stopped going to La Guierra because of safety issues, I think. We were on Golden in April and loved the stop in Isla Margarita, wished it was a longer stop. We went to a gorgeous beach on the party bus and had a blast! You can buy beautiful pearls there, think there is a glass factory outlet, also.
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.
