If you are looking for Cancun style nightlife then MI is not the place to go. The beaches on the other hand are great offer great variety. There are beaches which are more picturesque (Playa Guacuco, Playa Manzanillo), beaches with bars & restaurants (Playa El Agua, Playa Caribe), and many secluded beaches all around the island.

For a real secluded beach check out these coordinate on Google Earth. 11°10'35.50"N 63°52'51.96"W

Based on your ages I'm thinking you might like Playa El Yaque. It one of the top spots in the world for windsurfing but you don't have to be a windsurfer to enjoy this beach. The crowd tends to be younger here due to the windsurfing activities and there are bars, restaurants, hotels and posadas. Posadas are the venezuelan version of a Bed & Breakfast.

Here is a page I set up with descriptions and pictures of some of the more prominent beaches on Margarita.

Playa El Yaque is very close the the airport and has its own nightlife but you would also have the option of going to Porlamar which is a 20 minute cab ride away.

Other options to consider is to stay in the Playa El Agua area. The nightlife at Playa El Agua is not what is used to be but Porlamar or Juan Griego are not too far away.

In Juan Griego there is Hotel Patrick. Its a hostel with an irish style pub complete with pool table and hammocks. It may not be party central but they do occasionally have live music. It could also be used as a base to get to other places around the island.

There are several nearby islands which are great to visit by boat.

Los Frailles is a decent place to visit if you like snorkelling.

Isla Coche can make for a great day trip by catamaran. I've been on several of these trips and recommend the Yemaya. Its a big cat with lots of space. They pull up to the beautiful white beaches of Isla Coche and drop the staircase located at the front. The sand is white and fine, the water calm and warm and the sun is hot!

For an amazing island experience you may want to consider Los Roques. Unfortunately you must fly there which makes it a pricier trip than other. While it may be pricey it can be worth it especially if staying for a couple of nights.

If you need help arranging your stay and/or flights to Isla Margarita contact Turpial Travel (www.turpialtravel.com). They've organized excellent trips for me while traveling through Venezuela. Remember that in Venezuela there is a black market and you are better off using a local tour operator.
