Caribbean Tourism

Shopping - Isla de Margarita

Besides all duty-free shops, Del Bellorín, Cedeno, near Santiago Marino. Good for handicrafts. Artisans display crafts in the evening on 4 de Mayo. Good selection of jewellery at Sonia Gems, on Cedeno.


Many other places on the main street are overpriced. When purchasing jewellery, bargain hard, don’t pay by credit card (surcharges are imposed), get a detailed guarantee of the item. Designer clothes are cheap in many places, especially on Blvd Guevara, Blvd Gómez, Calles Igualdad and Velázquez; cosmetics and perfumes also good value.
