Steem Women's Club Community Contest #6 Promite Your Favorite City || Margarita Island. Venezuela.

지난달

Hello ladies of this beautiful community, what a wonderful contest, where we will travel a lot, know traditions, cultures of each city.

Before knowing other cities in the world, first I want to know the ones in my country, I have already been to some of them: Cumana, Carúpano, Barcelona, Trujillo.

But now I am going to travel to Margarita Island, the Pearl of the Caribbean, in the State of Nueva Esparta, Venezuela. I haven't been there for years, it would be like going for the first time, but this time I would go with my children to get to know it.

One of the wonders of going to Margarita Island, is that we would do it in a big boat type Ferrys, we would take it from the city of Puerto La Cruz, in a trip on the high seas, which would last about 4 hours, if we take it from the city of Cumana, it lasts about three hours.

Traveling on the ferry is a wonderful sensation, I have already experienced it but I want to experience it again, feel the wind, the sun, hopefully see some dolphins swimming.

You can also go by plane, but to miss seeing and feeling by ferry is incomparable.

The main attraction that the island has, is the obligatory visit to the Virgin of the Valley, in her Basilica, which is in El Valle del Espiritu Santo. And if you go on September 8, which is the day of the Virgin, you will find a river of people, who go to venerate Vallita, as she is also called.

I have a commitment that I have to fulfill to go to the island of Margarita and thank the Virgin for her miracles, we ask her to end this global pandemic so I can fulfill my dream of going to her altar.

After visiting the Virgin, we would go to the beaches, the best beaches in Venezuela are in Margarita, Playa El Agua is one of them, where you can see the immensity of the sea, far far away, where at the end like the sky meets the sea, the white

and warm sands under your feet and the sea breeze, will make you come back.

Margarita has many historical sites, such as the Castle of Pampatar, part of the history of the island and Venezuela, also celebrate the festivities of the patron saint of the Cristo del Buen Viaje.

Here near the castle is another beach, where you can appreciate part of the rich gastronomy of Margarita, which is based more than anything else on fish: fried, salted, piscillo, stewed, in soup, eating it on the beach is the best.

The galerones are part of the typical music of the island, the polos, basket weaving, many women are dedicated to weaving baskets, hats, bags.

Part of its traditions is the sport, that is why it is home to the glorious Guaiqueries de Nueva Esparta, a professional basketball team that has won several championships in the country.

And just as we arrived by sea, on the ferry, so we returned again after spending a few wonderful days in the pearl of the Caribbean, Margarita Island.

When we arrive and go back, we do it from Punta de Piedras, which is a Passenger Ferry Terminal, also a wonderful place.
