Located in the Caribbean, just north of Venezuela, El Guamache serves as a port to the Isla de Margarita (Margarita Island). Originally lured to the island by the giant pearls off its coast, tourists now visit Margarita Island to enjoy its gorgeous beaches, friendly culture and exotic goods.
At the port there is a small booth with tour operators and information, as well as some vendors selling souvenirs. Cruise passengers can rent jet skis at the port, as well as paddle boats and banana boats. There are no attractions within walking distance of the port and a car or taxi will need to be rented to explore the island. Drinks and snacks are available from a number of bars.
From El Guamache, the nearest town is Porlamar. Corpotur, the state tourism office, is located in the adjoining town of Los Robles.
