Margarita is a lovely island I have lived ther 12 years I'm from australia. At the moment i'm in Australia for cancer treatment as its free for me here. But I will be back in August. The only problem in Venezuela is the currency. You need to have dollars. But you need a bank in USA and use Zelly to go to supermarket. Plus you also need BS local currency.
Prices for food are cheaper than in Australia. Gasoline is a problem its rationed unless you pay in dollars. Buying houses and apartments is cheap. Parts for cars is expensive I buy mostly on Ebay. Medical treatment for serious illness is expensive. Some medicines are not available. Water supply is problematic if you have a house or apartment get supply once a month. so need big tanks. All the people are friendly need to be vitulent when your carrying phone in hand. But thats world wide problem.
You have many beaches all very safe. Also if you have a yacht good anchorage in Concord.
