Pampatar, a quiet and beautiful town was founded in 1530 and has an Indian name that can be translated into ‘The Salt Town’, as it hosts a salt mine even nowadays. You can discover a lot of mystical and beautiful attractions in this charming town, and you will be impressed with the noble, old, colonial buildings. The Spanish settled here mostly thanks to the strategic position, the deep water and the quiet harbours, as well as thanks to the natural salt deposit. Yachts, ships and wood boats are anchored in the bay and form a picturesque landscape. There are 10 km to Porlamar. Miscellaneous: What is the present exchange rate? The official exchange course of Venezuela is 2150 Bolivars/ US$ 1 (October, 26th, 2006). You can bring Euro with you as well (better exchange rate). At the end of January 2003, the Government of Venezuela started an exchange rate control in order to protect the Bolivar. As a tourist, the best thing to do is to bring Euros with you. We also recommend credit cards, only that at the bank, you will receive money according to the official exchange rate, minus fees. We also recommend that you ask in the hotel or in the guest house where you can find the best exchange course. Most things on Margarita Island have convenient prices, as we belong to Venezuela, unlike the other Caribbean Island. Margarita is also a duty free zone.
