Venezuelan Minister for Tourism Ali Padrón announced on Thursday, August 25, that starting from January 3, 2023, Venezuela will resume receiving tourist cruises from Europe at the port of El Guamache in Margarita island.
The minister made this announcement during a working meeting on the Community and Youth Vacation Plan 2022 held in Falcón state. He highlighted that after a gap of 15 years, the country will once again receive cruise ships from Europe arriving at Margarita island in the state of Nueva Esparta. Padrón added that the first such cruise will be a German ship that will depart from Spain.
“The first cruise ship from Europe will come after 15 years… the siege created by the unilateral coercive measures that prevented the arrival of cruise ships from Europe for many years is broken,” Padrón declared. “This cruise is German but it leaves from Spain and will arrive at El Guamache Port in Margarita.”
