I truly don't know how the straight community is toward the gay community in MI. All I know is that there is a gay community in Margarita because I know a DJ that does parties there and he told me the gay party scene is pretty good. You could contact people there and ask them directly. I recommend you check www.margaritagay.com (it's in spanish) and make some contacts. Knowing Venezuelans, they wil be more than happy to help you have a great time in MI.

I would say Margarita and Venezuela are much more gay tolerant than many of the other, more constervative, Catholic Caribbean islands.

I just suggest that open displays of affection in public places should be avoided. Remember that this country is 90 Catholic.

Just go and have a good time-there is actually a fairly large gay communtiy on Margarita.

As the previous poster (Nelven) said Venezuelans are more than happy to help you have a good time (straight or gay)

My partner (a Venezuelan) and I have been going to MI and CCS for ten years+. The changes that we've seen in this short time have been amazing. The 'discos' in CCS on our first trips were in multi-storey car parks and very much 'under cover'. In recent years it's really come on and gays are very visible all over the city. MI has always, in our opinion, been gay friendly and we continue to visit - without any hassle. Message me if you need any more info.
