In a country where poor service is worn like a badge of honor (I know as I've lived here for almost 3 years), La Posada del Capitan Henry is the sole exception and then some. The accomodations are what you'd expect from a posada: fair pricing, comfortable, with few aminities; but with an added kick of down home hospitality. A...

Dear Captain Henry, I would like to express my gratitude for providing the homey tranquility and safety single women seek when traveling alone to the beautiful island of Margarita; it's such a quiet and safe place to be. My sister and I found at your Inn what were longing for: good service for a fair price, and a neat home...

We spent over a week in Posada in 2007 with three of my friends. It was the best place to stay and enjoy Margarita- quit, calm and tourist-free zone. We had long and nice conversations with Captain himself and appreciated being in this paradise.

It was the 1st time for me staying in a posada because I preferred hotels before. But now I changed my opinion. This place is unique and it is difficult to describe - you have to experience it. The service is better than a hotel one. After staying at Posada del Capitan we were for a week in a four...

There is a small village, La Guardia, next to the National Park. Untouched nature ! My place to stay was [---------------]. Only 8 rooms, but perfectly clean and the best sunsets you can...
