The pristine National Park
Archipelago of Los Roques is located 150kms north of Caracas
and is the largest marine park in the Caribbean. In the
middle of a dazzling azure Caribbean ocean rises 50 islands,
each with virgin white beaches, turquoise lagoons and
marvelous coral reefs.
It is one of
the most beautiful natural areas of Venezuela.
Los Roques, an archipelago of small coral islands, offers
deserted white, sandy beaches, snorkeling and scuba diving along
numerous coral reefs, bird-watching and excellent fishing, including
some of the world’s finest bonefishing, sailing,
and kite-surfing to make this an ideal location
for the water-sports enthusiast and for those who like
soaking up the sun in paradise.
The archipelago of Los Roques is
comprised of 22.120 hectares of sea, strewn with 50 islands, islets and
reefs ringing a central lagoon of mangrove and coral.
Gran Roque is the only island with a village on it,
and it has a selection of small, brightly colored posadas on its sandy
streets, many of which offer both lodging and dining. Los Roques
Archipelago, declared a National Park in 1972, is made up of 350
islands and atolls of white sand beaches, an ever-peaceful sea,
year-round pleasant temperatures and waters so transparent and so rich
in tonalities that they take your breath away. With its numerous
protected cays and varied coral reefs, El Parque Nacional Archipielago
Los Roques is also one of the best locales in the world for scuba
diving, and there are several certified scuba diving
services/instructors from which to choose. For windsurfing
enthusiasts, the constant trade winds and the relatively shallow waters
of many of the cays offer unrivaled conditions to practice the sport.

on Los Roques
booked it all ourselves, no need for a tour operator, many options
and nice posadas there, most offer breakfast and dinner included in
price. not as expensive as we had heard. we flew in, walked and
talked to the posada managers then selected where to stay, what to
do. 4 days was good, could stay forever if you like blue lagoons,
white sands, no cars, no media, few tourists, and friendly local
people. this place was really comfortable. and all the surrounding
islands are beautiful as well. [more
