 Los Roques
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, kayaking, windsurfing, 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.

Trip Report on Los Roques
 "we 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.
