Los Roques Cruises
Ninety-two miles due north of Caracas lies Venezuela's largest group of islands - the Los Roques archipelago. It comprises about 340 islets and reefs and constitutes one of the country's loveliest national parks. Its main attractions are long stretches of white sand beaches, miles of coral reef with crystal-clear water and many bird nesting sites. Small lizards, iguanas and cactus vegetation on some of the islands add to the atoll's variety.
Gran Roque is the main island, where flights arrive from mainland Venezuela near scattered fishing villages. The other islands are basically uninhabited, except for a few local fishermen who have settled in one of these isolated places.
The islands of Los Roques are the new spot on the map and on their way to becoming a favored destination for those who treasure unspoiled natural beauty. Unhurried and uncrowded, these tropical hideaways beckon to be discovered by those who wish to get away from it all.
There are no organized excursions available. Just come ashore and 'discover' this unspoiled Eden of Los Roques.
