Aerial views

To reach Los Roques, if you don't have your own yacht (or a friend with one), you can take commercial flights from Caracas, Porlamar (Margarita) or Maracaibo. The arrival from the air is spectacular, thanks to the variety of blues than you can see (See aerial views).


You will arrive in the island of Gran Roque from where you can take a catamaran or a fisher boat to reach other islands, like Francisquí o Crasquí.

The archipelago has more than 50 islands. The most important, El Gran Roque (The great rock) is the only one populated and is where the airport is located. The other important islands are Francisqui, Nordisqui, Madrisqui y Crasqui. (See Map). However, don't limit yourself to those keys...


Cayo de Agua (Water Key)

We strongly recommend a visit to "Cayo de Agua", on the west side of the archipelago, about an hour trip from Gran Roque, but is one of the most beautiful keys.

Los Roques a paradise of crystalline waters and white sand

What makes Los Roques such a wonderful place is the huge extension of peaceful waters, the presence of lagoons, keys (small islands) and beaches with white sand (from coral origin), and crystalline waters with incredible colors.

As Los Roques is a national park, there are some rules for any construction. You will not find luxury hotels, but only a big assortment of inns, ranging from very simple to others more sofisticated that take pride in their gastronomy
