Los Roques

  • Los Roques is an archipelago located in the Caribbean Sea, north of Venezuela. It consists of a group of islands, cays and sandbanks, which extend over 200,000 hectares of coral reefs and crystal clear waters. It was declared a National Park in 1972 and a Natural World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999.

  • Los Roques is a very popular tourist destination due to its natural beauty and the great variety of activities that can be practiced there, such as diving, sport fishing, windsurfing, kitesurfing and snorkeling. The archipelago has more than 300 species of coral and a great variety of tropical fish, such as groupers, snappers and barracudas. It is also possible to see sea turtles, dolphins and whales during the migration season.   

  • The beaches of Los Roques are another of its main attractions. Dos Mosquises beach, Francisqui beach, Madrisqui beach and Cayo de Agua beach stand out, the latter considered one of the most beautiful in Venezuela and the Caribbean. You can also hike along nature trails and visit the lighthouses and small fishing villages found on some of the islands. 

  • Los Roques is a privileged place for ecological tourism and for those seeking an experience in contact with nature. Due to its ecological importance and the fragility of its ecosystems, there are rules and restrictions regarding access and use of its resources, which must be respected in order to guarantee its long-term preservation.
