female defaultSeen from the sky the archipelago is a rectangle that only has its main island populated in the upper right corner, which corresponds to the northeast, called Gran Roque. Where the local people are living there, including the accommodation in Hotel and lodges available to the visitors, there are three dive shops and now several supermarkets and other services.

The archipelago has 55 keys, 300 sand banks, shoals, and small patch reefs, also has atoll structure protected by two main reef barriers (South and East) to protect the open sea and the tide, creating an internal calm bay, clear waters and a fascinating biodiversity.

Turquoise waters, the solitude and privacy of its islands have attracted the attention of many tourists and boaters from all over the world who seek to know this fantastic place.

The highest elevation of the park is the island of Gran Roque, which owes its name. You can divide the portion of land into two sections: one east, flat and suitable for construction, where the runway and the people, and moreover the West, including the elevation of land that forms a steep cliff in the northwest side.

In terms of size, this park is one of the largest in the Caribbean Sea with about 221,120 hectares in total, offering a wide range of landscapes and natural attractions that make this a privileged place in the Caribbean.

La Lagunita

An ecxellent choice on Los Roques- Posada la Lagunita -

I spent eight days at Posada Lagunita and found it very enjoyable. Travellers to Los Roques are seeking something more special than the "service with a purchased smile" experience of a mega resort. Posada Lagunita offers seven nicely done rooms which offer tremendous value for the money. The food was amazing especially the dinners, which featured locally caught fish, cooked to perfection. There was never a shortage of wine and cold beer. The communal dinner table is great for conversation and meeting new friends from the world over. Breakfasts are tropical fruit, pancakes (they could have used some Canadian maple syrup) cold cuts, cheese and toasted country style bread, as well as endless coffee. They can fire up an espresso for you as well.

The excursions on offer are great and the closest ones to Franciski and Madriski were included. We had a fcouple of rainy days in October (a rarity) and this made excursions impossible, so the owner comped a day trip to Cayo de Agua, which was a tremendously nice thing to do. They give you a cooler with a pasta or seafood salad lunch, fruit, water, beer, pop for your excursions. Just help yourself to the fridge if you want to take along a few extra brewskis to Franciski. The day trips typically leave at 10 am and return at 5 but if you're going to the closer isles, they will pop back earlier and pick you up. They set you up for the day with a big umbrella, beach chair, towels, your cooler. The snorkelling is best at Franciski (sheltered cove, lots of good fish) and Madriski (big reef, though a bit of a swim to the fish).

The service is warm and hospitable and attentive. Andrea and his wife Claudia are great hosts and Chicho is the hardest working man in Los Roques, preparing the beverages for the happy hour at 730 pm lovely rooftop deck, or hustling people to and from the boat or the plane.

This is a great little place to go and if you come you will be justly rewarded with many pleasant travel memories.
