- Day 1: Caracas – Gran Roque
Early flight from Maiquetía (Caracas) or Porlamar to Los Roques National Park. Upon our arrival we will transfer by boat to a local key where we will enjoy the superb blue waters of this paradise archipelago. Our guide will take us snorkeling to a specially chosen spot where we will get our first good look at this astounding underwater world. We will see many different Caribbean fish and magical coral reefs.
We will have a delicious lunch on the key, and after a little relaxation time we will visit another of the scores of islets that comprise this archipelago. Here we will visit a traditional lobster farm, then enjoy the enticingly warm waters of this lovely, Edenic spot. Late in the afternoon we will return to Gran Roque where we will have dinner and overnight in a comfortable posada in the town. The above may be purchased as a day trip.
- Day 2: Dos Mosquises – Gran Roque – Caracas
After a hearty breakfast we will attempt a visit to Dos Mosquises Island, located to the south of the archipelago. The waters surrounding the island make for a delightful morning of snorkeling and diving, after which we will visit the Dos Mosquises Biological Station. Here, Fundación Los Roques has developed a Caribbean Turtle preservation program. During our visit we will learn about this fascinating project, and be able to see the facility where the turtles are bred.
Following lunch on Dos Mosquises we will take a little time to relax and enjoy the beach before returning to the airstrip in Gran Roque, for our return flight.
Please note that visiting Dos Mosquises depends upon special permission, which is granted based on the number of visitors at the Dos Mosquises Biological Station on any given day. Due to that and prevailing weather, we may reorganize our two-day itinerary slightly and offer a different, yet equally enjoyable program.
