Day 1: Caracas (Maiquetía, La Carlota or Higuerote) – Gran Roque
- Day 2: OPTIONAL TOUR AT EXTRA COST – Dos Mosquises
After a hearty breakfast we will attempt a visit to Dos Mosquises Island, located to the south of the archipelago about a one hour or so boat ride (check out the weather conditions before signing up). The waters surrounding the island make for a delightful morning of snorkeling and diving, after which we will visit the Dos Mosquises Biological Station.

During your 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 Gran Roque.
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. Our representatives will do their best to assist.
