The Los Roques islands are a federal dependency of Venezuela, consisting of about 350 islands, cay’s or islets. The most important island is Grand Roque, as it’s the only populated island in the group and has an airport suitable for small aircraft.
The archipelago itself is located about 80 miles (128 km) directly north of the port of La Guaira, and from there it’s a 40-minute flight to Grand Roque. Due to the influence of trade winds, Los Roques remains relatively dry (receiving very little rainfall throughout the year) and enjoys an average temperature of 80°F (27°C).
What makes Los Roques such a wonderful place is the huge extension of peaceful waters, the presence of lagoons, small islands and beaches with white sand (from coral origin), and crystalline waters with incredible colors.Los Roques currency is the Bolivar Fuerte, although American Dollars and Euros are widely accepted.
