Dos Mosquices and Cayo de Agua

Dos Mosquices and Cayo de Agua are considered the far away islands; they are about one hour by boat from Gran Roque. As the landscape is beautiful, I did not notice the time pass by. The first stop was Dos Mosquices where we visited “their Tamar”, a center for research and turtle preservation. The biologists told us about the turtles in the tanks, the species we can find in the archipelago and about the preservation work they develop.

After, our stop was Cayo de Agua, considered by many the most beautiful of the archipelago (see Carlos Quintana interview). The place is actually beautiful, the paradise. There is two islands linked by thin tripe of white sand and the sea is a bluish green gradient. The day was diving, walking on the sand until the lighthouse and sleeping under the shade. Everything one deserves on vacation. The place radiated tranquility, peace, and silence. It is impossible not to go back reinvigorated after a day around there.

El Morrito – dive site in Los Roques

El Morrito is an incredible dive site in Los Roques. It is calm, very colorful, lots of little fishes, and what I like the most: a wreck. I recommend this dive site.
See the videos of the wreck.

Noronsquí, Crasquí and Rabusquí

My first tour to the islands in Los Roques was to Crasquí. I had been in the island before on a stop from a dive. What impressed me a lot on the site was a “sea of conch sells”. Yes, in a part of the beach I could not see the sand, large conch shells, beautiful and impressive at the same time, covered the ground. It was worth it the trip only to see this surreal place.

On the way to Craqui, we stopped in Noronsqui to enjoy the beach, I stay some time observing the small lizards, they were ugly and had some strange feet. In Crasquí it was snorkel, lie on the sand, sleep and read…

The best part of the trip, in my humble opinion, was the stop in Rabusqui on the way back to Gran Roque. It was a sea of sea stars; I had never seen something like that. White sand, transparent water and dozens of sea stars spread all over the ground, it was like seeing a sky drawn underwater. Even though it was late afternoon and sunlight not so strong, it was impacting...

Gran Roque, Los Roques

The great motivation to visit Los Roques was scuba diving, so, I spent my first day planning what I would like to do on the 8 days I had in that tropical paradise. The place, I can say, is one of the most beautiful I had been. The sea is incredible, clean beach, transparent water, fisherman, birds, beautiful landscape, great small hotels and interesting people. Everything was very simple and “not simple” at the same time. Almost everybody stay in Gran Roque, the island from where you can depart to dive trips and get boats do visit other islands in the archipelago.

On my first days in Los Roques I was diving. Later I decided to have a “vacation”, not to plan anything, it matched the place… I would wake up at any given time, go to the port and get a boat to wherever they were going. This way, little by little I could go to great part of the islands in Los Roques (Francisquí, Madrisquí, Noronsquí, Crasquí, Rabusquí, Dos Mosquices, Cayo de Agua)...
