Great snorkling

This is a little island where just one fisherman family live. There are a lot of piles of beautiful shells that you unfortunately can't take home with you. The snorkel is great!

It is a simple, basic place where a few families live warm waters, you can eat fresh fish and seafood rich (the catch of the day), the beaches are white sand.

One of the many wonderful beaches in los roques. This beach has some friendly dogs playing near the water and keeping company to us. The water is clear and the sand is white. Also found some lobsters traps while snorkeling.

A beautiful beach with a great sandbar at the point. There are several families of fishermen who live on this island, and they may have fish or lobsters to sell.

Nice, although not the best island. The main reason to go is the small restaurant called Marilu. You have to book in advance, fish and service are great even if the place is very simple and basic.

Carenero is a very nice, relax and small island... here you can spend a while, no more than 1 hour, but you have to go and meet this amazing place...
