Los Roques Archipelago.

A scuba diving and marine adventure

Los Roques, Venezuela’s Caribbean National Park – The Margarita Island Alternative

Imagine this…

The sun filters through the warm blue-green waters. The only sound you hear is your own breathing.  From the depths, a large barracuda glides by, and then a squirrel fish and a red snapper. You swim deeper to get a better look at the dazzling colors of the beautiful yet fragile Cabecera de Los Roques barrier reef. You are taking a fantastic voyage into one of the world’s most spectacular locations for scuba diving and snorkeling. You are experiencing one of the few eco-diving destinations in the world today.

Making This Marine and Scuba Diving Adventure A Reality

Let Angel-Eco Tours introduce you to the natural glories of the Los Roques archipelago on one of its scuba diving adventure travel vacation package. Los Roques are the southernmost of the Caribbean islands and arguably the most spectacular. Boasting over 50 islands surrounding a huge lagoon, Los Roques feature pristine white sand beaches and a variety of wildlife, including iguanas, salamanders and black lizards. Located 70 miles north of Caracas, and a one-hour flight from Margarita Island, Los Roques archipelago is one of the biggest National Sea Parks in the Caribbean.

With our eco-alliance partners on Los Roques, Angel-Eco Tours can arrange a wide variety of activities, including:

  • Sailing
  • Scuba Diving
  • Snorkeling
  • Wind Surfing
  • Visits to lobster farms and the turtle preservation project in Does Mosquises

Or you can just relax on the beautiful deserted keys around Gran Roque.

Rich Marine Life

The rich variety of the marine species in the archipelago will impress any scuba diver. Los Roques’ coral reefs are exceptionally varied environments where fluctuations in temperature, small areas of rough and calm waters, and bright and shady areas with an abundance of nutrients are generated.

Some species of fish, such as the surgeon fish, angel fish and the spotfin butterfly fish, have adapted specially to the coral reef. On your Angel-Eco Tours’ scuba diving adventure at Los Roques, you will also encounter parrot fish, barracudas, nurse sharks, various species of rays and manta rays and enormous screens of plankton.

As you dive through the crystal blue water on your undersea scuba diving adventure, you will also see a complex underwater ecosystem of sea grasses. This ecosystem is the home of hundred of species of fish, as well as mollusks, turtles, snails and the queen conch.

A Vacation Destination for the Birds

The islands are also a bird watcher’s paradise. Species include masked, red-footed and brown boobies, sooty terns, brown noddies, laughing gulls and brown pelicans.

Of the 92 species of birds that have been recorded in the Los Roques archipelago, 50 migrate from North America to escape the harsh winter. Because of its location, Los Roques National Sea Park is ideal as a resting and feeding ground for the birds.
