Welcome to Los Roques
Once we set foot on the ground, we paid the fee to enter the natural park -170 bolívares- and headed to the inn that we had booked through the pack agreed with the agency.
We had paid the usual pack offered by most tourist agencies in Venezuela. The price - wildly expensive - included the round trip flight, two full-board nights with excursions through the different islands and the three basic meals of the day. All for the whopping of 450 euros. In view of the fact that we could probably find something better, we decided to choose the return flight three days later and try our luck in the different inns of the islands so that the complete of so many days would not be so expensive.
Sincerely, I advise you to flee from the tourist agencies in Venezuela and try to make your trip for free by hiring flights and inns. It would be much cheaper and you will have more choice when it comes to finding an inn or regulating the dates of your trip.
In addition, excursions through the previously arranged islands of the archipelago are reduced to the nearest: Madriski and Franciski. If you want to go to other more emblematic places like Sarki, Cayo de Agua or Carenero you must pay separately. Before hiring any similar service with an agency, ask what it includes in detail.
We were installed in the Sea Dream inn. It is located a few minutes from the port of Gran Roque - although at the end of the day everything is close on this small island - and a woman with her daughters welcomed us warmly. The inn is simple but offers a nice taste in decoration. During the two nights we were at the inn we enjoyed good food and suffered from the usual problems of water and light restriction that frequently plague the Gran Roque.
