Beyond Ecotourism-where fascinating Venezuela is only a few keystrokes away


 

 

ECOLOGICAL TREASURE

 

 Los Roques Archipelago is without any doubt one of the most beautiful natural areas of Venezuela. Anchored to the north of the port of "La Guaira" (the nearest to Caracas), it shows us an unprecedented scenic harmony, because in this insular formation, the sky and the sea converge in a without end of harmonious tones of blue and greens that evoke a vision of what should have been for the settlers to arrive at these islands for the first time

The species in their habitat, and the man's little intervention in this beautiful and unequaled place, make of these islands and keys, the most beautiful coralline reef in the Caribbean Sea

The submarine landscape also offers continuous action to the diver, and diverse and multicolored speedy fishes can be seen when they cross among the pointed corals and among the undulant masses of marine algae.

Fortunately this ecosystem has not been invaded by the man, first for its isolation, and then for the ordinance of National Park settled down in date of August 8 1972 with the intention of: "to establish an appropriate zone of compatible uses with the nature and vulnerability of the ecosystems that it contains", what has guaranteed a judicious use of their natural resources inside a normative of protection of their enviroment.

This nature paradise of peace, anchored in the Caribbean, it is without a doubt memory of Corsairs that hid their crafts among the multiple islands, little islands and keys, and definitively to know it they are not enough just few days because their 50 islands, and more than 200 keys, offer a without end of possibilities to the tourist that wants to enjoy the nature. 

The National Park   

The Los Roques Archipelago National Park was created by presidential decree on the 8th of August, 1972. Since the middie of this century, the bounteousness of the waters of Los Roques had propitiated a growing fishing industry, especially in lobsters and the queen conch. This, together with the unorganized presence of visitors who carne in their own boats, have generated damages to the natural and scenic resources. As a consequence and seeking to safeguard national interests, the Government designated the entire archipelago a national park.


Los Roques Archipelago, located 70 miles North of Caracas, and one-hour flight from Margarita, is one of the biggest National Sea Parks in the Caribbean. It is conformed by 50 island and keys in a ring around a central lagoon with abundant mangroves and coral reefs. Amazing beaches, white sands, colored waters and a great variety of sea fauna. The area is protected and no new constructions are allowed. All accommodations for tourist are former fishermen houses refurbished and converted in nice and comfortable "Posadas" frequently attended by the owners in a familiar and personalized way

Visiting Los Roques Archipelago, is definitively what the experts call "The real Ecotourism"-Eco Challenge-, is a new form of making tourism. 
The Organization seeks to cover a hole in what refers to ecoturismo, innovating products and services that go beyond a habitual tourist package, this way a step will always be ahead. It is our goal that each passenger uses our philosophy of Eco Challenge (ecological-challenge) of use and I don't abuse and that it applies it daily. 
Our fundamental contribution is to contribute to preserve natural and rural spaces, being our strategy, to put in direct contact with the nature to the biggest number of people to achieve its sensitization. 
When finishing the day the tourist it will be very aware of the importance that contains the preservation of the natural spaces and our work will be rewarded when having created ecological conscience in a group of people that, surely, of there from now on will change its form to think and they will create in their our minds philosophy like a new form of life.

The species in their habitat, and the man's little intervention in this beautiful and unequaled place, make of these islands and keys, the most beautiful coralline reef in the Caribbean Sea 

The submarine landscape also offers continuous action to the diver, and diverse and multicolored speedy fishes can be seen when they cross among the pointed corals and among the undulant masses of marine algae.
