Los Roques Safety
Los Roques is a safe, peaceful destination for you to visit. How to get there amidst the Venezuelan crisis?
One of the main concerns for travelers worldwide is how safe the place they are going to visit is. Naturally, they do not want to have bad surprises regarding their belongings and physical integrity.
So, should you worry about your trip to Los Roques, when so many people say Venezuela is not a safe destination?
You probably must have heard stories about the problems Venezuela has been facing due to huge economic and political crisis. The best advice is: Do not spend any time in Caracas! The crisis in Venezuela is concentrated mainly in larger cities, and the capital city is the epicenter of violence and lack of basic goods, such as food and electricity. Unfortunately, there are no flights to Los Roques that do not pass the Venezuelan capital.
The solution is: just make this flight connection in Caracas and then leave to Los Roques!
Since the archipelago is located in the Caribbean, where actually few people live, you have nothing to worry about! The whole archipelago is a national park consisting of more than 40 islands. The only two inhabited islands are Gran Roque, where the airport, shops and the inns are spread between sandy streets. Once in the paradise, fun and peace are guaranteed! Nature does its work there and makes the visit very worthwhile.
- In 2018 you can still visit Los Roques without any problem.
