: Posada choice Los Roques ?

01-06-2008, 12:52 PM

Looking to book a trip to Los Roques this March,with 60 Posadas to choose from Im struggling to pick one.

Anyone have any recomendations?

Also wondering if we should do the all enclusive option or B&B,have never really liked being tied to an evening meal at the same place every night.However I read that there isnt much choice for eating out in Gran Roque?

Hi Colin,
Whats your budget? I guess it really depends on that.
I can recommend a real low end one, but you get what you pay for. We were 4 young bums there, and basically just needed a bed.
Its rather expensive to eat out, so we chose the "all-inclusive" package, which mean breakfast and dinner.
The food wasn't anything special at, actually rather boring (fish with rise, fish with potatoes, fish with pasta...). Again I believe you get what you pay for.

You should look forward, LR is such a nice place :)

Idealy I would be looking at $130 per day maximum.

Has anyone heard any more about the plane that went missing down there recently? Think it was in the news last week.

Apparently a twin engine plane from Transavian went down about 25 miles away from Gran Roques on Jan 4.
As far as I am aware it has not been found yet.

Apparently this airline was checked by the FAA last year (2007) was was certified as being OK.

Tragic with that plane crash :frown: I feel sorry for the passengers and thier families.

Colin, we gave around 50 usd per day per person, sleeping 4 bums in the same room. If Im going there again with a larger budget, I would probably look into something else. But again, it fulfilled our needs and we didnt exceed our budget:)
Name is "Roquelusa"... A quick google search will bring you to their site.
Are you going there by yourself?

Pete, wish you a nice trip down there at the end of the month.
