Los Roques, Venezuela

Hi all,

Is there a budget way of doing Los Roques? I am making a trip to Guyana but may have to pass through Caracas to get there. I was thinking of jumping on a flight over to do some bonefishing on my way back. Any idea how much flights are to the island and if there are any budget accommodations or is it all pretty much luxury set up?

Thanks,

Mike

The flights are only a couple hundred round trip but I understand you'd be limited to fishing the beaches and shorelines verses the famous pancake flats. However that's not a bad thing - the beaches have large bones that are catchable on your own. Since this is more of a fling than a dedicated trip why not if you have the time and means.

But what are accommodations like? Are there some cheap huts to sleep in or is everything more posh? Is camping an option?

I haven't been but you sure have my curiosity up on this archipelago now.

Here's a link that I believe represents loding on Los Roques, although there may be other cheap options.

The rooms rooms run $150 US and up...

Hi,

If your curiosity has been peaked, then check out this place I found.

http://www.explorepartners.com/posad...agua-clara.htm

The main page for this site says it is the perfect destination for bonefishermen as well as and nudists (not that that really interests me).

Thanks for the info,

Mike

Well then Mike,

I think your priorities may be a little skewed

Just kidding, now that lobster is something I would really like to gawk at on my plate.
