Overview
More
Dos Mosquises Islands (The Turtle hatching islands). These are approximately an hour and a half from Gran Roque depending on the boat used and the weather (with a sailboat allow 4 hours, and it is better to rent a sailboat (live aboard) for 2 or more days). Of these two keys Dos Mosquises Norte and Dos Mosquises Sur, the latter is the most interesting because the Los Roques Scientific Foundation, a park station and an archaeological whereabouts as well as a magnificent beach are all there. From the seventies the foundation has been carrying on investigation and environmental education; its associates promoted the creation of the national park and their investigations range form the biology of coralline reef communities to fishing, anthropology and archaeology in the archipelago. There is a landing strip on the island for small aircrafts, laboratories, service areas, accommodation and a room for the raising of turtles which usually awaken much interest among visitors.
