Re: Los Roques, Venezuela

I agree that Los Roques is one of the best places in the Caribbean and felt very safe the whole time we were there.
However we also place Las Avies and the maze of reefs that surround it at the top of the list for places not to miss in the Caribbean.
Of course these places are not for everyone with their isolation.
Maybe that is what makes them so nice :-)
Enjoy your adventure.

Re: Los Roques, Venezuela

Out of curiosity, under what flag you sail (Brazil?) and how would you describe the treatment of foreigners depending on the nationality of the crew/vessel?
Marvelous photos, I can only imagine the actual beauty.
Thanks for sharing!

Hi, and thanks for yr comments. Yes, Onda Boa is a Brazilian flagged vessel... I have to admit that Brazil is in vogue nowadays... So, yes it is usualy on a positive tone.
Now, our mentality (crew) is always an open one, visting a new country, courtesy, respectful etc and so we are doing fine. Eventhough in some countries the oficials try to give you a hard time, able to speak some words in their language, and a smile goes far...

Take care,
Pieter
