Los Rogues Venezuela

Has anyone cruised to Los Roques Venezuela? Thinking of stopping there in late Spring, early summer next year on our way from Grenada to the ABC's and ultimately Panama. Looks like a great destination, but not sure how weather secure the anchorages are. We draw 6 ft. and I haven't looked at any detailed charts yet. Any information would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Los Roches used to be a great stop-over and I draw 8 ft but Venezuela is so unstable I would no longer consider stopping there.

Not sure if pangas from the mainland can make it out there, kinda far. But like moondancer said, politically its a very dangerous destination. And getting worse. A great pity as its a magnificent destination with hundreds of islands and reefs.

Thank you both. I was hoping that Los Roques was far enough off shore that it would be safe, but I'll heed your advice.
