  • If you want to climb to the lighthouse or the cross, it is necessary to wear suitable footwear... fact that we did not have in mind... Anyway we got. The view from the other side of the Cay is very good because it is a rocky canyon... and you can see everything all the key because the point is more high

  • That Lighthouse has something magical like everything el gran roque that leave you longing so deep. Anyone going to Venezuela must visit Los roques and take a walk on that lighthouse. We've brought in a lot of tourists and one day with a stone I also hacked my name inside the front wall lighthouse ... I'm going to miss you a lot ... bye Los roques

  • Relatively easy climb up there it's no big deal, but yields wonderful photos when the village and nature. Not to mention that was the setting of the Sun most beautiful I've ever seen in my life! Worth and best, you don't pay anything!
