Seasons?

As we are in a tropical country, in Los Roques, is possible to dive all year round, so, even if it's winter in any of the temperate zones, let's say here is always summer ;) that's why you can visit us whenever you want to enjoy a good diving in this caribbean spot. Now, if you can choose the month, we can suggest you october, that is the best one because the sea is even quieter than usual and the water is also warmer.

 

Weather

Water temperature is normally between 26 and 28 ºC so, recommended suits are between 1.5 mm and 4 mm depending on your sensibility.

 

Peak seasons

We also suggest you to travel to Los Roques in off-peak periods (peak ones are december, carnival, holy week and august), where the posada's occupancy is at its maximum; this way, it will be much easier to find a posada and air tickets from Caracas. It is also possible that based on the number of days and the number of persons in the booking we can give you a discount if the booking is made for a low season date.

 

Visibility

The visibility is very good! on average, is between 15 and 30 meters but there are points where the visibility is even greater.

 

Depths

In general, the maximum depths are around the 30 meters but there are some diving sites where the depth is higher.
