Subject: RE: islands in the sun
Hi Cynthia,

Last may I visited Los Roques which is a little island just North of Venezuela. I have to say, it was absolutely amazing!!!! The only way that I found to get there is to charter a flight from Caracus but there is at least one a day. Approaching the island is one of the most amazing sights I have ever seen - the water is so clear and the entire island is surrounded by reefs. The island itself is very small - only a cluster of small homes and B&Bs and the only vehicle is a dump truck. The people are very friendly and welcoming and really there isn't anything to do but swim and read and relax and snorkel. There is supposedly some great diving as well although I have never been myself. It is kind of off the beaten track but then again that's why I loved it!

Okay now I am having a hard time sitting at my desk!!
