To start planning your vacation to Posada La Gotera


Originally built as a fisherman's house, the now lovingly restored and remodelled La Gotera is a striking blue and white posada with a privileged location on Gran Roque Beach in Los Roques, a coralline archipelago of 350 stunning islands, cays and islets, roughly 100 miles off the coast of Venezuela.

The five spacious and brightly colored guest rooms, each with private en suite bathroom and ceiling fan, are located right on the beach front and afford fabulous views. Freshly prepared meals are served on a seaside veranda and are made up of mainly Italian seafood specialities. This is also a great place to watch the sunset with one of La Gotera's infamous Caribbean cocktails.

Los Roques National Park is teeming with marine life so it's a fantastic spot for diving, snorkeling and also fishing for bonefish, barracuda and tarpon amongst others.
