My wife and I are visiting Roatan finally in September. We are coming on a cruise. We’ll be there a day and I have secured a van for us to tour the island. I know a day isn’t enough but if you wanted to show a couple the flavor of Roatan, where would you visit? What would you insist they see? Not tourist traps but friendly residents and fun. I’m looking to set up an itinerary for our friends and us to experience Roatan on an introductory level.
Hello, it really depends on how far you want to go. Sandy Bay is a mix of expat and locals. You can drive to the East End of the island, go to Punta Gordo or even further east to La Serena. It’s a nice drive to the East End, you can stop at local shops and food stands.
If you have a car rented and can go to the other end of the island. Camp bay beach is incredible to look at and swim at… Then go on down to the restaurant La Sirena, It doesn’t look good at first sight but the food is good and you have hummingbirds flying to your table. Then go take the mangrove tour in oak ridge.
Will certainly do so. I think once the wife gets a taste, we will be back sooner than later. She retires shortly after we get back from the cruise and I hope to join her after the first of the year, looking forward to having a tank on my back again.
