Is Roatan getting a new Cruise Ship Port?

news

#1

Does anyone know if a new cruise ship port is going to be built in Roatan? And if so, when? I was speaking to a fella today who claims there is and that it will be built in Port Royal…

Hummmm, this may be a better question for @Larry32roatan or @jorgechavezonroatan

Independently of any rumors, I am sure Roatan would welcome the new business. But the infrastructure on the east side would likely need to Developed outside of any new port.

Good question. Thank you.

What I have heard, (second hand) that a political figure stated in an open
meeting that his first priority if elected would be the widening of the
roads on the island, building overpasses at Los Fuertes and Coxen Hole.
Again, second hand information from someone running for office.
He also stated that yes two more positions for cruise ships were also being
worked on.

That’s what I have been hearing as well…a possible new cruise ship port at Port Royal. Same as the expansion of the airport and Port of Roatan to accommodate additional ships by building several more docks. What’s a rule when diving…don’t hold your breath?

@RoatanExcursions - It’ll be done on “Island time”…!

I hope this happens. Roatan can handle it.

I have heard that rumor several times but I have been unable to verify. About 12 years ago I was the sales Agent that sold that property to an investment group but then came the RE
’bubble’ and it has sat ever since. They are a ‘wheeler/dealer’ politically connected bunch so it would not surprise me. That said projects of that size are pretty difficult to keep 'secret’
and there, I would think, would need to be a lot of National Government participation and negotiations. Therefore the ‘word’ would be out, not just rumor.
