Hello @douglasg

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic activities, flights, tourism have been postponed. Haven’t heard of a marathon yet, but we’re doing our best to update information regarding the situation in Roatan. We will let you know if this activity will be done.

On the other hand, Roatan International Airport is open since August 17th. There are some restrictions if you want to travel to Honduras such as:

Juan Manuel Gálvez International Airport, in the city of Roatán, open from Monday to Saturday from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

To ensure the effectiveness of the biosecurity procedures implemented in
air transport, an expedited procedure has been established that implies new requirements in addition to the requirements for entering/leaving the country determined in the Immigration Law, which is:
a) Complete the information at of:

-Make your immigration pre-check

b)passengers must present a negative result of the Polymerase Chain Reaction Test (PCR) in the real-time or rapid test with a minimum specificity of 85%, Sensitivity 98% for COVID-19, carried out in a period not exceeding seventy-two hours (72) before entering the country. In unforeseen circumstances, the passenger will undergo a clinical evaluation by the staff of the International Health Office
c)Comply with the other biosecurity measures established in the protocols of the Secretary of State in the Health Office (mandatory use of a mask)
All travelers must ensure that they meet the requirements to leave the country and enter the country of destination. Compliance with the requirements is the responsibility of each passenger. If a foreign passenger develops respiratory symptoms or shows signs or symptoms compatible with a contagious

It is reiterated to the population to take into account all the biosecurity measures that have been implemented and to be at least three (3) hours before their flight in the corresponding airport. Also, make sure to have on hand your hotel reservation as a safe-conduct.
