Mahogany Bay, Roatan Honduras: We did not book a specific excursion at this stop but when got off the ship we went to taxi area. We found International Tours taxis. Our driver was Francisco. Please request Francisco. You will not regret it. He was awesome. All the drivers are English speaking drivers and will take you wherever you want to go and stay with you the entire time. It was about $45 person. We told Francisco we just wanted to see the island, the culture(not the tourist areas), and learn a bit of history about the island. FANTASTIC is not a strong enough word to describe Francisco. He took us into the neighborhoods showed us the homes, cemetery, schools, etc. he shared such great history about the culture. He allowed us to stop for pics. He even gave us a extensive history lesson on the Bojangles Fried Chicken restaurant😁( the only American fast food restaurant on the Island of Roatan). He took us to all the places that the locals go. He took us to the only shopping plaza in Roatan. We ate lunch at Snappers Seafood House. The fried conch and fried shrimp was delicious. Francisco stayed with us and translated for us in every shop we visited. The Pacers shop had very inexpensive t-shirts and souvenirs(you MUST stop/shop there if you tour the island). We visited the ice cream shop in plaza and my husband bought ice cream for everyone in the shop. It was such a great intimate experience with the locals. We returned to Mahogany Bay beach and enjoyed about 2 1/2hrs there. The beach is absolutely stunning with plenty of lounge chairs and shaded areas.

Mahogany Bay is absolutely gorgeous! The port shops were so much fun and the locals were so friendly (not pushy). We walked all over and ended up at a beautiful beach where we relaxed and cooled off til we walked back to the ship. The scenery and view was amazing! Definitely a favorite port!
The excursion to Little French Key was amazing!

wow. just wow. we weren’t expecting much from this port but it made the cruise worth it. it was the most beautiful port i’ve ever seen! we went on the carnival miracle 7 night western caribbean tampa round trip. we weren’t the biggest fans of the boat itself but man was this port wonderful. it offered a FREE nature walk that lead you to a amazing beach. carnival offers a excursion to this beach that costs about 40-45$ for two people; but if you just walk the nature walk you find this beach and get a chair for free instead of having to buy the excursion. they also have a massage tiki hut and a hut for fishes that eat the dead skin off your feet. though they are not free it is so worth the price because the massage i had there was one of the best ever! I LOVE THIS PORT💕 and will for sure be going back to it! I 100% RECOMMEND THIS PORT❤️🛳
This was my favorite stop on our cruise. The beach was beautiful, the free snorkeling off the boardwalk was spectacular, and the whole island was just gorgeous. We had the absolute best time here! Next time we’re going to explore more of this beautiful country
