We loved Roatan! Booked a customized tour with Victor Bodden. Held Sloths, Monkeys, and McCaws. Then went to West Bay Beach. Fun and Beautiful! Loved the people! We didn’t find the vendors pushy at all. On the beach they just held up what they were selling and kept walking when we said no thank you. Very friendly people!
This time in Roatan we booked an excursion with Shore Excursioneer called “Roatan Paradise Beach Club day pass”, the cost was $114USD for 2 adults and 1 child (8yrs). We had a private transfer to/from the port to hotel, upon arrival we were given a hotel bracelet, towel and given a briefing on the hotel amenities. We then headed for our beach chair on the gorgeous West Bay Beach. The water was warm, super clear and had some amazing snorkelling. The Cayuco beachside grill had good food in a nice relaxed environment. The hotel had a very nice pool set back in the gardens, the washroom facilities were clean and plentiful and the beach bar staff were attentive. There were lots of beach vendors but we found a polite “no thank you” was sufficient, they were not super pushy. When we were ready to go, we just informed the host who ordered our return transfer. Just give them ample warning for your desired return time as the traffic can be hectic. Overall a fantastic day at a good price, we look forward to going back.
Had heard a lot about Little French Key. Did not like it. Swimming was mostly done from dock. Not a real Caribbean beach. It was more of a lagoon cut out of a jungle. Lunch was ONE plate of food. A bbq chicken leg 😂 Included drinks was either 2 cheapos such as soft drink or beer, or cheapo liquor. If you wanted name brand, you only get one. All this for only $85 pp. Wayyyyyyyyyyyy overpriced.
We loved Roatan. We did an island tour with Cleve and he was awesome. He loves his island, the history and the culture. He took us anywhere we wanted to go. He let took us to some great places for shopping and views and he bought some traditional foods for us to try. Great day with a great guide! If you are only on the island for a few hours, I highly recommend Cleve's tours.
We got a personal driver for the day. Best idea ever. We toured all over the island. I took my wife to the Cameo factory to pick out a very special gift. All of them are hand carved locally. You can actually watch some of the artists working while you are there. Amazing heirloom quality pieces. We also went to one of the chocolate factories. Soooo good. Finally we made are way to the Rusty Fish. The make art out of trash collected. It's all good fun stuff.
It's recommended that you book an excursion or stay in port. We ziplined and explored the island. Wonderful experience and interactions with locals. Beautiful beaches.
We loved Roatan and did the Monkey & Sloth Sanctuary with Island Marketing. Fantastic value for money. Our guide, Felicia drove us around the island, stopping at a local shop that made chocolate before heading to the sanctuary. After that she took us to a local waterside restaurant for lunch. A fantastic day
This is actually my favorite port! We have been to many but this port is so Clean and Beautiful. The Beach is easy to access, the islands is so clean and tropical. The food and shops are great as well!!! Love love love!
We were on the Norwegian Escape and didn't see any good excursions there.......but people said to go to Little French Key. It's not on the excursion website so search it up on the web to their own website. GO.....NOW........LFK, BEST EXCURSION EVER.
