Roatan What To Do

roatan.wideangleLooking for some activities to do while on the island of Roatan, Honduras. This island is packed with so much todo, and has something for everyone here. Spend a week or spend a day here.

Towns to visit: Coxen Hole, West End, West Bay (most touristy area), Sandy Bay, French Harbour, or the furthest end of the island Camp Bay. These are only a few, but the most popular ones. It’s very easy to get around with the taxi system, and the towns are only a 10-20 minutes apart.

Places To Stay – There is many B&B, hotels, and villas to stay at in Roatan, we had a fantastic stay with Mel at her Roatan Backpackers’ Hostel (even has room for families).

Sunset roatanThe island of Roatan has tons to see and do, but don’t get me wrong it’s mostly a Scuba Divers Paradise here. All of the diving is within a 5-10 minute boat ride, and the cheapest we have ever paid for diving.

What ever you do, don’t get sucked into the Roatan Vortex. Some people come here and never leave.
