Roatan

Coxen Hole 69°F The description will appear after the cache period.

Roatan, Honduras

Roatan is an island located off the coast of Honduras. The island offers a rich variety of activities such as diving, snorkelling, sunbathing, and deep-sea fishing. The warm and crystal clear waters of Roatan are home to diverse aquatic life, such as turtles, dolphins, sharks, and colourful coral reef. With its relaxed pace of life and natural beauty, Roatan is a perfect escape from the busy life.

Roatan is also known for its affordable vacation deals, accommodation, dining, and entertainment options. It is no wonder that Roatan has become a popular destination for tourists and expatriates from around the world. The town’s friendly locals are a mix of Honduran natives and ex-pats who make visitors feel at home, always ready to lend a helping hand or provide some local tips. Whether you are seeking adventure or relaxation, Roatan is a destination worth considering.

Carnival uses a man-made cruise port they call Mahogany Bay. There are your typical Dufry shops here. I would suggest getting with a local and taking a tour of the island or finding something to do here.

I will warn you, when you get with a local or a taxi, there’s a bit of a hike to get them.

You need to exit the port area, walk through the parking lot until you see the stairs going up the hill. Go up the hill, then as you walk back down the hill you’ll see the road lined with vendors waiting to take you wherever you want to go.

If you decide to go to Daniel Johnson’s to see the sloths, I would recommend going there first as it gets busy as cruise passengers arrive. We head there first to beat the rush.
