Default Roatan

Considered the third best snorkel/scuba location in the world. Island is beginning to experience major influx of Euro money and US money with expensive homes. Population loves cruise ships....had created alot of tourist related jobs. But, if you are any kind of beach person, taxi to the West End and spend a day on the can rent snorkel gear, or parasail, or catch a water taxi and see the island from the sea side.....
Costa Maya: at the port, lots of shops in a circle around the entrance, or you can do a Mayan ruins tour, or you can taxi/bus to the fishing village and spend the day at a beach, with shops stretching in both directions from where the taxi/bus drops you off...Not probelm getting back, tons of cheap taxis.
