Default Has anyone been to Roatan

and if so, besides snorkling and diving is there anything else to do . I snorkel but I am asking for our traveling partners who do not. Any help would be appreciated.

We've been there twice and did Salt and Peppers both times. Love it. Just enjoyed the beach and snorkled. Guess I'm not much help. Have a great time.

No you have been of help. My friends will go to the beach, and if there is a good beach to snorkel from that would be great. We are all happy then. Thanks.

We have friends who've done the Texaribbean tour about 4 or 5 times and are going again in January. Their main reason for taking this itinerary so much is the snorkeling at Tabyana Beach. The nice thing is that if there is something else your friends would like to do, many of the other activities can be combined with some time at Tabyana Beach -- i.e. horseback riding, canopy tour, etc. so that you could meet up after their other activity.

Not all of them -- I know one of the couples from our cruise critic roll call group ended up somewhere else after their island tour. I don't know if all the descriptions specify, but some of them definitely do. You can do them alone or include the Tabyana beach portion.

WHAT EXACTLY IS SALT AND PEPPERS? So what I am getting from these postings is that most of the activity on Roatan is snorkeling, diving, horseback riding. Is there shopping??? I realize this is a third world country, but so is Costa Maya and they have a very nice shopping mall set up just as you leave the ship.

Private Beach, run by David Paul, he is very intertaining himself. We were there last Nov. if it hasn't changed. It was 35.00 pp, he pickes you up at the dock ( he or someone holds a sign that says Salt & Peppers) so you get your ride to the beach, 10 miles? lunch, lobster, corn on the cob, beans and rice, bread. place to change, rent gear, maybe 2.00 for beach chair. drinks served on the beach, and you can get a massage cheap. Nothing fancy, we found it very relaxing and islandy. He has a wb site. Might want to look at that. There is a small area to shop right back by the ships. We shopped the first time in 03, but our ship told us where to stay and not to wonder off. More ships are docking here now and lots of new construction going on. That's all we done at this port. Good luck.

No shopping to speak of, but you will want to stop by the open market on your way back to the ship. The natives do wonders with pottery! Roatan is a very poor, but friendly and beautiful island. yes, the canapy tour and snorkeling are the two things they are noted for. Tabyana Beach is lovely as well as some other beaches. As for Salt and Peppers we were going to use them out last trip which was in November, but they stood us up. We were very disappointed and have read this has happened before. It used to have wonderful reputation; lately on another website we have read some questionable reviews. This doesn't mean anyone should not use them, but I would check out the Ports a Call thread on this website and CCs just to get an idea. NMnita
