Default Roatan Honduras

Has anyone been on a cruise that goes to Roatan Honduras? What shore excursion is the best to go on?

We have been there twice, and I believe both time we did a beach excursion that included a meal. The beaches were beautiful and the meal was good.
The first time we went, our childern were teens and their first cruise and they were amazed at how some people lived in shacks and how poor the country was, and my kids have traveled all over the world. It was very humbling to them and I believe a great expreince for them to see how other people live.

We also did a beach day here at Tabyana Beach through the cruiseline. Really enjoyed our day there, lunch was included, and it is a beautiful clean beach. They had other tours than combined some time at the beach and something adventurous like a Canopy tour, so it depends what you are looking for. Like the other poster said, this is a very poor country, really not much shopping to speak of. I felt more comfortable taking a ship excursion there even though we go off on our own at other ports. There were a few vendors at the beach. Hope this helps...Happy sails

In the entire world, the third best snorkel and diving locale is Roatan.
Strongly encourage you to look at a beach day or at the very least a snorkel opportunity.

Have been to Tabyana several times. Nice beach with lunch that is a buffet of hamburgers, hot dogs or chicken. Sounds silly, but I remember this great almond tea! You can do a zip line there, snorkel or get a massage under the palm trees. Think if was $25 for an hour and that was with two massage therapists. We hope that NCL will return there soon.

We also did Tabayana Beach and had a wonderful day. We also did the glass bottom boat tour. This was a large vessel and you enter on the top deck walked down about 5 feet into the bottom of the boat and the outside walls were glass. This was an amazing view on the ocean as we went over some very deep drop off and saw lots of ocean life. We were on a NCL cruise. We went right from the beach onto the boat and bought the tour thru the ship. It did appear you could buy on land.

Victor Bodden- IMO the best deal in Rotan $25pp all day and he will take you all over the Island. I don't think I can post a link but you could try Google. I have used him twice.
