Default Roatan

We are booked on a cruise the week before Christmas to Cozumel and Roatan....but I notice that the Government advises American citizens not to travel to Roatan due to political unrest. Does anyone know if that port destination will be changed.

We're looking at the week after Christmas. I will be interested what others have heard/experienced.

Thanks for the post.

I'm usually pretty savvy on these things, but don't know much about Roatan. What I do know is that many times the government will place a country on this list as a kind of soft sanction if they don't do as they want them to. So there may be no real danger. Even the regular ports are dangerous if you go to the wrong neighborhoods. There are MANY places in the world that are on this travel advisory list that are safe to go to. Just do your research.

Just an update.....the new web address is: http://www.mayakeyroatan.com/en/index.html

Note that they have doubled their prices to $50 pp. At their old pricing it was well worth the money, but now sadly, I can no longer recommend it.
