Roatan Island is one of the most fascinating islands in the Caribbean, with tropical beauty, interesting villages, and landmark attractions. The crystal waters surrounding Roatan are home to thousands of unique species of fish and other marine life, and the lush vegetation on the island offers some stunning panoramic views. On this Roatan excursion, you'll see it all, visiting charming villages and towns, driving through scenic overlooks, and experiencing underwater mysteries aboard a glass bottom boat.
Your Roatan shore excursion begins with a drive to the west side of the island in a comfortable, air conditioned transport vehicle. Driving through Coxen Hole, the largest town on Roatan, your experienced guide will regale you with interesting facts about the history and culture of the island.
Next, your drive will take you through other small towns and villages, including Sandy Bay, which is in an area of the Roatan Marine Park preserve. Arrive at West End Village and take some time to walk around to visit the unique shops and restaurants. Enjoy a beverage on the beach or at the bar and immerse yourself in Roatan's relaxed lifestyle.
After your stop at West End Village, take a 30 minute underwater adventure in a uniquely designed glass bottom boat that offers stunning views of the ocean floor. Observe the amazing world beneath the water's surface with numerous species of tropical fish and other marine life that inhabit the second largest barrier reef in the world.
The last leg of your journey takes you to the lighthouse in West Bay. Guests love the scenic ocean view, where you can snap some photos and shop for some souvenirs to make your day complete. The return trip takes you through more scenic overlooks and small communities, including Flowers Bay, Gravels Bay, and Pensacola.

Our guide was very pleasant and showed us the Island Roatan. We also went to the monkey zoo. Would suggest the this be included in your overall tour and the tour price reflects this inclusion. This was an extra charge but was would it. Would suggest the tour would include seeing a beach on the island. Really enjoyed the glass bottom boat.
