Roatan Island has so much to offer, including the incredible history of the Garifuna. This Roatan excursion will take you back in time and back to the future!

Departing from the pier on the South Shore of the island in your small group, you will first make your way towards the island's East End. Along the way you will hear of the island's colorful history, which includes Indians, slaves, invaders, pirates, buried gold, and a charming blend of cultures, people and languages. The main languages are Spanish, English, and Garifuna, which holds on to its African roots. You will pass through several of the small villages that dot the island including Barrio Los Fuertes and French Harbour, the second-largest town on the island. You may also see the wreck of ships along the coast. A stop will be made at one of the highest points on the eastern end of the island for stunning views over the hills covered with lush vegetation and the sea with its many shades of blue.

During this Roatan excursion, you will also visit the island's West End (most large group tours do not visit both the East and West End) where you will drive through several of the small communities such as Sandy Bay. Continue on to the West End, the tourist side of the island, with scuba diving centers, hotels, resorts, restaurants, beach clubs and tourist shops. Here, you will have a few minutes of free time to walk down to the water's edge, explore the tiny streets, or purchase a beverage.

Returning to the pier area, you will have the opportunity to take photos of the South Shore during a photo stop at a dramatic lookout. You will pass through several more small communities before arriving at the cruise pier in Coxen Hole, the capital of Roatan. A stop will also be made at the Mahogany Bay cruise terminal located outside of Coxen Hole.

I would like to thank Sam, our guide.there was only 2 of us on the tour.He talked us into doing zip line and animal sancuary all in one. Off the beaten path. I didn't have enough cash so he paid for it and when we got back to the ship I gave him his money back. Plus a handsome tip. He did not have to do what he did for us. Great guy. Thank You Sam. The zip line was fantastic. 18 stations. Wow!

Excursion was informative, comfortable and inclusive. Tour guide was knowledgeable and spoke clearly. Additionally, he was very helpful to an elderly rider who needed assistance. Van was modern & very clean.

Six of us boarded the van and had a delightful tour guide who gave us options of places to visit on our tour. We visited a monkey and sloth sanctuary, an iguana farm where we we able to hold the sloths. The guide was very informative of the island and finished our tour at a local outdoor restaurant. I would take this tour again.

4 StarsJust needed to be able to hear him betterJanuary 31, 2019

Reviewer: Marty Doctor
Everything went as planed with excellent directions on where to meet the tour and it left on time. Tour was good but the van was a little loud and our tour guide/driver had no intercom system in the van. We sat in back and could hardly hear him. The people up front certainly got more out of it than we did. It would have been much better if his van had an amplifier/intercom system.
