This was an extensive look at Roatan. I believe we actually drove every passable road on the island. We stopped at an Iguana Preserve and Sloth/Monkey/Macaw House. The mangrove tunnels were definitely the highlight. We could have done without the stop at the tacky souvenir shop, but the rest of the island was beautiful. This was a lot of driving and the actual mangrove tunnel part was just the last little bit of the tour. But it was quite unique and we are glad we took this excursion.

This tour was my husband's idea. I did not expect to care for it much, but it was very good. We were able to see much of the island and tour the Iguana Farm. When we got to the boat for the Mangrove tunnel portion of the tour I thought I was prepared for the little boat by reading other reviews, but I was still shocked at the tiny boat. The boat was tiny, but apparently safe as we all made it fine. I was slightly concerned as there were no life jackets on board, but thankfully we did not need them! The mangrove tunnels were very interesting.
