Eco Walk and Suspension Bridges
To make your Caribbean vacation complete, explore the raw jungle and lush canopy of Roatan on a stimulating Eco-walk.
After meeting your driver at the pier for this Roatan excursion, you will make your way to the island's West End, approximately a 30 minute-drive, where your jungle exploration takes place.
Setting out with your guide, you will descend down into the raw jungle of Roatan Island, walking over paved paths, wooden steps, and suspension bridges while keeping an eye out for tropical flowers, "Tarzan" vines, birds, lizards, iguanas, fruit and nut trees and amazing views. This is a great trip for photographers!
The suspension bridges have a width of four feet and a capacity for 10 people. They vary in length from 150 feet to 200 feet, making them the longest and strongest bridges in the Western Caribbean. They range in height from 20 to 85 feet above the ground. The walking portion of the tour lasts about 40 minutes and covers approximately one mile in distance. When you reach the bottom, transportation is available to take you back up to the top where you can meet up with the transfer back to the cruise pier. The more active can retrace their steps.
Please note: Infants are allowed in a carrier backpack only up to 11 months are free of charge.

Rather a long drive from the dock to the site but that gave us a chance to see different areas of the island. The walk was very interesting and our guide was very knowledgeable. She explained the medical uses for many of the plants. Knew the history of the area, the plant, animals, and was able to answer all of our questions. Enjoyable.
Our guide was wonderful on explaining the different trees we came across and what medicines they get from them and how they use them. She was great at letting us know at each bridge why it was named what it was. Very fun way to trek through the jungle.
Knowledgeable guide. Interesting area. Many suspension bridges over the forest. As a bonus, the bus driver gave us a driving tour on the way back to the ship.
Really enjoyed the tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and the tour gave us the opportunity to see wildlife and the rainforest from up high. The driver also took time to explain the island's culture and showed us more of the island than I expected
