Eco Walk and Beach Break
To make your Caribbean vacation complete, explore the raw jungle and lush canopy of Roatan on an Eco-walk, and then enjoy its most popular beach on this Roatan excursion.
After meeting your driver at the pier, 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.
Next on your Roatan excursion, you will drive to the beach, where you can splash in the sea at nearby West Bay. Here, you will have approximately 1-hour to beach walk, swim, rent snorkel gear, or just zone out in a sun beam, under a palm tree, or at the nearby beach bar and restaurant where food and cold drinks can be purchased. Beach chairs are also available for rental. All too soon, it is time to return to reality. Your driver will meet you for the drive back to the cruise pier.
Guests wishing to stay longer at the beach will be responsible for their own transportation back to the pier.

I thought the guide was knowledgeable and friendly. We were the only two on the tour so she was able to spend time to explain the flora and fauna to us and all the animals that live in the rain forest. Overall, very nice tour!
Great way to spend the day in Roatan. We met our guides and they transported us through the town to the other side of the island, so you get to see some of Roatan lifestyle. bathrooms are available once you get to the tour site, our guide Rosie was great!! She pointed out lots of animals that live in the jungle, then she showed us a termite nest, Rosie was eating the termites, that was different! We did not eat any. After the walk they transport you to the beach, the driver asked us how long we wished to stay , did not feel rushed at all. Great excursion we enjoyed it !!

I was fascinated by the things that can be learned on this tour. I did not know that termites for instance, create hives in trees. There is just so much that can be learned on this tour that I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn about nature in general and can walk.

The Eco walk was wonderful. Guide spotted snakes, lizards, spiders, etc. for us. Told medicinal properties of jungle vegetation. The beach portion of the trip would have been perfect except for the trash in the water and on the beach (Styrofoam, plastic, etc.). It spoiled the beautiful water. The beach vendors were annoying. No water in the restrooms. We were given a ticket for a drink and the use of lounge chairs was free. Our driver gave us an extra hour at the beach. Umbrellas were available to rent but we were able to find shade. Get rid of the trash and it would be a 5 star trip!
