Eco Walk and Beach Break
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.
we did this shore excursion on 08/28/2019 and we had a great time! Our guide was amazing. My sister was scared and cried bc she was scared but the guide was AMAZING with her. She pointed out plants and trees that are used to make medicines. We also got to taste a fruit off a tree and it was GREAT!. We got to see so many different animals and so many different plants. We are going back for sure!

It was a great excursion, small group , just the 4 of us and the guide, which was nice, much more personalized than the excursions from the ship where there was 75+ people. It was very hot, walking in the jungle, their was 7 swinging bridges. The guide was a very nice lady. The beach was beautiful.
My extended family and I did this tour recently. There was something on it for everyone. The bridges on the walk to a little getting used to, but once you did the scenery was spectacular. Beach was busy but fun. Chairs were provided at no extra cost and there was shade for those who wanted it. Overall a nice way to spend a few hours

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 !!
