    Andrew, TaxiMan Extraordinaire

    Since we checked ahead on what to do on the port, and found CSI Roatan, we checked in with their directors and found out that for $10 USD a day we could basically have a personal driver during our whole time. Andrew was a personal tour guide, driving us to great shopping, dining, and beach activities throughout this huge island!

    I would highly recommend his services! The easiest way to reach him is to just print out this tip with his picture, or go off the pier and ask for him!

    Cruise on into Roatan

    by ATXtraveler Written Dec 11, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    NCL Sea

    Roatan, to the dismay of the traditionalists of island travel, and to the excitement of cruisers will soon be overrun by more tourists as cruise lines realize how wonderful this port is.

    I loved my time there, however it will be sad to see the small port town grow exponetially with cruise traffic. Luckily, the dive communities of West End and Half Moon should remain safe as the cruisers will not find this as easily!

    We came in on Norweigan, but also saw Radisson Seven Seas there.

    4nnnner just notified me that there are two weekly direct flights to San
    Pedro-Sula and La Ceiba from Toronto, Ontario. Both are charters. One is with
    SkyService and the other through World of Vacations. The former is currently
    posted at $761 CDN return including taxes. Flight time is about 4 hours. This
    would assist travelers in the lower Great Lakes basin who want to avoid USA
    airports and multiple transfers.
    These numbers I have not validated, but it's worth checking out for those Canadians and other foreigners who don't want to deal with American security stuff.

    TACA or Take A Chance Airlines

    by retiredjack Updated Apr 27, 2004

    The plane from Miami to Roatan

    The best itinerary I found was American Airlines from Montreal to Miami then Taca from Miami to Roatan Honduras at $1200CDN. How simple can it get? But when I landed in Roatan My green suitcase was not there. After locating an airline representative (he was well camouflaged as an ordinary local – no uniform) he noted on a scrap of paper where I was staying, the phone number, a description of my bag and the baggage check ticket number.
    Having arrived on Sunday and calling the airline company every day until Friday to get only I don’t know, mañana or simply no answer, I paid the $40US return taxi ride from West Bay to the airport to claim my bag which I found out by the same Taca representative that it had been there for 3 days and they thought I would pick it up on my way back.
    The first thing I did when he handed my suitcase is to take out my sandals and a fresh Tee-shirt because I was barefoot, unshaven and pretty grungy looking. Then I left without being offered any compensation or even a “We are sorry”.

    Taxi's and cruise ship days

    From my house Taxis are pretty easy to get if you walk a few hundred yards down the road. Costs vary a lot depending on whether there are cruise ships there or not. Ask someone familiar with the Island what Taxis should cost before overpaying for a ride. We prefer to rent a car while there just because we are so used to be able to go where and when we want. Roads can be pretty bad at times. Be carefull if you do rent a car.

    TACA Airlines

    Nice flight

    TACA is the national airlines of Honduras and flies every day to and from the mainland and to many places in Centeral America and the United States.

    TACA uses some small airplanes for the short flight to the main land and we found it to be loads of fun on the smaller aircraft. The windows were very large and the plane flew low so we were able to get some great views of the island.

    RTB airport

    When it get to be time to leave paradise make sure you get to the airport early so that you can check your bags and site in the waiting room.

    The Resorts around the island take all of their guest to the airport around the same time so when it is busy it is real busy.

    How to get around

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Rental truck

    The Island is easy to navigate by car, but please drive the roads in daylight before you drive them at night.
    There are several rental car agencies on the island -- including :
    Sandy Bay Rent-A-Car (504-445-1710)
    Toyota Rent-A-Car (504-445-1166).

    Drivers are required to show a valid drivers license and a cash or credit card deposit.

    The truck in the picture cost 65$ for the day.

    There are also taxis and buses -- you should always negotiate the price for a taxi before leaving for your destination.

    Most resorts will arrange transportation to and from the airport.

    Roatan Airport

    Roatan has one airport that you can use to get from the main Island to the mainland or to some of the smaller islands.

    Some of the bigger airplanes have problems with the rain and the short runway.
