All about Roatan
WestJet, a Canadian air carrier based in Calgary, Alberta announced yesterday that they will begin a flight to Roatan Honduras! The service is scheduled to commence this December and will operate once a week on Sundays. The route is from Toronto to Roatan and according to the preliminary schedule, will be landing in Roatan RTB airport at 1:11 pm.
I took off to find a place for breakfast. I figured it would be a good option to go the Megaplaza Mall just outside of French Harbour. The fact that the CEMESA hospital is there means that there should be people that need a good breakfast after getting their lab tests. I was happy I went with my instincts, as I found a great new breakfast spot in French Harbour!
Yes, there are two different faces to Roatan! This week I had a chance to visit the island. I spent most of the day in Roatan’s East End. I enjoyed the pristine beaches, the laid-back resorts and the tropical nature. As the day was ending, and just a bit before sunset, I made it to the eclectic West End Village. Here, I saw the other different face that Roatan has to offer!

The top 5 destinations in Honduras are the following. Copan Ruinas, Roatan, Utila, Atlantida and Lake Yojoa. They are the five brightest shining stars in Honduras. I hope that you can fit most of them in your travel itinerary and get to discover Honduras. Happy travels!
The most visited destination in the country is Roatan Honduras. But where is Roatan, how do you get there, and what is it that attracts visitors? Roatan Honduras is one of the Bay Islands of Honduras. This is a small archipelago that consists of 7 islands and many smaller cays.
In 1860, a group of Islanders requested the assistance of William Walker to help them resist the transfer of the Bay Islands from the UK to Honduras. They told him that the islanders would support him in resistance against becoming part of Honduras. Walker readily agreed and rounded up a group of mercenaries to accompany his new adventure.
The Buccaneer Inn is built in the perfect spot and has the perfect feel to it. It gives the community of French Harbour character and is the pride of the town. It has been reinvented and is now home to Roatan’s newest swim club. It is also home to a lovely small museum that features the history of the Bay Islands of Honduras. Enjoy at cup of coffee at the Walala Café, or your favorite beer at the Beer Bar.
I guess I am a born explorer. Perhaps not your Indiana Jones adventurer going way off the beaten path to follow a quest. But I am one to take a turn on the road and see where it leads. Today while in Roatan, I did just that, and went down a steep road following a sign that said “Ibagari”.
Since I live in La Ceiba, travel to Roatan is easy. I have two options: I can fly or take the ferry. When I first moved to Honduras, I could only fly, as there was still no ferry service available. Fortunately, we now have a state of the art ferry that is efficient, safe and fast!
