Good day and thanks for reaching out to us. There are direct flights to Roatan from Atlanta, Houston, Miami, Dallas Forth Worth and New York City. I would recommend flying directly to Roatan. Although fares there are usually higher, if this is your destination, then you will be saving on the internal airplane tickets that tend to be expensive in Honduras. Although the flights are not daily, most destinations offer at least two or three weekly schedules that you can accommodate to.
