Our visit to Roatan in 2009 was very different than our visit to Honduras in 2001. Both times we enjoyed perfect water - clear, calm, warm, and full of sea life including bioluminescence! Roatan has a lot of US prices (they use US dollars just as much as the local limpira) but I think it could be done on a budget with some effort.

Average Costs

The daily total includes all lodging, food, booze, transportation, sightseeing, visas, etc. I don't include the money I spend on gifts for friends and I do not include the flight price.
