Join others from your cruise ship for a nice 5-hour cultural and sightseeing tour...and then an afternoon of Fun-and-Sun at West Bay Beach. From Roatan Island sightseeing & culture to the beach with an optional visit to Victor's Monkey Business in the middle of the day to see monkeys, sloths and macaws...or take a break and shop/relax! No other tour will give you a taste of Roatan like this Roatan Island Highlights tour...operated by island NATIVES, not cruise ship employees or contracted staff! We KNOW our island, its' culture and our island people, and can't wait to share our island with you!
Our 5-Hour Roatan Island Cultural Sightseeing Tour including West Bay Beach Resort departs our assembly area at your port one hour after your ship's arrival at the dock. Please arrive 10 minutes prior to departure to check-in. Guests not arriving in-time will not be able to tour and tour fees will not be refunded.
Meet your Fun-n-Sun Guide, along with others from your ship, ONE HOUR after your ship's arrival at the dock...and begin your tour day in one of our air-conditioned tour vehicles. Your guide will share our unique landscape, local culture, as well as some Roatan/ Bay Island history. Your tour group will make several sightseeing stops along the way, allowing you to get outside of the vehicle for some outstanding photo opportunities. A stop at Roatan's Panorama Hill offers an open view of our island, villages and cruise ports. Some of the sights that we will share include: shipwrecks off the shoreline, the villages of Coxen Hole, French Harbor, Sandy Bay and West End, overlooks showing the jungles and coral reefs, etc.
Then, a 45-minute stop and optional free access to Victor's Monkey Business. Here, you may visit the monkeys, sloths, parrots, island deer, and other animals, if you like. Or, alternatively, do some on-site souvenir shopping for Honduran products (mahogany crafts, coffee, vanilla, etc.) If you'd rather, kick back on one of our hammocks or picnic tables surrounded by tropical trees and watch guests as they zip along on the Mayan Jungle Canopy overhead. (Unfortunately, this tour does not allow extra time for the zipline experience, please see our other VIATOR tour "Zipline, Monkey and Parrot Interaction plus Beach Resort Combo Tour in Roatan" for a tour that DOES include the zipline!) Restroom facilities are available here, too!
After a bit more sightseeing, we will stop by West Bay Beach and the Bananarama Beach Resort. This is Roatan's most beautiful white sand beach, lined with resorts, restaurants and bars. This is a 2-hour stop and you will be able to explore the mile-long beach, snorkel, swim and relax! You will be provided with an arm-band allowing you access to a beach chair, restroom facilities and fresh water showers at Bananarama Resort! West Bay Beach, protected by the offshore reef, is a wonderful sea grass and rock-free beach with powder-soft sand unlike any other beach on Roatan...it is groomed and maintained daily.There are many water-activities available here, and you can rent most anything: kayaks, canoes, snorkel gear, jet-skis, parasail, bananaboats, etc. Or, just relax and enjoy a cold beverage or a snack at one of the many restaurants or bars, including the tasty menu at Bananarama!
After your beach-break, we will load back up and do a bit more sightseeing on our way back to the cruise ship ports. Our Highlights tour is designed to allow for more shopping time in and around your dock upon your return.
Note that our Fun-n-Sun tour is a group excursion with others from your ship, and operates on a set itinerary. No customization is possible on this tour. ALL FUN-N-SUN tours depart the designated assembly areas ONE HOUR after your cruise ship's scheduled arrival time on our island...no customization of departure time is available at this time.
