... Honduras, so it is a very popular dive site. For what they lack in civil infrastructure, they make up for in dive shops.
I did a lot of research on safety precautions. Robberies of tourists are somewhat common, but rarely violent. No jewelry or purses. Everything was mostly pre-paid and the little cash we had was in my sock. The cruise line owns the port and has created a safe beachfront park for the passengers called Mahogany Bay. ...
... turned out to be a very interesting character.
Eduardo had a knack for over exaggerating facts, picking on fat people and formulating all history from what he had seen on television. His key reference material came from Mel Gibson’s Apocalypto movie. I was the only one who’d seen it so I immediately became his second in command, ...
... told him that we had gone for a car together. The girls were told that it was illegal for two men to be on a bike together due to many incidents of drive by shootings by men of the back of motor bikes. Fortunate for us, the worst thing we had to deal with was a constant tapping noise coming from this post world war 2 bike. So after we managed to assure the girls it was all good, we grabbed the girls, threw all our gear in the back of the truck and proceeded ...
... it lacked were the nurse sharks, southern stingrays and turtles! Well worth the US $3 water taxi fare each way.
One cruise ship Carnival Conquest was in port at Mahogany Bay today. ...
Luckily, I was able to take some pictures though. During part of the tour, we stopped at a field that was covered in mud. In this area, they let people go through as many mud puddles as they wanted to - therefore getting extra muddy. I stepped off the buggy and let Joanne have her fun. I took lots of pictures also. When she was done, she was covered in mud - along with the buggy. lol
After riding through the field, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Barefoot Cay Roatan
Barefoot Cay was one of the most wonderful spots I have visited in the Caribbean, to have a private and relaxing vacation! We spent half of our time out on the breezy palanca (a prime spot to avoid the no-see-ums) sitting in the hammocks or snorkeling, and the other half in the lovely and refreshing pool.
Paradise on Earth
There are several reasons why staying at Barefoot Cay reminds you of a Paradise on Earth.
First, the gracious and warm hospitality of John and Milesse Kennedy and all of their staff really make you feel welcome and at home, down to the last detail.
Second, the cay itself is attractive, well groomed, and offers plenty of activities. These include snorkeling, kayaking, scuba, swimming, plus more.
Third, the bungalows are decorated with a wonderful island flavor and are top notch in quality.
Clearly, a stay at Barefoot Cay will provide you with a feeling of Paradise that lasts longer than the time you spend there.
Barefoot Cay is absolutely wonderful! We had planned to stay on West End but decided to stay at Barefoot Cay instead. After visiting West End we were SO happy with our decision! West End is busy and crowded where Barefoot Cay is quiet and private. We felt as though we owned the island by ourselves most of the time! The staff is wonderful, most accomodating when you want, and respectful of your privacy when not needed. Although the island is private you have very easy access to the mainland whenever you want. You will love the bungalows, especially the shower! Although isolated, we had TV, AC, internet access, full kitchen, nearby grocery store, etc... There is a great dive shop there that will pick you up at your front door (Subway). We have traveled the Caribbean extensively and vote Barefoot Cay #1!!!
Barefoot Cay Anniversary
My wife and I chose Barefoot Cay to spend our 10-year anniversary. It was the best vacation of our lives. The island is peaceful and quiet. The staff is very accomodating and friendly.
We experienced the perfect balance of relaxation while on the cay, while maintaining easy access to the main island or Roatan.
The accomodations were new, clean and private.
We hope to return in the future.
We visited Barefoot Cay for the first time (and not the last time) in late January/early February this year. We had a great time! The management team (John, Milesse, and Santos) is awesome! We think the people made the trip. They were there when we needed them and left us alone when we didn't.
This was our second year to stay at Barefoot Cay. For this second trip, we researched all over the Caribbean looking for the perfect place, then realized that what we were looking for was exactly what we'd experienced the year before at Barefoot Cay:
Spent a week at Barefoot Cay in March, 2006.
My husband and I just returned from a vacation at Barefoot Cay, on Roatan (part of the Bay Islands of Honduras). We were there for three weeks and while the weather was a little iffy about half the time, Barefoot Cay is the best place on the island. We arrived late at night and were greeted with a basket of fruit in our bungalow--just right for a quick late night snack before retiring.
My wife and I just returned from our honeymoon at Barefoot Cay. We were there for a week and had beautiful weather and were able to get out and really find our way around the island (first time to Roatan for both of us) and I must say, without a doubt, that Barefoot Cay is one of, if not THE, best place on the island.
