... and excitement. A lot of regular folks in polo shirts and Hawaiian shirts. Teenagers debating what the cooler way to say Roatan is (with a big American twang like Row-eh-tannn or with somewhat of an effort to sound local like Ro-ah-tahn?). The plane ride was fairly painless. I was absorbed in the world of MasterChef Australia. I then saw a rugged island-- isla de Roatan! The airport was nondescript, and the surroundings were very... virgin? It was ...
... weather. This meant I had to catch a ferry from Roatan to Le Ceiba on the Honduran mainland then another ferry to Utila.
The first ferry trip was on a large 150 foot modern ferry which handed the seas pretty well (for the experts I estimated it was sea state 4), a little bit of a roll but nothing too worrying. Seventy minutes after departure we arrived in Le Ceiba, and a serious cause for concern presented itself, the ferry to Utila. This ferry was a 60 ...
... and the water was really calm on our side of the island. We headed out to a spot that was known to have large sea turtles. This dive was amazing. We saw a number of giant sea turtles and were able to swim along with one for half the dive. Really enjoyable dive and I am super glad I committed to it because I almost pulled out. That afternoon we headed in to the main town centre where the locals live. This was semi interesting although it was ...
... town, it was clear that the dive shops here weren’t as slick as Utila and were definitely more expensive. So watching the wallet, we decided to forego diving at this stage. Instead we headed back home and hung out at home, swam, cooked up a storm and generally took it easy. With this new plush house that we had acquired, we decided to stay in and enjoy it and we did with a cheese, crackers and red wine night on the deck at sunset. Can life get any better - I think ...

Caught the 4.30 pm ferry for the 90 minute trip over to Roatan Island which is the largest of Honduras' Bay Islands.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHalf Moon Resort Roatan
The rooms are nice enough, they have a small fridge, AC, the bathroom is alright but the water pressure isn't very good in the shower. There are balconies with chairs and hammocks out the front where it is nice to just sit and relax. There is a little beach area with deck chairs out the front, lots of shade. The location is fantastic, on the edge of West End so close to all the restaurants and dive shops. Right on a beautiful part of the bay and reef.
Unfortunately, the wifi does not extend to the rooms and is a little sporadic. Also there is no breakfast included.
