... view. Back to the beach chairs... Sitting under palm trees and feeling the breeze! Went on water slides (surprisingly thrilling!). Some random people shared banana donuts with me and it was the greatest thing ever. They were dense and fat and chewy, like a perfect mix of a cake donut and banana bread coated with sugar. I rarely take a whole day and relax on the beach, and it was nice! Tomorrow is my last full day here (noooooooo), and I'll be doing 3 ...
There is something unsettling about how some of the most beautiful countries are so desperately poor. Honduras fits that bill. Currently ranked the murder capital of the world (based on murders/capita...as though that detail matters) Honduras offers huge pockets of natural beauty on land and at sea, surrounded by extreme poverty. It reminded me a lot of Kenya.
The second largest reef system in the world is most prominent off the coast of ...
... a complete mockery of this property. For a total of $60 a night, we surely could get something clean, tidy, closer to either the beach or town and without a random pitbull. So with that, we were on the job to change things… In the common interest, we all decided that it made sense to hire a car to get around the island due to things being spread out. So Bodie and I jumped on the hired bike and took a trip out to the airport where there were a number of car ...
... is much more fish life and somehow the reefs are in much better conditon. It also doesn't have ****** two stroke tuk tuks and scooters belching blue smoke and fumes racing up and down main street constantly beeping there horns and trying to clip your elbows with their wing mirrors. Oh and take note Utila, In Roatan restaurants, mini markets, taxi's, street vendors, ice cream sellers in fact everyone can change a ******* five hundred Lempira ...
... headed back to relax and skype home before our seafood dinner at Lighthouse restaurant. We opted for the seafood platter for two and it was a huge and delicious meal. The comical and theatrical part of the evening was trying to crack the crab shells with the hammer they provided us. It was tough to do! Then we came back to play Uno with our tour friends and enjoy some drinks. Friday 20 December 2013 Today we had baleadas for breakfast (yum!) before taking a water taxi over ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Paya Bay Resort Roatan
Paya Bay resort is on the VERY quiet East end of the Island. If you're coming to dive then this is without doubt the place to stay. If you want gourmet food and nightlife stay somewhere else (West end)
Paya Bay is a beautiful, secluded resort on the East side of Roatan. Although Paya Bay does not have a 48' dive boat or a collection of dolphins all penned up.....they do offer PERSONAL SERVICE!!!! At Paya Bay there are only about 8 rooms, so you will not be lost in the crowd. The food at Paya Bay is great...but chef Charlie is always willing to accomodate to your needs or tastes and Tom will make drinks guaranteed to make you relax. If you want to get away from it all (including tv)...and enjoy world class diving...then Paya Bay is the best.
Fantastic retreat and service
Felt like being with close friends and family all week.warm and inviting. best location on Roatan. remote and peaceful. 2 private beaches. excellent diving w/their own dive masters. rooms with ocean balconies, classy and comfortable.delicious meals. only 15 other guests. Will be back!
If you're looking for an intimate, off the beaten path resort where you are treated like family and dive undisturbed by other dive boats, book your trip now for Paya Bay which sits on the East end of Roatan. We just returned from a one week all-inclusive stay in a cottage-like room at Paya Bay and thoroughly enjoyed the varied and wonderful meals cooked to order - no buffet lines here! The dive crew is friendly and knowledgeable of the area and follow the 'look don't touch' mantra. Unfortunately, we hear that dive resorts on the West end of Roatan regularly feed and harass for the entertainment of visiting divers. Our gear was rinsed and hung nightly for us - all we had to do was show up and enjoy all that the reefs have to offer. Be ready for sensory overload on some dives where there's so much to see you don't know where to look. Lovely people, great diving, good food and beautiful views.
My wife and I just returned from an NCL cruise which stopped at the island of Roatan. We heard reviews of Paya Bay but never imagined it would be this good. We had spent the days at our other ports near town, site seeing and decided to do an excursion on Roatan since we had never been to that island before. It is a long drive to get out to the resort but made for a good tour of the island. The location of the resort is sweet: sitting atop a bluff with two basically private beaches. We were the only people there from the cruise but they had 4 guests at the resort spending a week, whom we had lunch with.
We were on the Island of Roatan, a few months ago. I must say our stay at Paya Bay Beach Resort was one of the best we've ever had. Its a familly owned and operated resort. The food was autentic Island , or quite an elaborate selection of latin and American cuizine.
My trip to Paya Bay was fantastic! I went there last year, and have already made reservations to go next year. The service and sincere kindness of the owners and employees was wonderfully refreshing. The laid back atmosphere, fresh air, beautiful scenery, scuba diving/snorkeling, boat tour to neighboring cays, culture, bright sunshine, and so much more was everything I (or anyone) could want in a vacation. Truly an amazing place; you must go there!
