I Need Advice on Roatan, Please

Hola Can anyone give me any recommendations on Isla Roatan off Honduras.
Where to anchor, customs, sightseeing, dangers, scam and anything else that might be helpful.

Thanks in advance James

Sailing is 80% boredom and 20% sheer terror so FIRSTMATE then go sailing. Life is a journey, not a destination.

Uhm . . . research the gun laws before checking in, maybe?

The Government of Honduras is strictly enforcing the law that requires a Honduran permit for the importation of firearms into Honduras.
Travellers must obtain a firearm importation permit from a Honduran Embassy, Consulate General, or Consulate prior to bringing firearms into the country.
Firearms that arrive without the requisite Honduran permit will be confiscated and the bearer will be prosecuted to the full extent of Honduran law.

no-see-ums were our only issue. plan on using some bug spray and anchoring away from the shore.

The message is the journey, we are sure the answer lies in the destination. But in reality, there is no station, no place to arrive at once and for all. The joy of life is the trip, and the station is a dream that constantly out distances us”. Robert Hastings, The Station
