Roatán Island Prices & Travel Costs

Last Updated: Dec 2021

You probably only first heard about Roatán Island recently, which is because the small tourism boom going on there is less than a decade old. The island has long been known for excellent scuba diving and snorkeling, but since cruise ships started coming the whole place is changing quickly. At least for now, it’s mostly dirt paths and beach shacks, though maybe not forever.
