Exploring Roatan

  1. Do we need to rent a car?

    While there is no need to rent a car, exploring the island beyond West End becomes a lot easier with a readily accessible vehicle. If you feel like you would like to explore but would like something a little more adventurous, there are also mopeds or scooters available for rent in West End. If you plan on staying in or around West End, there are also taxis and water taxis available for hire.

  2. What kind of food is available?

    There are many restaurants within a 5 - 15 minute walk of Tanglewood Villa, including Thai food, BBQ, noodle shops and of course, whatever the local fishermen have brought ashore that day.

    There are also some local grocery stores close to the villa, as well as a larger grocery store in Coxenhole (main town on the island) if you have access to a vehicle.

  3. I want to go diving - what's the best way to do that?

    Some of the best diving in the world can be found right here in Roatan, and there are many dive shops along the length of the shore, but some shops require certification. To learn more about this, please visit the PADI website, or the site of our favorite dive shop, West End Divers. 

    They can be found here:

  4. What is the best way to stay in contact with those back home?

    Cell phones run fairly cheap in Roatan, as do the phone charges for calling out internationally. You can set up a pay-as-you-go cell phone at a few vendors in West End.

    Internet cafes are also a great way to keep in touch with friends and family, as well as being a little more reliable than a phone call. Internet cafes are cheap and found within West End. 

    If you choose to bring your own device (laptop, cell phone, tablet, etc) there is the option of wireless internet within the villa. This is available at an extra charge, so please contact us for details.

  5. I see a lot of diving activities but I don't dive - what else is there to do?

    West End is wonderful for having a wide array of things to do. To list them all for you would be next to impossible, but some of our favorite activities and sights are:

    Gumbalimba Park - a wildlife reserve with guided tours that can give you a better understanding of the jungle that surrounds you in Roatan

    Ziplining - for those seeking a good adventure, this takes you through the canopy and gives riders a great view of the ocean and the island itself

    Glass Bottom Boat - if you want to get a glimpse of the underwater world but aren't a fan of getting up close and personal, this is for you

    Horseback Riding - there are companies that can take you up into inland Roatan where you will ride your very own horse through the thick jungle

    Besides those, there are plenty of fun and exotic activities to be discovered in Roatan. There are many booths set up along the beaches that offer many activites, including water sports and fishing tours, and everyone is sure to find something they enjoy.

    Try hailing a water taxi along one of the many long docks, and ask the driver what they reccommend - everyone is very friendly and helpful in this small-time island.
