"Guanaja is a beautiful part of the world, and Wilmont Bay is perfectly suited to experience it at it's best. The snorkeling at the door step is among the best we've experienced, as are the sunsets—two green flashes in seven days! Travel in Guanaja is mostly by boat, which is an adventure in its own right, and Jorge will happily and skillfully get you anywhere you would want to go.
While you are not alone at Wilmont bay, one could hardly be call it crowded. In addition to the two Cabins, there's just a few private homes in the area. The cabins are well stocked with all the necessities for an independent traveler (full kitchen, shower, fans, even an air conditioning if you need it) and are quite comfortable. Both Cindy and Jorge are wonderful hosts, and will make every effort to ensure you have a great trip.
Bonaca is a fascinating and unique city built on two small Cayes--well worth the visit included in your stay, as is the near by waterfall (not included, but quite affordable). A trip along the coast by kayak is also quite rewarding—depending on the day, you may not see another soul.
This isn't the place to go if you want to lounge on the beach (sandflies will not allow that) and be served hand and foot (this isn’t a resort, which for us was a large part of the draw). But if you are looking to relax, explore a near empty coastline, and enjoy healthy reefs just steps away, this is a great choice. For us, it surpassed all expectations.
P.S.—Though you can get along just fine speaking only English, at least since Mitch, many mainland Hondurans now live and work in the area. As such, we found a bit of Spanish went along way in certain circumstances. So we’d suggest, if it is not your first language, you brush up."
