Recent Bay Islands reviews

  • Very impressed with Infinity Bay and our accommodations.

    "We really loved Roatan Island and our stay at Infinity Bay Resort. This was our first time there and using VRBO. Andrea made the whole process so easy. She patiently answered all our questions in a timely manner. The condo was exactly as described and pictured - very clean. Bed very comfortable. We liked that this condo was in the back of the property; it was quiet. We also did not feel like it was a long walk to the water. It was also much closer to the minimart and a couple of good restaurants. We would recommend eating breakfast at Celeste's and dinner at Nice & Spicy (noodle place). We are looking forward to our next trip to Infinity Bay."

  • Awesome Home and Location

    "Best vacation ever! We were three couples and two individuals staying in this luxurious 5 bedroom, 5 bath home right on the beach. We never felt overcrowded, even with all eight of us in the common area (although 6 in the plunge pool got a little cozy). The house had all the modern conveniences of home (including satellite TV and Wifi service) with a full kitchen with dishwasher and a laundry room (so you can pack lighter and just run a load of wash mid-week). The best part is the location, right on the beach with a private dock 20 feet from the back door. The reef and the breaking waves are about 200 yards offshore, and you can use the provided snorkeling equipment and kayaks to go out and see the beautiful corals and tropical fish. The back deck and the plunge pool make a nice place to end the day watching the sun set over the Caribbean Sea. In the morning they make a nice place to sit and listen as the island comes to life with kids going to school and fishermen boating along the reef, and all were quick with a hello and a wave. Pirates View is within a quick taxi ride of West End and Anthony’s Key for the shoping, bars and restaurants (You can walk to Anthony’s Key, but the cab ride is easier and safer considering there are no sidewalks along the road). West Bay is a slightly longer cab ride (around 10 minutes), but has more of the “resort beach” atmosphere with shops offering paddle boarding, parasailing and wind surfing along the pristine white sand."

  • Excellent place for a great Roatan vacation

    "We spend 8 nights at DG Coral Vista in July 2014, and the experience was great. The house is in the perfect location; close enough to the beach (5 minutes walk) and places to eat and far enough for the noise. The ocean view from the balcony is breathtaking, making totally worth it climbing the 107 steps to get to the house (very easy to climb). The house is very comfortable; fully equipped kitchen, very comfortable beds, and 4 AC that keep it cool during the hot summer days. A highly recommended place for a family vacation, and I will totally choose DG Coral Vista instead of renting a room in the crowded and busy resorts in West Bay. It worked really well for our family and we have there everything we need to have a fantastic vacation. The owners and property manager were in permanent contact with us before and during our stay, always willing to help and assist us on whatever we need. Gabriela was fantastic in providing us with all the information we needed (arrival, transportation, good places to eat, other logistics, etc.) and in making sure that we have everything we needed to enjoy our time at DG Coral Vista. Definitely, I highly recommended place to stay if you decide to spend your vacations at West Bay, Roatan."

Bay Islands Travel Tips

The Bay Islands are a number of Caribbean Islands to the east of the Central American country of Honduras. Lying in the beautiful blue waters of the Caribbean Sea, this unspoiled tropical paradise offers a laid-back vacation spot with plenty of optional activities. The best known of the Bay Islands is Roatan which remains largely uncommercialized, although it has excellent restaurants and diving. Other islands include Utila, Guanaja and Cayos Cochinos.

Bay Islands Vacation Rentals Offer the Perfect Home Away From Home

Those looking to enjoy an island-style retreat will love a spacious vacation rental. Typically painted in pastel island colors and set in tropical gardens amidst bougainvilla, palms and exotic plants, many vacation homes have private swimming pools. Imagine waking to the sound of the ocean and having breakfast on the verandah while planning the day’s activities. With your own private vacation home, you can take an afternoon siesta, watch the sunset with a drink on the terrace and generally do as you please. The spacious bedrooms, bathrooms and cool living areas make it the ideal choice for romantic breaks and honeymoons, and for families who want their own space.

Things to do on the Bay Islands of Honduras

The activities offered on Bay Islands are varied and extensive. Water-based activities include kayaking in the calm waters or sailing, fishing, snorkeling and diving. The Bay Islands are in one of the most extensive reef systems in the world with excellent visibility. See many types of soft and hard corals, sponges, beautifully colored fish and marine life. Relax on the sandy beach or go searching for exotic seashells. Horseback riding along the water’s edge is a relaxing way to experience these idyllic shores, or head inland to explore some of the jungle areas. Take an eco-tour with a guide to see the natural wildlife of Bay Islands or take a dolphin-watching trip. Glass bottom boats are great ways to experience the diverse marine life on the reef. You can even island-hop or go cave exploring.

Bay Islands Travel Options

The Bay Islands of Honduras are very convenient and easy to get to, being just a two-hour flight from Miami. Sol Air connects Miami with San Pedro Sula on the mainland twice daily and there are direct connections to the islands of Guanaja, Roatan and Utila.

Taca airlines operate direct flights from both Miami and Houston to Roatan and offer connecting flights from Los Angeles, New Orleans and San Francisco. Once on the islands, it is easy to walk, cycle or use a local taxi or boat service to get around.

Places to Visit from Bay Islands Resorts

Roatan is a picturesque and unspoiled island with a hilly interior covered with lush greenery. The main beaches are West Bay beach rentals with its white coral sand beach, Camp Bay and Paya Bay. Roatan is known as a world-class diving destination and the reefs, the second largest after the Great Barrier Reef, are protected as a national treasure. The Cayman’s Trench sees the reef suddenly drop to a depth of thousands of meters and the occasional whale shark may be seen. Closer to shore, beginners can dive in the protected lagoon waters which have no strong currents. At the end of the day, head for the dockside bars and restaurants, and enjoy a cocktail while viewing the spectacular sunset. Roatan also has a small museum and botanical garden.

Mainland Honduras makes a great day out. Arrange a visit to the ancient Mayan city of Copán. The impressive ruins depict the amazingly advanced culture of the Mayans, centuries ago. River rafting is also a fun activity and a great way to navigate the wildlife of the tropical rainforest.

Weather and Climate in Honduras

The weather on the Bay Islands is different to that on mainland Honduras. The islands enjoy tropical sunny days with heavy rain showers at times. The wettest months are September, October, January and February. The islands’ high season is from February to April when visitors escape from the cold winter temperatures further north. The average water temperature is a balmy 29 C which is 84 F.
