Recent Bay Islands reviews
"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."Guest: banana donuts Date of Stay: January 2014 Review Submitted: February 17, 2014View listing
"Our accommodations at Infinity Bay was once again excellent! It is a beautiful place with all the amenities you will need. Fabulous pool, awesome beach where the snorkeling is amazing! There is lots to do at the resort, kayaking, snorkelling, water activities and just people watching will keep you entertained. Lots of day trips you can book as well. In the many years we have been to Roatan the food has been great! Lots of restaurants to choose from in both West Bay and West End. I would highly recommend this condo. The owners are great people to deal with. We will be back next year!"Guest: The Jo's Date of Stay: March 2014 Review Submitted: April 3, 2014View listing
"My wife and I stayed at La Colina for our honeymoon and couldn't be happier with our choice. The home and the views are stunning and are actually better than the pictures. The service from the staff at Roatan Property Management was exceptional. We'd recommend this home and the island of Roatan to anyone!"Guest: Roger and Julie Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: May 23, 2014View listing
"We absolutely loved our stay at La Diosa. The Villa has everything, so you never need to leave except to stock up on food and beverages. The fully-equipped kitchen made meal preparation easy, and the decor of the kitchen and living area is beautiful and great for entertaining. We loved the pool, reading in the pool lounge area, and watching the lovely sunsets every day. It was hard to tear ourselves away from the open air to go indoors and sleep at night; even the master shower on the second floor bathes you in air and sky. If you love swimming, kayaking and snorkeling, rent this Villa. You won't need to go anywhere else."Guest: Lora Date of Stay: March 2014 Review Submitted: March 23, 2014View listing
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.
