"My husband and I went to Roatan for our honeymoon. First of all, the condo is own by private owners, they were absolutely wonderful. Always available to answer any question. So helpful and friendly, I loved how they treated us. The condo was fabulous, it was exactly what we wanted. The resort it self is very pretty and clean. I highly recommend this place and especially renting trough Gilles, the owner. Thanks Gilles for all you did for us!"Guest: yuri Date of Stay: October 2014 Review Submitted: November 9, 2014View listing
"Wonderful home. So glad I found this gem. Hotels on the island are pricey and I wanted something more private. This fit the bill perfectly. The managers met us and took us to the home. Internet was not possible as the power was out on the island that day for a few hours but she came back as soon as it was back on. The AC was perfect. The amenities were abundant. The palapa could use a little work - there are a few holes and the staircase going to it seems a little wobbly. There was a grill that we wanted to use but ran out of time, the pool was gorgeous at night. I missed having a broom as I brought some sand in from morning runs in the beach. Also the toilet on the first floor did not function correctly - it ran all the time. It has been brought to the managers attention and I'm sure it will be fixed quickly. I also recommend taking the trash out quickly - there were a lot of ants the entire time even thou we never left anything out or dirty. The home is right off the beach. Perfect location to watch the sunset from the dock every night. This is a perfect place for a quiet romantic get away or a week party with friends. I would recommend having a vehicle - there are a few places that are super close but it's fun to explore the whole island! The only negative aside from the broken toilet and the ants was they wanted to show the home twice while we were there. It is on the market and while I understand the need to bring people in this was not told to me ahead of time and was a little disruptive. It was so great I am renting it again in four weeks! Wonderful home, wonderful island, amazing time!"Guest: Tamara L. Date of Stay: March 2014 Review Submitted: April 6, 2014View listing
"First time visitor to Infinity Bay Condo 504 and it was delightful. Owner Kathy was more than thorough and detailed...got to give her an "atta-girl". Of all the places located on the beaches at West Bay, I really believe Infinity tops them all. I have stayed in other locations along West Bay for comparison. What was truly surprising was the genuine considerations coming for the staff. They were very kind, very attentive, and would respond to requests immediately. They felt like family after spending over 2 weeks there. Juan Carlos the beach security guard was like a personal valet. There were 4 of us...2 couples, and we felt very comfortable in the 2 bedroom unit. Lots of good restaurants along the beach...probably our favorite was the Argentine restaurant. My personal favorite was Kismet. Key Lime pie to die for...got the recipe. Overall, a great stay for two weeks. Highly recommended."Guest: Ken Date of Stay: November 2014 Review Submitted: November 22, 2014View listing
"This was our second stay at Infinity Bay, and first at this wonderful condo! A spacious layout in a perfect location with views of the pool and ocean...not too far from the beach, not too close to the bar / music for it to be too loud. Did we mention the "comfy king size bed", 2 balconies, and 2 baths both with showers! We enjoyed the full kitchen as an option to dining out everyday. The dryer was great to, well, dry things out and warm them up before our next snorkel in the aquarium just a few steps to the beach! Dana, the owner, was informative, relaxed, a pleasure to deal with, and made "the arrangements" effortless. All in all..just perfect! We look forward to our next visit to Roatan / Infinity Bay and will definitely be staying at VRBO rental #237222"Guest: Theresa G. Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: May 26, 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.
