Roatan is famous for world class scuba diving and snorkeling. The Marine Park protects and preserves the reef and it is in pristine condition. With just a 10 minute walk you are on West Bay Beach which is one of the best beaches in the Caribbean with beautiful white soft sand and plenty of bars and restaurants to enjoy. Being out on this end of the island allows enough space that you can still find a quite spot on the beach to relax and enjoy the crystal clear ocean.

There are two zip lining places just a few minutes away for that surface time excitement. And more on other parts of the island is you wish to drive to them. Famous Pristine Bay Golf Course designed by Pete Dye is only a 30 minute drive. You can do as much or as little diving and other activities that you want. If what you need is a quiet, lay in the hammock all day - with the ocean breezes sweeping over you, this is your place. For those that want night life listening to music in beach bars, dancing in the local disco, casino or just strolling the gift stores and more restaurants West End is 10 minutes away by either car or water taxi. Right here in West Bay with less people, beach bars and restaurants, jet skiing, parasailing, shopping are all available. With your stay here at PAPAYA PLACE AND BOTTOM TIME SCUBA

We will help you have not only a fun filled vacation with fabulous diving but rest and relaxation too. We take you diving when you want to go. Breakfast will be cooked to order at the time that you choose; either in your room or you can dine with others if you choose. Each Casita has it's own kitchenette and the apartment has a full kitchen.
