My suggestion is that you look for accomodations on West Bay for premier snorkeling with PADI dive operators.
The only negative effect we received from Hurricane Felix was from the reporting done by CNN and the Weather Channel that was incomprehensible in its false representation of reality. There were no15 ft waves as Sandi C reported ~ they were more like 2 inchs and the video of Aruba ran during the interview with Bruce Starr of Roatan went beyond negligent to reporting for the sake or sensationalism at the detriment of a poor nation and the hard earned holidays of thousands. Their acts were criminal and the governments of Honduras of Roatan should pursue retribution.
I have to ask if they (CNN & Weather Channel) presented such false representation in this instance, how much of their representations of the news is belivable and based on real fact. Not only were the revenues of Roatan and Honduras affected, the vacations of thousands were as well. People who the government of Honduras had evacuated to the mainland could have returned the next day to the continuation of their hard earned holidays if the news had been presented accurately.
People who haven't canceled their trips are asking how was the islands effected when they were only hit by a mild shower.
CNN failed to report the positive side of a poor developing nation taking very timely, preventative and positive action regarding evacuation of thousands of tourists as a precaution baseed on the data available to a safer area and at no expense to the tourist, who could have returned the next day and continued their holiday. But they elected to focus on one US military helicopter involvement in the evaucation and failed to tell the entire story about how it ended up at the service of tourists rather than military personnel.
CNN (and others like them) once again served their own greed at the deriment of the striving. They did it during Mitch and will not doubt do it again and do it every opportunity they have to negatively sensationalize when there is an entity that is not going to make them pay for their libelous actions.
Did they do any real followup reporting after Felix to tell the story of those who did have Felix destroy their homes and kill their families?
I'm sorry ~ I'm back and I'm ranting.
You know there is good and positive in the world but you would not know it via CNN.
