Can anyone please explain to me why airfare to Roatan is so darn expensive? I am looking at going to Roatan in the near future and every time I look into airfare it is always $700 or greater, on a rare occasion it is between 600-700, and this is from Washington DC! I have flown to Belize for $450 and to Costa Rica for $375. Does anyone know when the cheapest flights to the island are? I see the direct flights go through Houston. Anyone have success at getting a reasonabe price on airfare to Roatan? Gracious!
