Loved Roatan the little I saw of it and would love to revisit for a longer stay. West Bay Beach is a taxi ride away and this is where most holidaymakers stay. It rained on my visit so Beach plan was cancelled.
Souvenirs here are mainly hand made, wood carvings, tree carvings and locally produced hot sauces. The Port has a lot of little shops, but don't be afraid to venture outside of the Port shops. A taxi will cost you around 20 USD for a trip into town and the taxi driver will recommend the cheaper shops, where there are no commissions for the Cruise. A lot of people on the cruise said they would not feel safe venturing further out, but personally I had cabin fever and could not wait to get off and see what this place offered.
And get your passport stamped, they will ask for a small donation that will go to a good cause.
