Our cruise ship landed at Mahogany Bay, which is a sanitized tourist trap constructed by a cruise line on Roatan Island. It is full of shops selling expensive Harley Davidson gear, bamboo garments, tanzanite jewelry, folk art, etc. Having been warned about Mahogany Bay, we registered for the excursion to Maya Key. By 8:30 AM, we had boarded a boat... More

Very nice tropical island location! Great outdoor lunch, nice swimming pool, beautiful beach, gorgeous snorkeling, a short island history museum, and lots of rescued animals. We went as an excursion from Anthony's Key Resort on the other side of the island. Here we watched the parrots, sea lions, and other animals; swam in the fish-shaped pool; ate a barbeque lunch...

This has to be one of the most beautiful places and needs to be at the top of the list if you are visiting Isla Roatan. We recently went on a cruise and out of all of the excursions this one took top spot with the whole family! The snorkeling is beautiful and they have snorkeling guides that can really... More

We took this excursion as a part of our trip on Carnival. It was fantastic. The snorkeling was unbelievable. The lunch was very good. The beaches, the animals and birds were beautiful. The staff was top notch and extremely attentive and helpful. We could have stayed there for days.

What a great time had by all!!! I really didn't know what to expect from Honduras. What a gorgeous place, amazing. We arrived at the pier and we took an amazing boat ride to Maya Key. The ocean and surrounding areas was so beautiful, the ride over took my breath away. We arrived at the private island and we were... More

We took this excursion with our 3 year old daughter and our 7 month old son. We all loved it! The island has a lot of little things to do and it was just right for our family. The beach and swim area weren't huge, but it was perfect for our 3 year old. The beach was protected by the... More

We wanted a little beach time without a long boat ride from our cruise ship. This was 5 minutes away from the port and was a clean little private island set up for tourists to relax. There is a fairly good size beach and a beautiful long pier with a thatched roof at the end that looks over the beautiful... More

We had done a 7 day cruise and this was our favourite stop! The monkey encounter was our favourite! They had little rescued monkeys that we were able to hold, get pictures with feed, FOR FREE! The beach was gorgeous, crystal clear water, nice white sand. There were other rescued animals as well, Jaguars, parrots, and many other bird species.... More
