This little shop has hand made items made from recycled materials. If you want something hand made, not from China, this is the place to go. Really worth the time to visit and buy their products.

Roatan for a day (4 Replies)
Yes, we are cruisers arriving for the day, but we have traveled enough to know that cruise tours are not the way to go. We have booked a private "make it up" tour lasting 4-6 hours and are looking for some suggestions. There will be 5 adults and one has limited mobility. We want to see the most picturesque areas, visit unique stores and shops, snorkel for free (with our own equipment), and get a good sense of the island culture. Without trying to see it all, here are some of the places we're...More

For free snorkeling with your own equipment, probably West Bay Beach is best as the reef is very accessible there.
