I dove three days in Cayos in Aug 2018. Beautiful, shallow and teeming with life. There are a lot of sand flats - with worm mounds going on forever - which themselves are great but many of the best sites - Lion's Head particularly -...More

This place is beautiful. If you can manage to find a local, go with them on this tour. They know the area well and will charge a lot less money than the big tour operators. I really enjoyed just getting out in the sun in...More

I'm slightly biased since I am married to a Garifuna man. But, regardless, this is a must do for anyone. The water is clear and gorgeous. It's just spectacular. Fortunately, we have family living across the bay in Sambo Creek, so we took the family...More

An amazing experience. Have been out for the day, but it doesn't compare to staying on a private island only yards from the beach. Such a relaxing and tranquil experience. Unspoiled beauty.

Melvin was our guide, was amazing. Took extra time out snorkelling as he knew that's what we really wanted to do. On the main island lunch was a little rustic, but a great experience to step out of your norm. The kids on the island...More

Come sail away to the islands of the Cayos Cochinos, on a 7-hour boat and snorkeling trip. This castaway's paradise of islands forms a marine biological reserve of white-sand beaches, colorful coral reefs and nice fishes.

We handed out as a gift the lantern we took for ourselves, since they lack light at night, everyone uses a hand lantern to walk around. But we only gave it to a kid who was helping us get around, not to everyone.

I'm not sure about Trujillo. It is definitely cheaper to contract a tour from Tela than Roatan. I went to Cayos Cochinos from La Ceiba. It was amazing! We toured all of the islands. Make sure you are able to look for the... More

Actually I've used boats leaving from Sambo Creek, near La Ceiba on mainland. Nevertheless if you want to leave from Roatan you can find information at the Bananarama Hotel in West Bay.
