It looks like all the other posts are people actually vacationing for an extended period of time in Roatan. For us, it will be a stop on our cruise the last week in October. The last carribean cruise I took, i met a bunch of people in Belize who had just come from Roatan and they LOVED IT. Here is my question: I am a beach lover, my husband is not a beach lover, nor is he a shopper. Sometimes he will go get a bite to eat and a beer in air conditioning while I sun myself, so if there is a beach that has something else right nearby, that is great. Neither of us are divers. If you had just 6 or 8 hours in Roatan, what would you do? (Please include best way to get there from port, cost, etc, etc). I'd like to spend at least an hour or two on an outrageously beautiful beach, then get to see some of the highlights of the island, perhaps via taxi?? Help, its coming up quickly. p.s. this is a change on our itinerary due to recent damage to the pier in Mexico (last hurricane), so it is a VERY pleasant surprise for us. Sorry for being a little lengthy, but no sense in asking for recommendations without giving you an idea of our likes and dislikes.
