roatan for New Years???

I've been wanting to come to Roatan for a while now as we are avid snorkellers and have heard it is awesome. We are looking to go away for New Year's Eve 2008. I have heard this is rainy season in Roatan and I don't want to have rain every day and not be able to enjoy my trip - rain at night is alright though.... We are also seriously considering Curacao as they have good snorkelling too. Can anyone enlighten me as to what we could expect weather wise over the New Year's in Roatan?? It is a tossup between the two resorts but Roatan would be easier on my wallet LOL.... I was leaning to the Henry Morgan in Roatan if that makes a difference...

New Years timeline IS the rainy season. Odds are you will at least have some rain. We have been numerous times and the worst, weather wise, has been Christmas time for us. Roatan is such a beautiful island and if you are going to go specifically to be above the water, you may want to consider going during dry season. However, you know how weather goes....it could be great!

As much fun as I've had on Roatan over the Xmas/NY holidays, I have to confirm what the last poster said. I always stay a minimum of 3 weeks over that period. In that way, I'm generally guaranteed at least one really nice week. The way it has played out so far is about 7 days of horrible weather, 7 days of decent weather and 7 days of very nice weather, but not necessarily in that order. I'm a diver, so yes, I do prefer good weather but it's not as important to me as it would be to a snorkeller.
