I am starting to plan a trip for 2 weeks to Roatan and was hoping for some advice and information (I think there is a CaptainVans who is from West End out here who's in the know?).
1. We're all about the local people and learning about the culture etc...we don't want a big busy place of tourists. Any recommedations? $500 US a week (not including the local tax) is about the max. we want to pay for accomodations.
I found a couple places but would like to hear your comments
- Casa Calicos
- Judy's Fantasea
- Georgphis Tropical
2. I'd like to be able to have meals at my cabin but if we want to go out to a restaurant or to a bar at night for a couple drinks we'd like to be able to walk there (as well as the beach etc.) What's a typical price range for restaurants? I understand the food is really good and varied. How much is a beer in the bar, how much is it to buy a case in the shop? Sorry, I really like to know how much stuff costs before I get there as I don't care for surprises. :-)
3. Can you comment on stores for groceries - expensive? variety?
4. Are there areas where we really shouldn't be without our own transportation such as scooters? We'd be happy to take the local bus, water taxi etc.
Thanks so much in advance! I would really appreciate anyone's feedback.
