Even though its been awhile since I have been in Roatan, and stayed at Hobbies last year, I have still kept in touch with John and Sue. John was a great help recently getting food and supplies to the Majken Broby orphange in Gravel Bay. Even though I am in Texas, John so graciously coordinated getting the supplies they needed immedietly.
I encourage anyone thinking about visiting Roatan, stay at Hobbies Hideaway in Sandy Bay. John and Sue are terrific host and can arrange many island activities. I hope to be making it back to the island in Spring for another visit and will stay at Hobbies.
Also if you have any spare change or extra room in your luggage, take some items to the orphanage www.roatanchildrenshome.com keeps a updated list of current needs.
