Mariposa Lodge is cozy place located within minutes of everything you need to see in Roatan. The owners, Sue and Mike, are warm and friendly, also approachable and well informed about the island and everything it has to offer. Staying at Mariposa's was like having our own little apartment a short walk away from shopping, restaurants, bars and most importantly, the beach with it's numerous water activities, ie snorkeling, diving, kayaking, boating, fishing, etc... All other popular sites are easily accessible by taxi, water taxi or bus. Although, I say "little apartment" the room itself was nicer and more spacious than a 4 1/2 star resort I stayed at previously. I believe, had we stayed at a resort, we would have missed out on all the beauty, wildlife and culture that makes Roatan a place to fall in love with. I did rate "Sleep Quality" a 3 out of 5 due to the roosters that adamantly try to wake you at 3 am, though they are inescapable throughout the island. And in all fairness, Mike did try to capture and relocate the main offender :) All in all, it was an unbelievable trip and when I go back (not "if"), I will be staying at Mariposa's again. Thank you, Mike and Sue, so much for everything!
