“What an amazing place! From it’s centralized location between the airport in Coxen Hole and West End/West Bay to the relaxing, yet never boring family-friendly atmosphere. They are also great scuba instructors! I cannot swim and have a bit of a fear of water, but Eric and Diana had me out there in 30 feet of water in no time (after the proper prep and instruction of course). I cannot wait to go back to get certified! My stay could have only been better if it could have been longer. I will be back!”

Wood Carving Artist Palanca

Roatan Artist    Pura Veda Dive Shop and Restaurant

Palanca noted that both of his parents were artists and with both of their genes in him, he is literally ?blowing up inside? with creativity. His mother was from Jamaica and wrote many pieces of music and songs for her local church. His father was from La Ceiba, Honduras where he wrote books. After growing up in La Ceiba Melvin set out for Roatan to look for his cousin Mora. Mora is better known to all of us in Sandy Bay as the local fisherman in his dug out canoe!

Roatan Art    Palanca    Wood Carving Roatan

Once he made it to Roatan he began to work for several large homes at odd jobs, digging wells, and gardening. In his spare time he walked the beaches and collected driftwood and odd shape branches. He would ponder them for a few days and then begin to carve. He says that the sea brings the wood already in these forms and that he just sees it and works with it. His favorite wood is hard mahogany drift wood. The longer it is in the sea the better it is to carve with! He also uses many of the islands fruitwoods and hardwoods.

That is absurd.

you to express something that another material does not allow you to."
