“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!”

Roatan Tropical Island Vacations

Roatan island style website featuring articles and stories of adventures, yarns and photography, this is how we invite you to experience the island. Roatan readers grasp a sense of what it means to escape to pristine beaches, coral reefs and participate in the islands culture.

Copan Traveling Roatan

Copan is a town in the northwestern corner of Honduras where there once was a thriving Mayan culture along the Copan River. It is a great place to visit featuring hot springs, a wonderful bird sanctuary, and of course, the Mayan Ruins. In addition, the charming Copan village itself is not to be missed. You can stroll the cobblestone streets for shopping and dining or just relax with a book in the beautiful plaza in the center of Copan. Copan is the name by which the site has been known since 1576.

There are two ways to get from Roatan to the mainland. You can fly or take the ferry. This article will focus on the ferry as it is the most economical. The Roatan Ferry (Galaxy Wavey) makes two roundtrips daily. Roatan departures are at 7:00 am and 2:00 pm. It is recommend that you check-in one hour before departure to check luggage and purchase tickets. The ferry crossing takes about 70-75 minutes. One way fare from Roatan to La Ceiba is L 524 (about US $30) or you can get a First Class ticket for five or six dollars more (L 624). Roundtrip tickets are available but cost the same.

First class means you get to sit inside instead of outside on the deck. Deck seating is covered and comfortable so unless it is raining, there is no need to pay extra for 'first class.' Advance reservations are not necessary so you can decide whether to sit inside or out at your time of departure. Taking the morning ferry will result in the best options for traveling to Copam once you reach the mainland. If you take the afternoon ferry, you will have to spend the night in La Ceiba or San Pedro Sula before continuing on the Copan. The ocean ferry crossing can be rough depending on the weather but most people will tell you a bumpy ride is more likely on the afternoon trip.
