We tendered in to an area where we then caught a van to get to the beach.
Since my son and I were very sunburn from the previous day at Costa Maya (our own fault, I know), we had no interest in sitting in the sun. We found a delightful little shaded area off to the side of the beach with hammocks and chairs where we leisurely let the day go by.
The staff at this area was also very hospitable and attentive, though we probably would not go back to this area as the beach was just not as attractive as the others we had visited. It was very "shelly" and if you did not have your water shoes or sandals on, it was quite difficult to get around. The sand was more coarse all around also.
We walked a little way to get to the cabs from port, but when we found them they whisked us off to the resort very quickly, and for only $2 apiece!
Jamie, the resort proprietor, was extremely hospitable and helpful in every aspect. He was friendly and his staff was terrific.
We were led to the area our family would stay for the afternoon and it was quite comfortable, with ample shade and chairs and tables.
Food and drinks were aplenty and we indulged freely. There was never a time where we were without a drink. Staff is extremely attentive in tending to your every need.
The kids played in the water most of the day and enjoyed the kayaks very much.
We would definitely go back to visit Nohoch Kay again in the future.
This was SO MUCH FUN!
Prior to catching the van to take us out to Wild Tours, we visited Senor Frogs for a drink. We were a bit surprised at how expensive it was, but it wasn't anything that wouldn't make us come back.
Upon arriving at Wild Tours, we were met by Roberto who gave us the run-down of what to expect along the way.
We knew in advance to bring clothes that we could throw away. I also brought our own bandanas (U.S. flag-type ones) so we could pick each other out easily.
The ride was rough at times, but it was worth it. We got dirty, wet, muddy, dusty, and it was GREAT!
Visiting the cavern was a bonus as we got to jump in and cool off and see the beautiful vegetation and more wildlife, particularly, the bats flying and hanging overhead.
We got to hold a 4-year old crocodile, saw a golden eagle, a monitor lizard, and a beautiful owl.
A great experience for the money!
I woke before sunrise so I could see us pull into port at Mahogany Bay. Absolutely stunning!
The two "shipwrecks" you see off to the side really give you a certain feel, which is hard to explain until you see it.
The port is absolutely beautiful and the shops were very nice and vendors were not pushy at all.
We booked Gumbalimba Park & Tabyana Beach through NCL and this excursion did not disappoint.
The park was beautiful, with all kinds of wildlife and vegetation. We saw iguanas, macaws, and other birds, and of course the monkeys that flit from person to person. Our boys loved this and the monkeys were well-behaved.
We then went to Tabyana Beach, which was probably one of the best beaches we've been to.
The water was beautiful. Our oldest snorkeled for the first time and saw colorful fish in abundance, and coral too.
The sand was like powder and felt so wonderful to walk through.
The lunch that was provided was very, very tasty and hit the spot.
We were sad to have to leave Roatan and would definitely go back.
