Roatan
Port Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
The zip lining was awesome . And the monkey and wild birds park also cool. Shopping not so good. Mostly trinkets and poor folks selling whatever to survive. This is a poor island that has just started to get the cruise ships only in the last few years. It needs more time but will be worth it if some big companies can come in and help with infra-structure on shore. When the monsoon hit about halfway through the day we had to go back to the ship, there was nothing else to do after the zip lining. The area roads are terrible and potted. We got stuck twice trying to get out of spaces. The guide says they get 63 inches of rain a year and this was the monsoon season so it is understandable that this occurs in a poor country but they really need some better roads to handle a lot of tourists .

We shopped mostly on this day and hung around the bars and drank local beer, 2 for 5 dollars. And after paying the high prices on the ship, this seemed like a steal. Also 5$ Internet that actually was better than the dial up quality wifi on the ship. We had to tender in due to the shallow port. It was a long tender ride because the ship had to stay in an old river channel that was deep enough to take the 9 meter drafting ship.

3rd time in Cozi. It gets better every time. We took a taxi to the Money bar about 3 miles from the pier. Lazy day snorkeling , massages by the beach. Great food served waterside. There were 7 ships in port that day and the town handled it like a charm. 702 taxis getting people away to smaller venues quickly. One of my favorite ports.
