We booked an independent tour through Victor Bodden Tours and would use them again.

Everything was great and our guides were very well educated and knowledgeable. We did the Fun n Sun tour which showed us some of the island, went through their monkey encampment which also housed different animals as well. We then went to Bananarama Resort on West Bay Beach where we had guaranteed lounge chairs. We spent 2 hours there then were picked up and transferred back to the dock in time to board the ship for departure.

This excursion did not allow us time to do any shopping but were able to pick up a few things at the monkey camp and at a lookout at the highest point on Roatan.

Bodden Tours has many different excursions available and they were very professional and worth the money.

Here we again did an independent tour with VIV Tours for cave tubing. There guides were great and we did not even have to carry our own tubes to the river which was a 30 minute hike.

They picked us up at the pier for a 1 hour ride to the cave tubing site. The water was somewhat cold (around 75 degrees I would guess) but once you were over the initial dip it felt really good.

Tubing through the caves was quite an experience that I am so glad to have done. It is very peaceful floating down the river listening to the guide giving us a lot of information. At the end of the float we went back to the beginning where there are restrooms if you wish to change out of your wet cloths. Our tour included a lunch which we did not expect then we all loaded up and went back to the pier to board the ship.

Again we did not have much time to do any shopping prior to the ship departing.

I guess we will just have to plan another cruise and do nothing but shopping in these ports.

I would definitely book VIV Tours again and recommend them for the cave tubing.
