Tour of the animal sanctuary and city tour.
Sail Date: July 2019
Tour of the animal sanctuary and city tour. Ended at a private beach. Lovely tour ($65) for the entire day. Saw a lot of the island. Sanctuary was way better than I thought it could be and we got to hug sloths :-)

We enjoyed interacting with the sloths, monkeys, birds, and iguanas. After we returned from the tour, we spent time in Mahogany Bay and loved the beach area.

The island tour gives a good overview of the island. The long stops at the Hummingbird House and a remotely located resort hotel were hardly worth it. We had opted for the Beach excursion on a previous visit and would recommend that. Nice beach and great snorkeling. Getting to the beach about 30 min. away provides an island tour in itself.

Great tour of the island learned a lot about the culture and the people. Had time to shop and then we hit the beach which was beautiful calm water. There was a bar and restaurant right there and we were able to enjoy a meal right on the beach. A good mix of culture and fun in the sun would definitely do this excursion again. Read Less

Our driver/guide, Courtney, took us all around the island and gave us in depth information about life there. He was a great guide & took us to the Monkey & Sloth Sanctuary and a mangrove swamp tour. Like so many of the countries in the islands & Central America, there is a lot of poverty and a lack of opportunities for the residents, which is rather depressing to see. The island is lovely & the winter weather is enviable to a person from the north. Read Less

Travelled to West End village for a stop for shopping, then to an eco-park for a walk in the jungle on suspension bridges and ended the day at a beach break. The beach break was disappointing - all the costs for food, drink, umbrella rentals were very high and no amenities were included with our excursion price. This excursion used a small bus with a very narrow aisle. It was quite tight seating, also. Read Less

Real Deal Tours was excellent. Johan delivered just the tour we wanted seeing the island with stops at Roatan Rum Company, Chocolate Factory and other venues. The price was right and I wish we could have found independent providers at our other ports of call who were as good as him. We started by going right out the gate of the facility to find the sign and people wearing the company name and logo. We rode all over in air conditioned vehicle with driver and guide who were very well informed and capable. Read Less
