Fun; but I was disappointed because I couldn't drive - the seats didn't adjust and I couldn't reach the gas pedal (I'm 5'3).

We easily found our guide at the port. He took us to his car and drove us around the Island talking about the history and culture. Showed us the villages and different areas of the island. We went up onto the top of the "mountain" to take pictures of the port area (Coxen Hole). We were destined for a buggy experience but were doing a tour first. The guide had to delay getting to the buggies because the owner/operator of the buggies had another group out. He was located at Sol Y Mar Beach Club. Nice beach area. Newer buildings. Desolate. When it was time to do our buggy excursion, we ended up following their van to the location. He had 3 buggies on site, two of which were broken. We ended up following the van on the terrible dirt roads, past the overflowing garbage dump, and eventually got to a beach area. From there the buggy guide stood on the side of the buggy and told me where to drive, which was just a few hundred yards further. This lead us to a large open area with a few mud holes and puddles/standing water. So the buggy experience wasn't a beach tour or other site-seeing trip. It was a dirt road trip to an open area to drive around in some mud puddles. On the way a 4th buggy previously left at the beach area broke down. Finally, ours stopped running and wouldn't stay running. We eventually got in the van and finished our return trip back to the car. We were offered a stop at a local establishment for drinks but opted to just get back to the car and eventually back to the port. The tour guide stopped at a local gas station so we could get some local fare. It was nice to eat what the locals eat and not be in a chain restaurant or large tourist restaurant. If you want a private tour of Roatan, contact Elias Mejia Santos on Facebook. He was nice, safe and accommodating. Can be trusted. Your search should find Elias with profile entries as former translator, gardener, canopy tour guide, etc... Read Less

This was NOT Roatan. There was not a choice for Trujillo. We were only the 4th cruise ship to port at Trujillo so the whole experience is very new and pretty primitive. However, everybody who went into Trujillo that we talked to loved it. Everybody drove their own ATV, the time on the ATVs was about 2 hours and my husband said it was very exciting. They forded 2 rivers and a bunch of streams. It is important to have bug spray for this one. It was truly a very untouched jungle area that they went through. The beach was nice but by the time this group got there they had run out of most of the lunch items with only rice and broccoli left. The shore excursion folks back on the boat did refund 25% of the cost because of that. Read Less

The port here was absolutely hectic unorganized & crazy, to be honest a little scary. BUT that was because at the last minute we had to port at coxen hole in instead of mahogany bay (some kind of wind problem they said) also I made my reservation for 1:30 when I should have made it for the morning (due to the fact that they were 2 hours behind our time) had to find my own way to the sight, but they were happy to make the change for me when we arrived. We had so much fun on this tour. I mean the buggys were slow, but the experience made up for it. The private beach you get to stop at is something I will never forget. Oh make sure you pay the extra $5 for the mud and wear LOTS of sunscreen & bug spray. They have a monkey at the shop that is so cool!! we decided to take a cab to Little French Key after our ride & our cab driver was a complete JERK! I have never wanted to complain so much in my life as I did about how horrible he was. Anyhow Little French Key is phenomenal!! I was to go back to Roatan just for this place!! Read Less
