Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Board your air-conditioned transportation for a guided drive to the rugged, undeveloped East End area. Your guide will entertain you with the history of Roatan and explain its unique local culture. During your tour you will be encouraged to sample the fresh fruits that your guide carries in a basket, and you will learn about the abundant foliage and herbal plants indigenous to Roatan that are used for therapeutic and medicinal purposes. As you travel along the central ridge of the island, gaze out the window at the beautiful scenery, turquoise waters and coral reefs.

Arrive at Dixon Cove and board a boat for a lovely cruise through the historic waterways. Your island-style boat offers the opportunity to photograph the island's cays, red mangroves, and the visible shipwrecks of the "Tulung" and the "Alexandria." On a clear day the mountains of the mainland can be seen about 36 miles away. A brief time for independent souvenir shopping at Dixon's Cove is available when you disembark.

Then participate in a cultural presentation unlike any you've ever seen. Travel to Yubu, the Garifuna Village, and meet members of the Garifuna tribe, descendants of Black Carib Indians who settled here in 1797. Enjoy a performance of music and dance that stays true to Garifuna heritage. The tribe has maintained its lifestyle, culture and language to this day, and you will have an opportunity to learn a few greetings in the native language.

At the completion of your excursion, enjoy a scenic drive past dramatic vistas en route to the pier.
