We docked here on the Royal Carribean. We noticed that not a lot of passengers departed the boat in the morning. The port is very small and almost half of the port is under construction. The island is small and has high hills of greenery.

As we departed the port area into the taxi areas, we were swarmed by tour guides or taxi drivers haggling us, asking where we were going. The vendors were pretty aggressive, waving me to come over to speak with them. I wanted to walk out into the town on my own so I can just see the locals. As we departed the port area, there are a group of 10 to 15 men standing at the exit, holding signs for excursions. I had a man follow me and told me that there is nothing to see outside of the port, I would need him to drive me into the Town where there are tourist things to do. As we were walking away, the man continued to follow and try to make conversation.

As we continued to walk and talk, I noticed another 2 males following this one guy. It felt like we were being guarded. This made my girlfriend really uncomfortable.

If you are docked here on a cruise, I would booked a taxi in advance and go as a big group. Being 2 persons did not feel safe being there. I would suggest hiring a taxi driver inside the port as they are cleared to be there. While the men outside of the gate may be cheaper, you cant guarantee your return trip to the port.

Unlike Belize(due to the coral reefs) where you have to tender in, you can dock at Roatan easily. There is a small port shopping area where there are a few souvenirs and of course a Diamond International.

We had not arranged an excursion from the ship and decided to do our own thing. Not many shops in the port area, and the ones there were the usual overpriced tat. Outside of the port complex we were constantly hassled by vendors. It was incessant. Not their fault as they were only trying to earn a living. But from what we saw, Roatan is a very impoverished island a poor infrastructure, clinging on to tourism as the main industry.

First time into this port. spent some free time here after returning from excursion. the Port is very small with only handful of stores. all for souvenirs, and restaurants. Make sure you bring your passport here, there's a small booth to stamp your passport here.

We visited this port in March 2020 and loved it. Some tourist shops - a bit expensive but lovely items to buy. But the highlights were a nature walk with amazing views and a lovely beach with clear blue water and clean white sand right on the port. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Well worth a visit even if you don't go out on any excursions.

This was my favorite port on our cruise. Prices seemed to be a little lower here than the other ports where we stopped. There was a large variety of items to chooses from. We only got gelato since we ate so much on the ship.

As others have said, be careful. Once out of the gates, you WILL be pestered and followed on your walk. The people are in the business of aggressively trying to sell you their services of finding things....and that means all things! The town is poor and people are doing what they need to do to capitalize on the cruise ship tourists. Senior citizens were being pestered the most. My major issue was being aggressively solicited by street prostitutes. What was amazing is that it was a hundred yards or so from the cruise port walking exit. Even after saying no, they continued and walked after me. Never had this experience in a cruise port. If Honduras could clean this up, many more passengers would walk and spend money. The country should look at how Cozumel handles the ships and passengers!

Had a great experience looking for jewelry in their store, with the help of Cindy Good who got us in the store, and Jessica Flowers who helped with finding different things to look at, and then the Manager, Luella Bodden, who helped us worked out the final details. We are very happy with our purchase and with the price we agreed on. We have purchased many pieces of jewelry over the many years we have traveled and always been satisfied with Diamond International
