Bad Experience in Roatan, 2003
View and Read Comments on
If you are thinking about going to Roatan scuba diving, please
think twice. It took 4 planes to get there (the last 2 planes had
no air conditioning). I sat beside a local on one of the flights
and he warned me to be very careful because of the crime. He said
there is a murder every day on the mainland. Roatan is a true
third-world country with poverty and ! houses built on stilts. The
diving was dangerous and for the advanced diver. The waves were so
high, they use a life-saving donut to pull you back to the boat
once you come up. The reefs were great but the fish life was just
so-so. The resort (Fantasy Island) had a pretty beach but not much
else. I couldn't get the internet or phones to work for 2 days. My
husband and I both had bad diarrhea the entire time we were there.
I have traveled all over the Caribbean and been on over 65 logged
dives. I definitely would NOT recommend Roatan. Please feel free
to contact me if you want more details regarding Fantasy Island or
