By Ferry from the mainland

 “Not all those who wander are lost.” – J. R. R. Tolkien


If you are coming from the mainland one of the easiest ways to come over is by Ferry. You are allowed to bring a lot of goods at no charge on it as well so if you go on a large shopping spree it is a great way to bring stuff back to the island. The ferry leaves from La Ceiba and lands mid-island near the Mahogony bay cruise ship port. 


The ferry is a modern hydrofoil and always leaves on time which is more than can be said for most of the flights in and out of Roatan. The morning ones tend to be an easier ride as the waves can get choppy later in the day and some people get sea sick. 


The fare is $36 each way and you can pay $5 extra to go in first class where you are in an enclosed room, given a bottle of water, and get to watch a portion of some movie.  Children under 5 go free and up to 10 years are charged $21. Seniors get a discount and pay about $27 





Flights into Roatan (list provided by Bay Island Tourism board)



I have been looking for flights to and from Roatan in the next few months so I beginning to feel like an expert in it. I have a list of all incoming flights below. This article pretty much has it right. Using google flight to identify the times you want to go, which are the cheaper times of the week, and by finding out nearby airports you can often find cheaper flights. Use Google to email to subscribe to lots of different options. Last week flights to Houston and back dropped 40% overnight. So it's worth spending the time to research it and sometimes waiting for the right moment.


Why Google Flights and Wikipedia (Yep!) Are a Traveler’s Best Friends

Traveling by bus around Honduras and to other countries


You can, if you have the stamina, travel to neighboring countries by bus. There are executive buses that are over air-conditioned, have a toilet on board, and can take you all the way to Guatemala City if you are so inclined. I did this once and I believe it was 19 hours straight driving in a bus with only 2 or 3 stops. Arduous. Obviously, the only reason you would do this is to save money. A flight from San Pedro Sula to Guatemala is over $200 but by bus, it is about $60 to $80.


Hedman Alas is a good example of one.
