  1. We love Rony. Zipline and West Bay would be a perfect day!
  2. Any chance you can get them to reconsider? We have been to Roatan at least once a year for 15 years. Last year we spent 8 days at a resort on West Bay. No sand flea bites! I am normally the one who gets bug bites head to toe - but have had no issues in Roatan. I didn't even use bug spray. West Bay has some of the clearest, most beautiful water and incredible snorkeling right from the shore - shame to miss it.
  3. Yes, I know the life vests are required. I have read that they will not allow you to snorkel without them. I just would like to know how much they cost to rent. I don't need the cost of all of the gear, just the vest.
  4. If you could do me a huge favor, I'd be so appreciative. Can you find out if there is a fee for only a snorkel life vest? We will be bringing our own gear but do not have life vests. I have read that they are required.
  5. Were you able to get any of the Cruise Compasses to post? Will be on 10/12. Trying to plan 2 group dinners. Thanks!
  6. Any chance you could post pics of the daily schedules PRETTY PLEASE? Is the ship staying on Miami time or switching to Roatan time? I think they are 2 hours behind.
  7. Yes, they met you at the port under a white canopy. They transport you by van directly to the marina. On the return, you can get dropped at the beach for an hour or two and then catch a taxi back OR they will return you to the pier area. In my opinion, the price for this excursion is one of the best values of all of the the excursions we've done. It just feels luxurious sailing on a catamaran. When you see the boats packed with people at the stingray sandbar, you will be so thankful you chose Stingray Saling!
  8. Agree, Rony is a great choice. We are booked with him for next month.
  9. Thanks. I thought they normally stay on Miami time. All of our previous Royal Caribbean Cruises did not change the clocks. I just wanted to make sure they haven't changed anything recently. We just needed to know specifically if the ship time changed. For example, if we want to meet a local friend at noon for lunch. That would make sense to us, but to them it is only going to be 10 am, too early for lunch.
  10. We will be on Symphony Of The Seas next month. We are trying to coordinate something in Roatan. I need to know if the ship stays on Miami time or switches to local time?
  11. I agree with crewsweeper. Look for a website that caters to those in wheelchairs. Much of Roatan is rustic and not easily accessible. It would be good to book with someone who has specific experience.
  12. He is very trustworthy. We have know him and toured with him for 10 years +/-. I'm sure he'd refund your money if the port was missed for some reason. He, as well as the other tour companies, rely on business from tourists to support their families. I doubt any would risk a bad review by not refunding your money. Rony is a great guy - I'm sure you will have a memorable day!
  13. Ronystours.com has a tour that would be great for this. I'm not sure if this could have been the tour you booked before. You can contact Rony in advance. If you let him know what you are bringing, he can have a certain number of children meet you and you can give the supplies directly to them. Or, if you have other things you'd like to do, he'd be glad to deliver them for you. He does a great job coordinating visits with children in his neighborhood. The children are just precious and they really appreciate anything that is given to them.
  14. We've always had great drivers with Rony. Sorry to hear that your experience was not "great".
  15. We have been to Honduras 10+ times. You can do all of the things listed in one day. Contact Rony and book a private driver for the day. South Shore Canopy and West Bay are very close. This is our favorite zipline and most spectacular snorkeling location. Walk right in from the beach. We've seen such a great variety of fish there including the largest parrotfish. Chocolate factory is not worth the time, imho. It's not really a "factory", but a shop where you can see how chocolate is made. You can try free samples. I personally wouldn't visit again, but it is between Manawakie and South Shore, so you could easily add it. It would probably add about 30-45 minutes to your day. 20 minutes to Manawakie 1 hour there 25-30 minutes to South Shore Zipline 1 hour there 5-10minutes to West Bay 2-3 hours there 25-30 minutes back to pier Totally doable. Sounds like a great day to me! We love all of these activities and have done them many times. Book with Rony. He is a great guide. He will make sure you have a great day. I wouldn't take a chance booking with anyone else. You could get assigned a new driver or someone that speaks little English. I've never read a bad comment about Rony. He's so friendly and knowledgeable. Your driver can make all the difference in your experience in Roatan - use the best!
