My apologies, was just being silly and meant no disrespect.  All of your photos, especially the ones of your family, are truly beautiful.  That "favorite" one of your daughter is perfection!  When you say you were rejected by Maya Chan, do you mean they were full?  Interesting about the taxis not wanting to take you to the resort, my group also had trouble getting a taxi to a private tour office in town.  They were actually refused by all they asked.  I understand that the taxis wish for a bigger fare (pref all-day), but this is still disappointing and will affect my future plans in this port.  How did you get back to the port?  <<That's my moms biggest fear, that no one will bring her back.

No apologies needed, I just wanted to clarify that my view was them! Trust me... the second I saw your post I giggles to myself!

 

As for the taxi, once we found someone, they were basically our for the day. The resort pays them their fare. So when he dropped us off, he asked what time we wanted to be picked up, and he was there.  There were no problems at all with the transportation once we found it.

Much like a cruise, I have forgotten what day I am on, other than we were in Roatan. A few notes before we hit the pictures.

 

In my opinion the actual port itself is Meh. There were 3 ships on our pier (with another at the Carnival Pier) so it was very crowded. Also, the port is under construction which made it feel much smaller. The island while BEAUTIFUL was also under a lot of construction.

 

We decided to go to Daniel Johnson's Monkey and Sloth Hangout for our outing in Roatan... BEST CHOICE EVER! We had to make our way through the port and we got our own personal driver for the day that took us to the hangout. Let's get to the pics!

At the port we had: Harmony, Liberty and MSC (Tendered) All in the Port.

Look at Harmony trying to hide behind the trees. Silly girl...

To this day, if you ask my daughter what her favorite part of the cruise was, she will tell you: The Monkeys. So I promise you... she loved this... okay... she cried the whole time, but the memories are there!

The meta-picture. Me taking a picture of my wife taking a picture of herself and a bird, with me in the background taking a picture of her...that was easy to follow right?

Along with the Moneys and Sloth, we were able to go out and snorkel! Did you know along Roatan is the 2nd largest barrier reef in the world? I stayed behind with my daughter and let the wife snorkel.

The water was a little too choppy for us to go beyond the reef to the good snorkeling areas, but the water was still crystal clear!

 

When we were done with the hangout, our driver took us on a tour of Roatan (we could go anywhere we wanted) We decided to go to the West End and see where Roatan chocolate is made. While there I also bought some Hot Sauce that uses the Mutton Pepper. It is a sister pepper to the Habanero, but is more sweet and taste better.

 

We got back to the ship, dropped the daughter off in the kids area and we had Dinner at Chops. Service was great and the food was amazing and plentiful! I would say the Mushroom Bisque might be my favorite soup ever, and the best thing I have on the ship.

 

After dinner, we walked around a little bit and just enjoyed each other's company.

 

Tomorrow we are in Cozumel, and that is an adventure.

Last time.... the monkey was successful in stealing my Grandmothers hair😲  She did not go in the enclosure this time, once was more than enough for her.  Ahh... memories.

Your daughter could not be any cuter.  The monkeys would probably make me cry too! We just went on the Harmony in December and had a great time.

Thank you! She is pretty awesome! The monkeys really were awesome! You could barely feel them on your head. It was overall a fun experience!
