Dive Trip – Roatan 10/28-11/4

Home » Dive Trip – Roatan 10/28-11/4

This trip was bittersweet as it was supposed to be our first trip with Ric & Kelley whom we met in July 2021 at St George’s Caye in Belize. Unfortunately, they couldn’t make it, so we will need to plan our next dive trip with them soon!

We dove with Roatan Divers which we picked because they are virtually next door to the Coral Vista condos. That worked out well for the first two days with sunshine and calm seas. Weather came in from the west for the rest of the week, so Roatan Divers arranged a van to take us to the south side of the island. South side trips are usually a paid upgrade, but Roatan Divers does these trips at their cost during inclement weather to make sure dives aren’t missed. Great service and nice to dive the other side of the island for the first time.

We stayed at Coral Vista #5 which we rented through Roatan Vacation Rentals. We arranged for transportation from the airport, to the grocery, to check in, and on to our unit through Omar on Kelley’s recommendation from a previous visit. Omar is the best and I highly recommend him. Coincidentally, Roatan Divers also used Omar for our south side diving van rides, so we got to enjoy Omar quite a bit throughout the trip. 

If you have any questions about where we stayed, who we dove with, local food that we ate or transportation used feel free to contact us.
