Explore diving around the Barefoot Divers Lodge

What to see

At the healthy reefs off Roatán, expect to find a myriad of colorful reef fish like parrotfish, angelfish, surgeonfish and also large black grouper. Along the reef amongst gorgonian sea fans and other soft and hard corals, look for moray eels, crabs and lobsters. Keep an eye out for resting nurse sharks around the reef or eagle rays passing in the blue. For more pelagic marine life, head out to Cayos Cochinos to see schooling barracuda, trevally and snapper along with Caribbean reef sharks, sea turtles and sometimes stingrays.

At Útila, whale sharks are the main draw during the right season but don’t look past the sea mounts and walls which are teeming with activity. Guanaja is also known for more pelagic marine life and you might find more sharks and sea turtles in this area. Dive sites closer to the island feature critters like nudibranch, crustaceans and seahorses.

How to get there

Arrival:

  • The closest airport is Juan Manuel Galvez Int. Airport (RTB).
  • The resort is 7 km from the airport; transfers from/to the airport are included.
  • The resort staff will be waiting to pick you up in one of our air-conditioned vehicles if you provide us with your flight information prior to arrival.
  • Some flights go through San Pedro Sula, on the mainland of Honduras, though we recommend that you fly directly to Roatan if possible.
  • 30-90 day temporary visitor’s visas are issued by immigration upon entry into Honduras (usually at the airport), and cannot be obtained in advance.
  • The Honduran government requires that all visitors entering the country from the U.S. or Canada have a valid passport with an expiry date at least 6 months past their departure date.
  • Travelers with passports from other countries may have different visa requirements. Please ensure that your passports meet these requirements, as travelers with non-complying passports will be turned away at the airport
  • Check-in time is at 15:00.  or guests arriving earlier, we can take care of your registration papers, and you’re welcome to use the pool, relax in a hammock, hop in for a snorkel, or order some lunch if your room is not yet ready for an early check-in

Departure:

  • Check-out is at noon.
  • Once you have checked out at reception, a staff member will be available to help you with your bags and escort you to your transfer to the airport
  • It is recommended to be at the airport one hour prior to departing domestic flights and two hours prior to international flights.  On Saturdays and Mondays, which are high volume days, the airport requests that travelers be at the airport three hours prior to departing international flights, in order to avoid missing your flight.
