Board your private vehicle and our 5-hour tour will begin by heading to the unspoiled east end of Roatan, where we'll find authentic Garifuna villages, fishing towns on stilts, and breathtaking hilltop views of distant islands.

As we drive through French Harbour, look for shrimping trawlers unloading their day's catch (and maybe even your lunch!). This is a true taste of an un-commercialized Caribbean village! From here, we'll continue on to French Cay and one of the little known treasures on Roatan, Sherman Arch's Iguana Farm, where more than 2,700 iguanas wander freely about the property.

Now it's on to "The View," where we'll stop to take pictures of the most spectacular scenery (including both sides of the island!) and search for the best deals on souvenirs.

Next, we'll travel to Punta Gorda with a stop at a traditional Garifuna village, where you can truly experience what Roatan is all about. More than 200 years after first arriving in Honduras, Garifunas continue to embrace their native language, religious practices, ancestral food, and punta music and dance.

Finally, we'll arrive in Jonesville, an old Caribbean fishing village constructed on stilts over the water. To this day, it is almost completely populated by islanders and its only concession to tourism is one gift shop. Here, you'll board a motor boat and your guide will navigate shaded, deep mangrove tunnels barely wide enough for the vessel. Keep your camera ready to catch some of the wildlife that is abundant in this area! If you wish, you can even snorkel and see what lurks below the water!

During the tour, we'll take a little time to enjoy some local cuisine at a restaurant where you can observe alligators, monkeys, and birds. (The cost of lunch is not included in the tour price.)

At the end of your day of discovery on the island's east end, you'll be returned to the cruise ship terminal.

Shore Excursions

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
