For a taste of all that Roatan has to offer, this Island Culture Tour and Sloth Hangout is ideal.
After being collected from your hotel or cruise dock, you’ll be whisked off in air-conditioned comfort on a fascinating ‘best of Roatan’ island tour, learning all about the unique and colorful history of the island’s Garifuna people, a music-led culture that’s only found in this part of the world. Take in the pretty towns of French Harbour and Barrio Los Fuertes, lesser-visited destinations where you’ll get an authentic taste of island life. Have your cameras at the ready, as you’ll also stop at the island’s highest point, with stunning 360-degree views all around.
This isn’t just a sightseeing tour though, there’s also a fantastic selection of hands-on activities. One of the highlights is a meet-and-greet with real-life sloths at the Daniel Johnson Monkey and Sloth Hangout. Watch the slowest mammals on earth as they hang out in the trees of the reserve, then enjoy an unforgettable up-close interaction with these intriguing creatures.
Then it’s time for treats, with a visit to Roatan’s chocolate factory, where you’ll see how the cacao bean - which is native to Central America - is transformed into your favorite chocolate snacks. Of course, you’ll get to sample the unique flavors, which include tropical coconut, spicy chile, and tart passion fruit. Finally, it’s on to Roatan’s rum cake factory, where you can taste delectable rum-infused morsels, alongside sampling some delicious local rums and even mixing your own brand-new flavor to take home as a souvenir.
After four-and-a-half blissful hours of exploration, you’ll be returned to your starting point, ready for your next Honduran adventure.
