The Sun and the Calm Return!

The past few weeks have been very hard on Roatan’s tourist industry. With the “riots” and roadblocks news reaching us in the north, things seem much worse than they were before, but in fact the situation is better. The power is on, but patchy in some areas, and the roads are clear. A friend told me that while in a cab to French harbor they had no trouble getting through a roadblock in front of the RECO plant.

The bad weather that had covered the area lifted this week and once again the island is a glistening gem. The good weather I hope will stay with us for a good while, five weeks of solid rain AND the whole RECO business is enough to drive someone mad!

We are planning to come down to Roatan in Jan, do you think that things will have sorted themselves out by then? Can you recommend a place to stay, and dive that is a responsible member of the community?

I can honestly say that as of Jan. 2009 any dive shop on Roatan is MORE than worthy of respect and trust. NOT SO FOR THE ISLAND OF COZUMEL! I personally highly recommend the Dive Masters and Instructors at LOS ROCOS, near West End. Tell them PJ sent you for VIP Love!
