Sometimes you wake up and you just know you’re going to have a great day.
I have been staying with the incomparable Sue-Ann Solomon of At Your Service Roatan (check out her blog as well!) Last year when I came to Roatan to work remotely for a few weeks, Sue-Ann arranged accommodation appropriate for someone working while here, rented me a cell phone at an excellent rate and provided tips on getting the best long-distance rates, provided a USB wireless modem so I could connect easily to the internet, provided pickup and drop-off services from the airport – she really made my trip as simple and enjoyable as possible. I can’t recommend her work enough!
Another great find in Roatan, from my trip last year, is the Enomis dive shop in West End. There are many options for dive shops here, but Lee and Anita have been very accommodating of my schedule – a feat other dive shops wouldn’t be able to accomplish. They also take only small groups of divers out, and don’t rush you – you’ll dive the time your air allows with them, instead of a strict 45-minute cap you’ll see at some other dive shops. Diving the swim-throughs in the shallows near ‘Hole in the Wall’ with their dive master Jürgen – that is my happy place =)
