The neighborhood of Punta Gorda gets its name from the granite promontory of Punta Gorda, rising 82 feet (25 meters) above sea level. Beaches here include Playa de los Ingleses and Playa Verde. The avenues along Punta Gorda are called Rambla O’Higgins and Rambla República de Mèjico.

Don’t miss the snail-like staircase, called Darwin’s Ladder, built in honor of Charles Darwin, who visited the area studying its soil composition and strata. Visitors should also see Navy Square, or Plaza de la Armada, formerly known as Virgilio Square. It’s a cross between a plaza and a park that contains the important monument Fight, or Monument to the Fallen in the Sea. Sculpted by Spanish-Uruguayan artist Eduardo Yepes Diaz in 1957, it honors those killed in the line of duty while in the Navy.

Punta Gorda is also home to another notable monument, the Pyramid of Solis, or Monument to the Discoveries. This was erected in honor of Juan Díaz de Solís, the 16th-century navigator and explorer who first visited the area. He named the Río de la Plata and continued up to the confluence of the Uruguay and Paraná rivers.

In addition, be sure to visit Molino de Perez, a historic watermill that now houses a cultural center. The stone building was constructed atop a mortar base of lime and sand between 1780 and 1790. In 1836, the building was acquired by Juan María Pérez, a powerful merchant who transformed it into a productive mill that continued to operate even after his death. In 1895, Molino de Perez was partially destroyed by flooding. The wheel and elements of the building were restored, and some of the original mill machinery remains.

Enjoy a 5-hour panoramic motor-coach ride that will take you to see small fishermen villages, then stopping at a panoramic point to take some pictures of the views and multi-colored ocean, with also the possibility to purchase souvenirs. Then, you will continue your journey up and down the hills, while admiring amazing views of the coastline until finally reaching Garifuna village of Punta Gorda that is where the majority of the Garifuna people, descendants of African slaves who settled here in 1797, live in Roatan. On the way back, enjoy a short stop at another panoramic point to view a faraway picturesque stilt-village, Oak Ridge, inhabited by pirates in the past and now the actual home of family-owned fishing companies that after many decades are still the second biggest industry of the island.

Arguably one of the most popular tours in Roatan and definitely the most nature oriented one! We'll take you on a paddle boat (You won't have to paddle) to check out the mangroves at Oakridge, check out how some of the first settlers of Roatan live and dive into the clearest waters of Roatan. Get your bathing suit ready (optional) and jump into a natural ocean pool in the middle of the mangroves. There really are no words to explain it, you have to see it for yourself! This is definitely a must-see location in Roatan.
