"Unfortunately the weather was not conducive to kayak as the water was too ruff and there was too much wind. Our tour guide from Roatan Anderson Tours, Mr. Jamie Lisandro Ruiz (pronounced Hi mee) advised us that we would not have a good time kayaking and took us around the island. It was a wonderful experience. He drove us to the Rum Factory, the shopping areas, through some residential areas for a cultural experience and we stopped at looking at the sloth's and monkeys. Lunch was provided and we had an authentically cooked red snapper fish. Jamie did a great job and I would highly recommend others to seek him out for his experiences."..."

Shore Excursion: Zip Line with Monkey/Sloth Hang-out and Glass Bottom Boat
"We loved our excursion with Roatan Anderson Tours. They were right where they said they would be when we got off the cruise ship (Liberty of the Seas). They quickly introduced us to Ron, our guide for the day and we set off. The ziplines were a couple of blocks away so we walked there, faster than the line of traffic waiting on the roads. We loved the ziplines and the guys that took us across the course. My teens enjoyed it and my 11 year-old who was refusing to do it all month said it was the best thing he did our entire cruise, he as jumping off platforms, swinging upside down and backwards by the end of the course. My 8 year old was so nervous, but they let her do it with me, so we did the lines together, she loved it and was going without hands by the end. So much fun. After the ziplines Ron guided us to the animal part of the tour on the same property. We held a sloth, parakeets, had monkeys climb all over us and loved every minute. All the while Ron was waiting for us with the van and ac ready to go so when we were done he quickly drove us across the island to the glass bottom boat. They were holding the ship for us, and were able to make room for us to all fit comfortably. It was super rocky on the boat, if you get seasick easily don't do this! My kids loved the views though and we saw multiple turtles, a stingray, and fish galore, The reefs were amazing! I couldn't believe how big it was. Its a perfect way to see fish without swimming in the water. After the boat we met back up with Ron and he convinced us to check out the chocolate factory. It was so neat and we got some yummy chocolate to bring home. We also checked out a market for fun shopping. Next he took us to the Roatan sign to take pictures before we headed back to the boat. Ron was super nice. Answered all the questions we had and seemed very proud of his country. We were back to the boat with plenty of time to sit on our balcony and watchthe pier runners load up at the last minute. Such a great day and a beautiful island."..."
