We both want to get certified to scuba as well so we thought we could do our in class part here and then our open dives there because it's supposed to be a great place to dive.
Has anyone ever visited Roatan or anywhere else in Honduras? What did you think of it?

I could be wrong about this but I think in 2007 Honduras was voted the poorest country in the world. (I think Haiti is usually number one). Its very poor and things there are dirt cheap. I remember seeing children begging for coins and it just broke my heart. One time I bought all these neighborhood kids ice cream (there was like 48 of them) and it literally cost me like $5 (american dollars) It was really sad to see children suffering like this.
The country is very warm and I think it has beautiful mountains. I'm not familiar with Roatan so I am no help there but I think you will enjoy it. Its not your typical tropical paradise vacation but its very relaxing and I swear you feel at peace there. I think you and your sister will have so much fun!

If you are going for diving... it's amazing! Well, as long as the weather is nice. We went snorkeling during a storm and it was AWFUL! Since it's all mountainous the rain water washes mud into the sea making it impossible to see anything for quite some time. But, if you are diving you'll probably go out a lot further than I did.
Oh, and expect to see a lot of machine guns! There are guards standing with them everywhere!

I looked online to humor him and found Roatan and it looks beautiful!! Although I know it is a poor country and your stories about the kids are sooo sad ( Looks like a great place to dive or just lounge on the beach, and I'm sure that tourist money is much needed.

I don't think we'll stay at a resort though, I think we're going to find a nice rental in West Bay or something I can't wait!!
