Hungry in Honduras

Written by ext212 on 13 Jun, 2006

What we will find during our stay in Roatan is mediocre food with prices comparable to New York City. Each bill comes with a 10% tax and a steep 12% service charge. We tried five restaurants during our 4-day stay before we gave up and…Read More

Lounging on the Beach at West Bay

Written by beachlover1952 on 03 Apr, 2006
